JoaCHIP's Battle Compressor


The BattleComp is a punchy, yet smooth compressor with an EQ and a highpass filter on it's internal sidechain and tube emulation + optional soft-clipping limiter in the output stage to keep peaks under control, all in one VST/AU plugin. The highpass filter makes it easy to avoid pumping effects when there's a lot of bass. This compressor is suitable for both master signal compression and per-instrument compression.
