    Presswerk has all the features you expect in a compressor...

    • Sidechaining: use ducking to create more space in your mixes, or get creative with keying and pumping effects.
    • Adjustable compression curve and envelope. Find the best settings, get the most out of your Format-AUdio using the soft knee, compression ratio, attack and release and other controls.
    • Loud.¬†Oh yes, Presswerk is more than capable of making your tracks louder!
    • Soft Clip. Roll off those harsh peaks and avoid distortion when output levels get too high.

    Plus what we added to enhance Presswerk's capabilities:

    • 6 special views¬†for better workflow: Drum Compressor, Vocal Compressor, M/S Program Compressor, Easy Compressor, Bus Compressor, Limiter
    • M/S mode. More detailed stereo signal processing
    • Dual Phase Rotator (DPR): applies a radio broadcaster's trick to reduce unwanted asymmetries in the signal. It smears phases, increases headroom a little and adds bass 'oomph'.
    • Saturation.¬†This is where Presswerk really shines - adding colour and character to your Format-AUdio. Apply Saturation sparingly for subtle warmth and transient-taming, or crank it up to create tape overdrive-like effects.
    • Internal parallel compression.¬†The Mix controls let you blend the compressed and uncompressed signals. This helps preserve some of the original, natural dynamics.
    • Variable detection topologies:
      • Feed-forward¬†is modern and 'surgical', it tracks the input very precisely.
      • Feed-back¬†is 'musical', loose-sounding and forgiving‚ÄĒlike classic hardware.
      • Interactive¬†continuously analyzes the signal and blends FF and FB accordingly.
    • Adjust and store global preferences
    • New MIDI learn controls
