Sonoris Mastering Compressor released!

The Sonoris Mastering Compressor (SMCP) is a wideband mastering compressor in VST, AU and RTAS format for Windows and Mac. It is an ultra clean compressor suitable for delicate material. No odd harmonic distortion that can be found in most compressors is present in the SMCP. To reduce residual artifacts the SMCP features upsampling of the audio up to 8 times. Transparency can be further enhanced by selecting auto-release and feedback detection together with two soft knees.

If a more aggressive behaviour is needed you can for example choose feedforward detection with a harder knee. It can have some “character” if pushed. If needed, the audio can be warmed up with even harmonics with the flip of a switch.

Besides working on a full mix, the SMCP can also work in split mode on the individual L,R, M or S channels or anything in between, with the variable link. The sidechain for each channel has a selectable high-pass, band-pass and low-pass filter. This gives great flexibility and allows for creative enhancement of the audio.
