Opto-mized Dynamic Response
409 Opto Compressor is a powerful and versatile plug-in with a highly optimized dynamic response, based on the design and principles of analog Opto Compressors.
Characterized by its natural and musical gain reduction, the 409 provides from gentle, transparent compression - to heavy deep-cutting limiting, suitable for a very wide range of applications.
Like its predecessor 925 Compressor, the 409 Opto Compressor is developed using physical modelling principles recreating classic Optical-element compression characteristics, with a host of extra controls and features.
The main controls enable easy and precise tuning of compression response, with Attack and Release ranges up to 200ms and 787ms respectively.
In contrast to fixed-value switch ‘presets’, the Ratio is controlled by a continuously adjustable dial allowing accurate and ‘tunable’ setting of the compression slope. And an additional carefully selected set of features allows the user to unveil this unit’s true power, complementing its dynamic process...
Sidechain filtering & monitor, Dry/Wet Mix, Peak/RMS detection, Stereo Link, Look-ahead, and specially developed new parameters ‘Damping’ and ‘Skew’ which allow to smooth and fine-tune the detector response, - these controls are what make the 409 truly versatile providing the user with exceptional control and shaping of the signal’s envelope.
- Highly optimized dynamic response
- Feed-back type compressor/limiter topology
- Continuously adjustable Ratio control
- ‘Damping’ and ‘Skew’ controls
- +Panel with extra features
"The 409... is just, WOW ! ... Drums, Vocals, Bass, or an entire mix. This new compressor is my new all-rounder, from loose creamy compression to tight and precise with the extended damping, side-chain filtering, skew, detection algo's and look-ahead features - Amazing !"
