DYN500 Channel Dynamics Plug-in for Windows, Mac & Linux
A flexible, console grade channel compressor with analogue warmth and character.
The DYN500 plug-in emulates all the desirable qualities of a professional analogue channel compressor, taming dynamics without restricting the natural character of a mix or performance.
Styled as a virtual 500-series module, the DYN500 provides soft-knee compression coupled with a gentle tape-saturation overdrive for warmth and character at high signal levels. Just like the best analogue gear, the harder you hit it, the better it sounds.
Designed as a 'one in every channel' compressor / dynamics plug-in, the DYN500 can be used in mono or stereo channels, delivering professional console grade processing, with efficient use of CPU and system resources.
More efficient use of CPU resources allows more plug-in instances in a typical audio workstation project.
