Antress releases Modern Compressor, Meter and Equalizer

Modern Compressor

Antress has released Modern Compressor, Modern Meter (the VU-metering that is also part of Modern Compressor) and Modern Equalizer. These freeware plug-ins were made with SynthMaker.

As the name suggests, the Modern Compressor is not for vintage or classic style compression but geared toward a modern type of compression that might be useful in musical style such as Hard Trance, Hard House, Nu Metal etc.

Features

  • Controls for Threshold, Gain, Input, Limiter, Attack, Release, Knee and Ratio
  • Stereo VU meters (input or output can be selected)
  • Power and VU switches

The Modern Meter plug-in only features controls for Attack and Release and a switch to select metering for either VU or PPM.

Modern Equalizer is a simple equalizer with separate sections for Low Band and High Band controls. Each has Gain, Frequency and Band controls. You can see a screenshot of Modern Equalizer here.

I couldn’t find download links on the Antress website so download the plug-ins here: Modern Compressor, Modern Meter and Modern Equalizer (Let me know if the download links are not working and I will put up another link).

Update 13-11-2006: All plug-ins are also available with a black skin. Download them here: Compressor, Meter and Equalizer.

    Antress added Modern Limiter to the page Stefan mentioned above with links for the white and black skin.

    so far I have had the entire “modern pack” installed on my PC for about 4 days. It seems that all of the plug-ins may not be supported by all VST platforms. Some load up and some just don’t. As far as the black limiters and compressors, they are awsome. I hope to see more plug-ins from this designer in the future.
