de la Mancha releases D2
de la Mancha has released D2, an all-rounder compressor with an easy to use interface.
It demonstrates the compressor algorithms of its big brothers, bathtub and sidearm while keeping the interface simple for quickly dialling in some common settings. D2 can be heavy or subtle, razor quick or gentle, clean or dirty and is happy as an insert or buss compressor.

- True stereo, each channel is compressed independently.
- Threshold down to –40dB.
- Ratio 1.5:1 to infinity.

- Release from 5ms to 2.4s.
- Make-up gain to 20dB.
- VU meter shows actual and peak levels of gain reduction.
- Dirt option gives added distortion and enhancement.
- All control parameters named and mapped to midi CC.
D2 is available as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.
