- Transient processor and a MS controller for each frequency band.
- Sound can be processed from single broadband to five bands.
- Adjustable soft knee brick-wall clipper.
- Auto Delay function allows producing a zero attack by introducing a delay line on the processed signal.
- A/B morphing system.
- Preset manager allows to save global presets made of two different presets including the A/B morphing slider position.
- Factory presets are provided for every plug-in.
