Minimal System Instruments releases Punch Evolved compressor plugin

Minimal System Instruments has released Punch Evolved, a compressor effect plug-in for Windows.

The original Punch compressor is one of Minimal System Instruments most popular and respected plugins. Punch is an up-to-date version of one of the all time classic analogue compression and limiting processors, the 1176AE.

The new Punch Evolved plugin takes this highly respected processor even further with a completely redesigned engine and the addition of new sound shaping features such as Mid/Side processing, EQ, and Gate sections.

    v1.01 was released:

    – Issue with the EQ section. The High and Low EQ parameters would
    switch functionality on loading. This meant that the High EQ control
    would affect the low frequencies and the Low control would affect the
    high frequencies.
    – Optimization of the plugin for less CPU usage.
