Synthblitz Audio releases DNX-03 multiband compressor

Synthblitz Audio DNX-03

Synthblitz Audio has launched DNX-03, a multiband compressor effect plug-in for Windows.

DNX-03 is a three-band stereo Compressor (win vst plugin) inspired by the analog models, with some added features such as noise reduction and wide stereo control for each individual freq-band.
The DNX-03 is able to split the incoming signal into three frequency-bands using a 6dB per octave crossover.

First-order filters are considered by many audiophiles to be ideal for crossovers.

Each band is passed through a compressor and then through a stereo processor where compression,gain and stereo image can be altered and improved. The outputs of the compressors and processors are then re-combined and fed to the master output.

DNX-03 features

  • Division of the incoming signal into three independent bands:
    • Low Split Frequency: 60Hz – 1.4kHz.
    • High Split Frequency: 1.4kHz – 15kHz.
  • Three stereo compressors inside.
  • Noise Reduction.
  • Four controls for enhanced stereo (one each band and one for output).
  • Five Vu-Meter LED, absolute precision to measure Gain reduction and output level.
  • Two virtual moving coil Vu-Meters, analog style (good precision).
  • Limiter function to 0dB in one click.
  • Tube emulator switch.
  • Pre-Amp -/+ 12dB.
  • Includes detailed manual.

The DNX-03 plug-in for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for the introductory price of 19 EUR.
