112dB has announced the release of a new audio effect plugin for Windows and Mac.

Mikron Compressor is an easy to use compressor that can go from very transparent to warm and powerful. Like 112dB’s previously released Mikron Reverb, this is another ‘little brother of’, this time of Big Blue Compressor.

112dB Mikron Compressor

Mikron Compressor has the same sound, but its mode of operation has been compressed into only a few intuitive knobs. Despite its apparent simplicity this well thought out audio plugin still offers a great amount of flexibility. With shorter attack times the sound will be very clean and smooth. Longer attack times in combination with the Choke knob will let you achieve vintage tube compressor style coloration. Or you can make the sound really dirty, and use the Mix knob for some ‘New York compression’.

With a latency of only 1 millisecond Mikron Compressor is not only suited for mixing and mastering, but also for live performances.

Mikron Compressor features

  • Transparent and clean sound at short attack times.
  • Tube style saturation to add a vintage sound.
  • Wet/dry knob for ‘New York style compression’.
  • Built-in lookahead.
  • Cat’s eye’ – meter to give you immediate visual feedback.
  • Low CPU.
  • Easy, intuitive interface.
  • NKS support.

Mikron Compressor (VST/AU/AAX) is on sale for the intro price of 25 EUR (regular 35 EUR). A free 60-day demo version is available for download.
