Antares Audio Technologies has introduced the world’s first dual-stage vocal compressor plugin with machine learning. By combining the industry’s most popular vocal compressor styles and controls into one powerful plugin, Auto-Tune Vocal Compressor aims to deliver the ultimate vocal compressor.

Auto-Tune Compressor supports the stacking of two fully featured and tweakable compressors from four of the most popular styles (FET, Opto A, Opto B, and Modern) in a series to create the modern vocal sounds of today’s music. Using advanced machine learning technology, Auto-Tune Vocal Compressor analyzes a track and recommends the optimum starting point and compression levels to quickly get the sound you want. Finding the best compression settings is now faster and easier than ever.

Auto-Tune Vocal Compressor also comes with compelling artist presets covering a wide range of vocal styles and moods to help jumpstart your creativity and make it easy to experiment with new ideas. For added personality, lean into the built-in Warm feature and apply the cozy vibe of tube saturation and harmonics to vocals across one or both compressors.
