Cut Through Recordings has announced the release of the Convergence audio plugin, a multi-band mastering compressor effect that draws a lot of inspiration from its predecessor M4, but brings along with it many new exciting features.

Convergence allows bands to be added and removed as needed rather than having a fixed number of bands. It can have anywhere from 2 to 10 bands of compression depending on what you need.

Convergence uses crossover filters with -6dB gain at the crossover frequency that sum together to create a perfectly flat frequency response. These -6dB crossovers also introduce the least amount of phase shift possible while still being low on CPU usage. The compressors are designed to have a digital feel to their attack and release timing to be as precise as possible.

Convergence features

  • Up to 10 bands of compression.
  • Adjustable crossovers.
  • Bands can be added or removed.
  • Attack/Release envelope visualizer.
  • Compression Curve visualizer.
  • Gain Reduction over time visualizer.
  • Oversampling up to 8x.
  • Linkable controls.
  • Soloable bands.

The plugin is available in VST/VST3, AU, AAX and LV2 formats for $45 USD. A free version limited to 2-4 bands is available to download. Oversampling is restricted to 2x and the compression display is disabled in the free version.
