Plugin Boutique has announced a sale on the Dragon Fire compressor plugin by Denise, an effect that offers a new and easy way to tame and color the dynamics of your tracks.

Dragon Fire uses tonal compression and adds Shape technology to finely shape the sound and behavior of your compressor. The plugin offers the ease of use of an equalizer with its push-pull graph, but more freedom, power and simplicity than a multi-band compressor.

When denise started to conceptualize a ‘denise style’ compressor, they wanted to go beyond emulating a classic compressor. It’s after all denise’s mission to take inspiration from the analogue world, but create plugins with their own unique soul, craziness and character. denise wanted their compressor to give you the freedom to tune the sound of the compressor itself – imagine fine-tuning the compressor’s saturation amount based on the gain reduction, or tweaking the envelope follower to sound more analog or vintage.

Secondly, they wanted to make compressing multiple bands easy, controlled and more flexible than with a traditional multiband compressor. To achieve this, denise integrated the push-pull technology from denise’s popular God Mode, so you can target the compression towards specific elements in your mix, like the snare in a full beat. These new features and technology made us rethink the mixing process entirely.

Dragon Fire is available for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3, AU and AAX), priced only $39 USD until August 20th, 2023.
