Fazertone has announced the release of a free audio plugin that emulates the legendary MXR Dyna Comp.

Comp 76 uses Fazertone’s neural network technology, bringing an analog envelope follower and saturation from the original circuit.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a piece of gear that’s in more pedalboards than this legendary classic from the 70s, and there’s a good reason for that: instead of spending hours finding the right attack/release/ratio combination, you can rely on the fact that this is the piece of gear that has stood the test of time as being the perfect match for guitar and bass.

All you need is to add it to your tone stack, adjust the sensitivity and volume to your liking, and you’re set. Push the sensitivity to the max and you’ll get a gorgeous, long sustain, with strong percussive attacks; while you can just add a little bit to even out your playing.

Comp 76 is available to download in VST3 and AU plugin formats for Windows and Mac in return for signing up to the Fazertone mailing list.
