Tokyo Dawn Labs has announced version 1.0.0 of its Feedback Compressor freeware compressor effect plug-in for Windows.

A carefully designed dynamic range compressor. The processor is dedicated to sum/bus compression and is the result of an intensive study about the musical behavior of the feed-back compressor topology. Most modern compressors analyze the input signal to control gain reduction. The feed-back compressor design however “listens” to its output. This non-intuitive approach delivers an unobtrusive and highly musical compression characteristic that is able to handle complex signals with ease.

The TDR Feedback Compressor is carefully tuned for intuitive and musical operation.

Feedback Compressor features

  • Beautiful “Feed-Back Compression” sound and behavior.
  • 64bit floating point precision for all relevant calculations.
  • Differential oversampling structure.
  • Internal re-sampling via high quality linear phase filters.
  • Advanced stereo-linking (reduces audible cross-modulation).
  • Adaptive integration time RMS detector. Optional PEAK and tunable RMS detection.
  • Freely adjustable compression knee.
  • Upward compression mode.
  • Optional side-chain 6dB/Oct high-pass and 3dB/Oct energy equalization filters.
  • Optional “color” functions.
  • Independent release controls for fast and slow program material.
  • Delta preview mode. Allows to preview the difference between compressed and original signal.
  • Latency compensated parallel bypass (i.e. processing not interrupted).

Feedback Compressor is available as freeware for Windows (32/64-bit VST).
