After releasing the new Grind multi-mode wavetable distortion/filter plugin earlier this week, Audio Damage is back with a version 2.0.0 update of Rough Rider.

The free compressor effect plugin for Windows and Mac now comes with a new procedural UI and AAX/VST3 versions.

Audio Damage Rough Rider 2

Rough Rider is a modern compressor with a bit of “vintage” style bite and a uniquely warm sound.

Perfect for adding compression effects to your drum buss, it also sounds great with synth bass, clean guitar, and backing vocals.

Definitely not an all-purpose compressor, Rough Rider is at its best when used to add pump to rhythmic tracks.

Rough Rider 2.0.0 is available for download now (VST/VST3/AU/AAX).
