HoRNet Plugins has announced the release of a new dynamics processor designed for the master bus. A collaboration with Italian mixing engineer Antonio Porcelli, the SyncPressor plugin aims to provide “glue” to your mix while being transparent.

The effect is accomplished using a simple assumption: the compression moves dynamically with the track so attack and release time should be set according to the track’s tempo, for this reason in SyncPressor you will not find the usual attack and release knobs, but two dropdown that use time divisions relative to the compressor’s internal tempo, which in turn can be synched to the DAW, set manually or automatically detected from the audio.

The plugin can also work as a track compressor, featuring variable knee, RMS mode, feedback processing, external sidechain and an HP filter on the sidechain detector (both internal and external).

SyncPressor allows “unlinking” of the left and right channels in the internal detector so that the compressor works like a “dual mono” processor, compressing left and right channels individually. This allows for a wider stereo image.

HoRNet SyncPressor is available for purchase for 39.99 EUR. It comes in 64-bit VST/VST3, AU and AAX formats for Windows and macOS.
