ATK Side-Chain Compressor is a stereo sidechain compressor plugin.

This update changes storage format and allows linked channels to be steered by a mix of power coming from each channel, each passing through its own attack-release filter. It enables more creative workflows with makeup gain specific to each channel.

The rest of the plugin works as before, with an optional Middle/Side processing as well as side-chain working either on each channel separately or in middle/side.

ATK Side-Chain Compressor features

  • Two separate channels that can be linked together.
  • Middle/Side processing.
  • Control between peak power and RMS detection.
  • Color section (color and quality).
  • Dry/wet section for parallel compression.

ATK Side-Chain Compressor is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU).
