Plugin Alliance has introduced a brand new plugin by Brainworx, based on one of the most coveted modern stereo compressors. Featuring True RMS detector circuits and crest factor control, the AMEK Mastering Compressor is like having 3 complimentary compressors in one.

Like the original high-end hardware that inspired it, AMEK’s Mastering Compressor takes advantage of multiple True RMS detectors. This allows it to respond intelligently to changes in signal energy in the same naturally logarithmic way as the human ear, for stunningly transparent dynamic control.

Instead of employing conventional attack and release controls, the AMEK Mastering Compressor offers an even more flexible way of dialing in the perfect compressor timing. Using 3 distinct detector circuits—slow, fast and peak—you can choose exactly how much compression you want for each aspect of the signal, to strike the perfect blend. It’s almost like having three complimentary compressors in one.

AMEK Mastering Compressor features

  • An analog model of Dirk Ulrich’s privately owned compressor unit.
  • Offers a different way to approach compression, with unrivaled transparency.
  • Two True RMS detectors and one Peak detector blend together to respond intelligently to real signal energy.

  • VCA Clip control.
  • Ambience lets you easily hear exactly what your compressor is doing.
  • Headroom control for gain-staging.
  • Detector Activity Monitor displays the relation between the three level detectors to visualize timing behavior and Threshold setting.
  • Auto Listen to accurately position the filter in the frequency domain and to clearly hear the effect of the dynamics.
  • Mono-Maker sums your low-frequency content to mono, giving you focused, punchy bass response.
  • Stereo Width to expand the stereo width of your tracks.
  • A separate mono version for using the plugin on individual tracks such Bass Drum, Snare, Bass, Vocals etc.
  • Scalable user interface.
