Free TDR Feedback Compressor II PC/Mac VST AU

fbcompII

The TDR Feedback Compressor II is a major design update of its critically acclaimed predecessor. The compressor is dedicated to the highest fidelity stereo program (2-buss) compression, but shines equally in classic mixing tasks.

Most modern compressors analyze the input signal to control gain reduction. This is known as a “feed-forward” topology. The TDR Feedback Compressor II, however, analyzes the output. This approach delivers unobtrusive and highly musical compression characteristics which mean the compressor is able to handle complex signals with ease.

The TDR Feedback Compressor II takes this traditional compression topology to new heights as a state of the art dynamics processor combining an unusual and highly flexible, yet intuitive control scheme. The compressor has been carefully tuned for intuitive and musical operation for almost every situation. No compromises have been made in order to achieve the highest possible quality of dynamic control.

We want to emphasize the fact that the processor neither tries to emulate any previously available device, nor does it follow popular trends like “virtual analogue”, “circuit modeling” or similar buzz words. This is a proud digital processor, made with an immense amount of love and care.

Notable features

Beautiful “Feed-Back Compression” sound and behavior
64bit floating point precision for all relevant calculations
Multi-rate processing structure for highest accuracy, critical operations run up to 8 times the original rate
Delta oversampled signal path (bit transparent without processing)
Three side-chain filter slopes: 3dB/Oct, 6dB/Oct and 12dB/Oct
Super fast and natural sounding compression.
Independent release controls for peak and RMS compression
Unique control scheme
Crest Factor control
Advanced stereo linking options optimized for the stereo bus
Delta preview mode. Allows to preview the difference between compressed and original signal
Latency compensated parallel bypass (i.e. processing not interrupted)

MacvLogicDubstep MPV trainer Nigel Broad is back with another great electronic dance music exploration, Dubstep Essentials . Join Nigel in this 25-video collection as he takes you under his wing and creates a full-blown Dubstep track from Drum and Bass to final mix…

Dubstep is an exciting style of music that lends itself to a lot of creativity and the powerful use of plugins and virtual instruments of all kinds. Nigel Broad, a chart-topping dance producer, knows a thing or two about Dubstep and in this Logic tutorial he creates a full-blown Dubstep track, starting with the drum programming and evolving all the way through the final mix.

This 25-video class starts off with Logic’s mighty Ultrabeat drum machine, where you’ll learn to set up, program and tweak a killer Dubstep drum beat. Nigel is the ultimate Ultrabeat and Logic master and shares his hit-making tips throughout this tutorial.

What’s a Dubstep track without a Wobble bass? Using the ES 2, Massive and RAZOR, Nigel shows you how to create a composite bass line that will blow you away! Next he conjures up some cool pads, leads and SFX that really make the track shine. Finally, Nigel wraps it up by talking about song structure before he mixes and masters his custom track.
