Console-style mix bus compression

Go from subtle dynamics smoothing to extreme compression squashing. Impact features a clean and well-organized user interface that emulates the look of a console mix bus compressor. With support for multichannel tracks up to 7.1 and sampling rates up to 192 kHz, Impact is ideal for professional music and post environments where critical control of dynamic program material is essential.

Impact includes four selectable compression ratios and variable controls for Attack, Release, Threshold, and Make-up Gain. The interface features a Gain Reduction meter that replicates an analog meter with an animated bouncing needle, displaying authentic ballistics as it meters gain reduction. Impact also includes a side-chain input, enabling you to use any Pro Tools audio track as an external key.
