Foolproof compressor and limiter

If you want a great-sounding, flexible, and easy-to-use compression tool, this is it. Smack! is a professional compressor/limiter plugin designed specifically for music applications—but it can handle virtually any kind of audio material with amazing results.

Featuring three compression modes, unique compression ratios, and harmonic distortion, Smack! will help you bring a wide range of sonic variation to your mix. The plugin supports side-chain processing, multichannel track types, and the full range of Pro Tools sample rates and plugin formats. Automatic gain reduction controls the volume of just about any source in a very “musical” manner—adding fullness, intelligibility, and excitement to any track. Plus, an intuitive interface with the look and feel of vintage devices enables you to create a huge range of tonal coloration with a minimal set of controls.
