Pure Compressor 3
Pure precision with full control
Pure Compressor 3 provides a wide range of compression, from clean transparent subtle compression to classic heavy pumping, giving you total hands on control over every parameter as well as of the fundamental characteristics of compression itself. In addition to the more common dynamics processing controls (ratio, attack, release, etc), Pure Compressor 3 provides control over the essential dynamics profile it uses, all in order to offer the user full control over the processing even in the most demanding situations.
Two parameters are provided that are kind of unique to dynamics processing: Dynamics Ratio and Level Independent Detection (L.I.D), using the dynamic range content of the signal and not just the signal levels as standard processors do. Dynamic Ratio is controlling the amount of auto-ratio determined by the signal dynamics and the manual ratio setting. L.I.D. (Level Independent Detector) controls the amount of auto-threshold determined by the signal dynamics and the manual threshold value, providing processing of the audio signal independently of the sound level and instead in regards to the signal dynamic range.
Pure Compressor 3 is available in both 32- and 64-bits, sample rates up to 384 kHz are supported and processing of up to 8 channels for surround/multichannel work is provided. When operating on a multi-channel bus all channels are processed by default, but the processing can be disengaged for any number of channels leaving the material unprocessed and bypassing the original sound. By doing this in combination with serial instances the material on any number of channels can be processed with individual settings.
