Restoring lost dynamics

Pure DCompressor 3 provide the tools needed for restoring the original dynamics of the audio material. The dynamics processing algorithms are designed to automatically increase the peak dynamics, in order to provide full control of the dynamics and revert your signal to a more natural condition, even on an extremely compressed audio material. In addition to the more common dynamics processing controls (ratio, attack, release, etc), Pure DCompressor 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 DCompressor 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.

Features

  • Up to 8 channels input/output
  • Input/output gain controls for adjusting the levels before and after processing
  • Dry Mix control (Dry/Wet with gain compensation) allowing for parallel processing or for blending some of the original "peak" into the processed signal
  • Phase invert of the processed signal
  • Clipper, a discrete peak limiter at the very last stage of the processing chain rounding off the peaks smooth and musically
  • True bypass control routing the incoming signal direct to the output for a smooth transition between clean and processed signal
  • Morphing slider for seamless transition between two explicit full parameter-sets
