Features:

  • FF/FB/Ext: New/Modern Feed-forward or Old/Classic Feed-back topology as used in renowned analog processors PLUS External Sidechaining using our filters!!
  • SC Filter: smart sidechain filtering for enhanced and more musical compression. This MonoCOMP also has a de-essing filter (DS) which can be used to remove excessive sibilance from your source (S-sounds from vocals for example, hence the name de-essing)
  • Analog Modus: This gives the signal analogue modeled distortion/coloration which can add excitement to any signal. You can also drive the circuits more with this feature enabled. With this feature enabled the compressor will act as a BRICKWALL-LIMITER as well!
  • Easy setting: preset Attack, Release (also variable-option) and Ratio values
  • DynamicDSP: dynamic distribution of DSP power and functions which are not used are not loaded onto DSP’s for highly efficiënt DSP usage.
  • Phase Alignment Technology; the processed and unprocessed signal stay in phase in other words the bypassed plugin has the same sample-accurate latency as non-bypassed.
  • Remote controllable through MIDI: Control the parameters for example with an external midi-controller.
  • Automation of parameters through MIDI: When you custom assign the device parameters to midi-CC signals(just right click on a parameter), the device sends out MIDI signals which you can "record" in you sequencer, thus you can automate the device.
  • VU metering, PPM LED metering AND clip-LED for fast transients.
  • Large GUI with “analogue-style” big knobs and big meters (also more precise LED-meters), because big knobs just sound better, haha ;-)
  • Saves in screensets
  • Compatible with Scope software 5x and 4x
  • Compatible with all Scope hardware, PCI cards and Xite
  • 96kHz capable

DSP-Usage

The dNa-MonoCOMP will use roughly between 350 ~ 630 DSP cycles depending on settings on the old 60Mhz SHARC (older CW cards). (Max around 60% of one 60Mhz SHARC)
