dNa-MS*Comp

The dNa-MS*Comp is a unique M/S compressor;
This compressor which can compress the M or S component from a stereo source BUT...can also compress the M-signal reacting to the S-signal or vice versa.

Highlights:

• Remote controllable with midi
• New / Old style circuit topology
• MS processing; a specialized mastering technique.
• Works in RMS mode (more musical compression).
• Analog drive / Coloration
• Smart sidechain filtering
• 96kHz capable

Features:

  • Width: Integrated Phase-coherent stereo-widening. (MS-technique, mono-compatible)
  • FF/FB: New or Modern Feed-forward or Old/Classic Feed-back topology as used in renowned analog processors. (FB only in M / S Comp Mode)
  • SC Filter: smart sidechain filtering for enhanced and more musical compression.
  • 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 and Ratio values, Variable Release
  • DynamicDSP: dynamic distribution of DSP power and functions which are not used are not loaded onto DSP’s for highly efficient 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-MS*Comp will use roughly between 485 ~ 885 DSP cycles depending on settings on the old 60Mhz SHARC (older CW cards). (Max around 90% of one 60Mhz SHARC)

Version history/Change log:

-v1.0: Release, part of the dNa Mastering Pack with the dNa-Stereo Equaliser and dNa-MasterCOMP.
-v1.5: Added tooltips; added saving of assigned midiCC
-v1.55: Enhanced GUI
-v2.0: GUI-rework and added Midi CC manager, saves midi assignments with preset
