What is it?
The NYCompressor is the ideal workhorse when it comes to dynamics management in a mix. From gentle compression for glueing your mix together to heavy drum compression for the ultimate punch: NYCompressor can do it all. Features:
– Ratio up to 1:10.
– Key signal filtering.
– True sidechaining (4 inputs).
– Hard/soft knee.
– Parallel (New York) compression.
– Independent L/R or Mid/Side compression.
NYCompressor will transform your music from “weak sounding” to “powerful and exciting” with just a few knob turns… Available in Windows VST (32/64 bit), Windows/Mac RTAS and Mac VST/AU format (Intel, OSX 10.5 and higher).
It’s not only the best compressor among the cheap and free ones, it’s also better than a lot of expensive ones. […] NY doesn’t loose low frequencies. Super!

Hell yes! I just bought this thing yesterday and I’m already in love! This thing just might be my favourite track compressor that I’ve ever used. I don’t know what it is but all the controls just plain work and it is easy to dial in a sound with your ears.
