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 32 and 64 bit VST, VST3, AU and AAX format (on Mac, OSX 10.7 or higher is required).
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.
