Producer/mixer/engineer Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, Blessthefall, We Came As Romans, Of Mice & Men) has released Gain Reduction, a compressor plug-in that "puts Joey's signature vocal production sound in the hands of the masses".
Gain Reduction is a vocal compressor plug-in intended for vocalists, musicians, engineers, mixers, and all audio production people alike. This compressor aims to instantly give you mix-ready sounding vocals with little to no effort. Turn the knobs to tame or tighten your sound. Crank the gain to saturate and distort. Gain Reduction makes it possible to capture the in-your-face vocal tone Joey has become known for.
Joey Sturgis says: "When I sat down to design this plugin, I wanted to create something simple and effective that not only serves as a work horse in the mixing environment but also provides a creative mixing experience for the mixing engineer. I also wanted to create a useful tool for musicians and vocalists who would like to spend more time on performance and less time on mixing. My aim was to create a vocal sound unmatched by similar plugins on the market while providing the "in-your-face" sound that you'd expect from one of my vocal mixes. I feel that I have not only achieved these goals but also opened the door way to a new world of vocal dynamics that many may be afraid to explore. Fear no more, let your vocals stand out. Let your voice be heard."
