CT5 provides clean and smooth gain reduction, with a little punch. It is designed to have both electro-optical and vari-mu characteristics. Users have noted that the CT5 is very good at preserving the "air" of the source material.
CT5 offers two distinct compression curves for either a more transparent or more aggressive character. The blend knob allows you to mix in the dry signal for "parallel compression" techniques.
The plugin can also accept a sidechain input for customized shaping of the compressor's response.
