From subtle warmth to extreme drive and compression, PUNISH injects character and edge into any mix or instrument track. It's the same PUNISH effect that you know and love, as featured in Heavyocity's award-winning line of virtual instruments, now in VST/AU/AAX plugin format. Modeled after Heavyocity's custom analog signal chains, PUNISH gives you control over Compression, Saturation, Transients, EQ, and Limiting. Chain the modules together to get that signature PUNISH sound, or isolate them to experience each dynamic effect on its own.
And at the heart of it all is the global PUNISH Knob. Simply set your ranges, and use the one knob to dial in the devastation.
Compression / Saturation
With three distinct compression models, the PUNISH Compressor offers a wide dynamic range, topped off with that classic analog warmth. The plugin features a smooth Class A-style Buss Compressor (Console), an aggressive, fat sound with a classic "knee" (Modern), and a warm vintage limiting amplifier-style (Classic).
The PUNISH Saturation module also features three different models, all with their own unique brand of warmth, drive, and character. With a classic broadcast mic-pre (Vintage), a chunky harmonic saturation (Modern), and a fat tube saturation (Tube), the PUNISH Saturation module can add a bit of grit to a track, or drive the whole thing into overload.
Transients / EQ / Limiting
Providing control over the attack, sustain, and output gain, PUNISH's Transient shaping module brings stronger transients back into the signal after saturating the sound. The module also features Hold control to determine length of the attack.
The EQ module is basic but powerful, offering lift of the high and low frequencies. Set the EQ to Pre or Post to affect highs and lows before the Comp, Sat, and Transient...or after.
To prevent clipping, PUNISH also features a Limiter at the end of the chain. Soft clip amount and release time controls are key, when that Saturation starts to get things truly hairy.
