Based on V-Plugs "Smart Dynamic Control" technology (SDC), Uranium presents an alternative to classic compressors with a distinctive sound and features.

SDC Technology
The SDC technology uses a sophisticated 'look ahead' algorithm that analyzes the signal level over time. According to this analysis, Uranium applies compression by increasing the quiet parts and attenuating the louder ones simultaneously. This innovative technology enables you to achieve radical dynamic manipulations with a smooth warm sound.

Smart gate and envelope shaping
Uranium features a special smart gate control that enables smooth gating operation, with no 'pumping' artifacts. The compression and gating operations are linked; so unlike standard gates, only the compressed signal will be affected. This way the gate operates as a powerful shaping tool for the compressor operation; that can be used for extra dynamic treatment, envelope and 'tail' shaping, or for the elimination of unwanted low-level noises.

Better monitoring
Uranium's monitoring screen enables you to compare the original signal with the compressed signal, to see how much gain reduction is being applied, and to have precise information about your signal dynamics at any point.

Key Features:

  • Unique modern compression sound.
  • Based on V-Plugs SDC Technology.
  • Content dependant compression.
  • Radical compression effects.
  • Smart gate for the compressed signal.
  • MS compression for mastering and stereo sources.
  • Standard and parallel compression.
  • Advanced monitoring.
  • Stereo link in percentage.
  • Support for sampling rates of up to 192 kHz-Very efficient processing, optimized for native processors.

I just recently discovered this tool. I thought I had a fairly strong grasp on what was exceptional in the land of VST compressors (Vertigo VSC-2, IK Fairchild, Waves API, Cytomic 'the Glue), what was decent (PSP Oldtimer, Waves CL collection), what was interesting (Mellowmuse CP2V, Abbey Chandler EMI limiter) and what was...um, not my favorite (some others - I don't need to bash on). I found Uranium to be both 'exceptional' and 'interesting'. It immediately made its way onto to two bass guitar parts for 2 songs. The parts both sounded mushy in the mix and I was trying to find a compressor which could bring the articulation as well as some punch to the attack of every 8th note played. My $200 UA and Vertigo compressors weren't doing it. When solo'd it seemed articulate enough but in the mix the bass seemed mushy in the low end. Uranium out performed all of 'em in this regard. It controlled the dynamics tightly and gave my tracks better propulsive rhythm which I wanted to hear in the song. Nice work for a plug-in under $100 - it seems this guy was coded by some cracker box style 'diy' software - in fact I've read a few who've turned their noses up at it because of that fact - huh, their loss, my secret!
