platinumears releases 5ORCERY - "Meta-Multi-Band" Compressor

platinumears has released 5ORCERY, a free VST effect plug-in for Windows that is described as a "meta-multi-band" compressor using dynamic EQ.

5orcery.png 5ORCERY takes a different approach to multi-band compression: the signal is still split into separate bands using cross-over filters, and these still feed the side-chains of separate compressors, but the filtered signals are not mixed back together again. Instead the gain modulation signals from all five compressors are matrixed into modulation signals for 4 dynamic shelving filters plus a gain stage.

To put it another way: while this plug-in behaves like a multi-band compressor, and allows you to solve many of the same problems, it is in actual fact a constantly changing 4-band equaliser, and when it isn't doing anything, it really isn't doing anything.

platinumears has dubbed this approach "meta-multiband compression": all the benefits of a multi-band with none of the usual side effects. Use it wherever you like, on channels, sub-groups or mixes.

Features:

  • Transparent and easy to use multi-band compression.
  • Dynamic EQ topology to reduce phase artifacts.
  • Five FL4TT3RY 2 compressors, with band-limited side-chains.
  • External side-chain inputs (switchable per band).
  • Intuitive "solo in place" function for each band.
  • Optional soft clipping keeps your peaks below 0dBFS.
  • Flexible Gain / Gain Reduction meters with switchable range.
  • Zero latency.
