PSPaudioware releases PSP Impressor

PSPaudioware

PSPaudioware has announced the release of PSP Impressor, an accurate, fully-featured, high-precision compressor designed to process whole mixes, busses or single tracks.

PSP Impressor, the successor to PSP MixPressor, emulates the magical classic characteristics of compressors with valve and opto-electronic circuits as well as classic modern compressors. PSP Impressor also features a highly configurable side-chain. The side-chain filter has a significant effect on PSP Impressor's sound and operation. Depending on your side-chain filter settings, the filter also lets you use the compressor as a de-esser or to reduce the pumping effects of heavy kick drums and the like.

PSP commented:

PSP Impressor also works very well in combination with the PSP Saturator. With the PSP Impressor before the PSP Saturator in the signal path (think of it like placing a bus compressor before a tape machine), you can employ both plug-ins simultaneously (using subtle settings) in order to impart a very cohesive sound, like your mix was being produced on expensive analog hardware. Of course, you can also reverse the order, placing PSP Saturator before PSP Impressor - never be afraid to experiment.

Features:

  • A wide range of soft knee characteristics.
  • Peak or RMS level detection.
  • External or internal side chain signal with a smooth bell-type filter.
  • An output algorithm which can operate as either a brick wall limiter or soft saturation algorithm to preserve peaks above 0dBFS.

Until March 14th PSP Impressor will be offered at the special introductory price of US$69 (includes sales or VAT taxes). Starting from March 15th PSP Impressor regular price US$99 will be applied (includes sales or VAT taxes). Current users of the PSP MixPack bundle can buy PSP Impressor with an additional 70% discount.
