As a descendant of the TDR Feedback Compressor product family, Kotelnikov has directly inherited several unique features such as a proven control scheme, individual release control for peak and RMS content, a user interface designed to be intuitive, and powerful, state of the art, high-precision algorithms.
With a sonic signature best described as "stealthy", Kotelnikov has the ability to manipulate the dynamic range by dramatic amounts, while carefully preserving the original tone, timbre and punch of a musical signal.
The Gentleman's Edition (Kotelnikov GE) adds several improvements to the standard edition's feature set, including access to various equal loudness workflows, the ability to specify ratio in a frequency dependent manner, as well as a sidechain high-pass filter that allows continuously variable access over slope and frequency. The Yin/Yang functions allow manipulating the harmonic pattern produced during compression, and a new "insane" quality mode increases processing fidelity even further.
- 64-bit floating point precision for all relevant calculations.
- Multi-rate processing structure for highest accuracy.
- "Delta" oversampled signal path (bit transparent at 0dB gain reduction).
- Super fast, yet natural sounding compression.
- Control scheme based on "Crest factor", offering independent release controls for peak and RMS events.
- Frequency dependent ratio.
- Flexible sidechain highpass filter offering continuously variable control over slope and frequency.
- Support for equal loudness workflows.
- Advanced stereo linking options optimized for the stereo bus.
- Delta preview mode to preview the difference between compressed and original signal.
- Equal loudness latency compensated bypass (processing doesn't interrupt).
- Extensive documentation.
Price: The standard edition is available for free, the improved Gentleman's Edition can be purchased for € 40 directly from Tokyo Dawn Records.
