The APU Loudness Compressor is a real-time compressor / expander designed to support modern loudness types (LUFS, True Peak). Since LUFS is a more accurate measure of loudness, the result is very transparent compression, making it particularly well suited for mastering and post-production workflows.

The compressor is also capable of operating in a more traditional way, using RMS or Peak units of measurement, so you can have your cake and eat it too.

One of the other features of this compressor is the addition of a "Source Target" mode. In this mode, all loudness measurements inside the source range are compressed or expanded into the target range. In this mode, you don't need to worry as much about whether you're compressing or expanding, you just need to set the source and target ranges to your liking. Compression and expansion are both handled automatically.

Having tested many "levelers" such as drc2, powair, luveler, AL(jelstudio), playlist rider (waves)..., the "loudness compressor" of APU is one of my new favorite plugins, because if it is well regulated, it can be really transparent (smooth), or can be aggressive if necessary. It all depends on the needs. In addition, it is at an introductory price of $19.99, why deprive yourself of it?
