The APU Loudness Compressor plug-in is a compressor/expander designed to support modern loudness types (LUFS, True Peak). Typical compressors operate using only RMS and/or Peak units of measurement. But technology has come a long way since then and we're overdue for an upgrade..

This compressor uses modern industry standard LUFS units of measurement to provide a far more transparent response which is connected to the way humans actually experience loudness. The entire signal flow of the compressor operates within this more precise understanding of loudness.

The plug-in user interface provides a more flexible alternative to traditional threshold-and-ratio style of compressor controls. Instead, source and target ranges of loudness can be configured and the compressor will either compress or expand as needed.

With learn mode enabled, the compressor will automatically adjust the source or target range to match the source material. This can be a great way to get started with the compressor and can be used as a starting point for further fine-tuning.

For more details about the compressor's various features and example uses, see the docs site.

APU Loudness Compressor
Reviewed By garfield78

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?
