HoRNet Multicomp Plus MK2 is a high quality and versatile plugin compressor. It features five compressor models (VCA, OPTO, FET, Console4K and VCA160) and an expander (based on the VCA model), it is perfect for every mixing need providing five classic compression algorithms, from the dry VCA to the very fat FET model and including two new models (Console4K and VCA160) based on timeless VCA designs.
If you need analog warmth Multicomp Plus MK2 provides a different emulation for every model and you can also adjust the intensity of the saturation. The analog emulation is the same as the one found in AnalogStage and includes an input transformer model too. If you don't like the hiss that comes with analog you can turn it off.
The internal makeup gain algorithm and the auto input and output gain adjustment let you change from one model to another without being fooled by loudness change.
Each model can be fed with an external side-chain, and the side-chain has two filters, a high pass and a low pass, both filters are full range, working from 20 to 20000Hz.
HoRNet Multicomp Plus MK2 features the standard attack, release, ratio and threshold controls together with a waveform display with both input and output signal so that is easy to monitor the processing that is taking place, also a visual representation of the gain reduction is provided.
Like every other HoRNet dynamics processor Multicomp Plus MK2 has a "RealGR" gain reduction meter. The meter moves at the speed of audio so you can "see" how fast the gain reduction is being applied, but the meter also has a peak hold function so that the maximum reduction applied in the last 3 seconds is always in front of you.
High quality processing is guaranteed by 2 or 4 times oversampling that drastically reduces the amount of aliasing distortion generated by the compression algorithm, a new "auto" option is provided that will always guarantee the best oversampling option for the model you have chosen.
A handy dry / wet knob allows you to create parallel compression with ease, the level of the wet signal is kept at the right spot by the adaptive make up gain algorithm.
To speed up you compression task and let you choose the best model for the task more effectively Multicomp Plus MK2 provides an auto threshold function that adjusts the threshold knob automatically to reach the desired gain reduction amount.
