Marquis Compressor is a "universal" compressor AAX, AU, and VST plugin. You'll find a smooth compression performance, coupled with a harmonically-rich sound, both suitable for mixing and mastering. Being "universal" this compressor can be used on a wide range of sound material: individual tracks, stems and mixes, producing "clean" or "colored" sound.

Marquis Compressor plugin was built around a tube triode-modeled amplifier cascade. At low Drive settings this cascade produces a mild harmonic coloration while at higher Drive settings you can get a brutal tube saturation which works great for drums, bass, and vocals. At moderate Drive settings this cascade can add a pleasant grit to the mix.

Marquis Compressor features a unique "round" signal level detection algorithm, which creates an open, punchy, compressed, sound with an impressive transient response. Beside this, Marquis Compressor offers a classic feedback (opto) compression mode switchable to a more common feed-forward compression.

Marquis Compressor carries 3 distinctive compression algorithms, one of them (T3) being modeled after a classic analog compressor. The Gate algorithm is also available which is handy at reducing drum bleed in drum tracks.

Marquis Compressor features:

  • 3 compressor modes.
  • 3 amplifier modes.
  • Feedback compression mode.
  • Auto make-up gain.
  • Gate/downward expander mode.
  • External side-chaining.
  • Key signal filtering.
  • Stereo and multi-channel processing.
  • Internal channel routing.
  • Channel grouping.
  • Up to 8x oversampling.
  • 64-bit floating point processing.
  • Preset manager.
  • Undo/redo history.
  • A/B comparisons.
  • Contextual hint messages.
  • All sample rates support.
  • Zero processing latency.

Reviewed By rgonzale [all]

Version reviewed: 1.4 on Windows

I just bought Marquis Compressor after trying out the demo version last night (same as the full version but with periodic beeps). I compared it with Kjaerhus Gold Compressor and some freeware ones I had around.

The main attraction for me was the clever metering system which simultaneously shows peak and several average levels to give a visual picture of the input, output, and compression levels. Other visual cues are the knee-shape display and program-dependent release contour.

But what surprised me was the sound! With the same threshold/ratio/attack/release setting and the same knee shape, Marquis sounded much better on a vocal track than the Kjaerhus compressor. The latter emphasized sibilance and "F" sounds in an intrusive way. In fairness, this was the only comparison I made, and perhaps there are other parameters in the Kjaerhus compressor to deal with this.

Last but not least, check out the "Key Filtering" feature. This again is a great visual interface to a side-chain-like capability. For example you can get a very good de-ess effect by dragging up the EQ band around 8 kHz, so that this band has a greater weight when triggering compression.
