The XT-MC Multi-Band Compressor is equipped to enhance or repair tracks in your mix. It uses a precision algorithm with phase-correct crossovers, adjustable hard/soft control, and intelligent attack/release times to perform delicate tweaking or major surgery without artifacts.
The Xtools Multi-Band Compressor features quick-select presets to help you get started. The numbered controls in the lower section allow you to adjust the frequency and depth. The numbered controls in the top section control the relative thresholds for the different bands. You can, for example, trigger the gain reduction earlier on the midrange band when compressing a sibilant vocalist. The Low Frequency trim can be used as a modest shelf to reduce the low end on spoken word after compression. It also allows you to recover any energy lost when compressing the bass of a mix. This provides a huge low end for dance tracks.
