Deft Compressor is an audio signal compressor plug-in for professional audio production applications.  The characteristic feature of this compressor is its ability to produce “slim” and “slick” sounding compression, with intelligibility enhancement effect.  Such result is achieved by compressor’s timing function that closely resembles the S-curve (sigmoid curve) on both attack and release stages.  S-curve timing function also helps compressor to sound “warm” and “clean” at most settings.

While at high attack settings Deft Compressor can be used to emphasize audio transients, it can also be used to “smash” audio signal if you use attack settings as low as 0.01 millisecond.  Even though the S-curve is the marked feature of Deft Compressor, you can smoothly change it to a steeper L-shape by adjusting the “Punch” parameter.

Deft Compressor also features a so called “vintage” compression mode which produces compression sound reminiscent of analog tube compressors: it produces a warm, gently saturated sound with the ability to overdrive the output signal.  Beside that, you may switch between the “feed-forward” and “feedback” compression modes.

Deft Compressor is perfectly usable for compressing vocals, drums, guitars and other instruments, both technically and creatively.  Beside that, it can be used to compress mix groups and full mixes.
