Voxengo Deft Compressor 1.8 track and bus compressor plugin released - Press Release
July 18, 2019: Voxengo Deft Compressor version 1.8 update is now available for download. Voxengo Deft Compressor is an audio track and bus compressor plugin for professional audio production applications, available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST and VST3 plugin formats, for macOS and Windows computers.
Version 1.8 includes the following changes:
- Fixed a crash in Ableton 9.
- Added Retina support on macOS, and automatic high-resolution UI size adjustment on Windows.
- Up to 20% lower CPU usage on AVX2-capable processors.
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 on both attack and release stages.
The S-curve timing function means that the attack and release stages “look” like S-curve (sigmoid curve). Such curve sonically adds a very warm coloration, without sharp edge. Beside that, S-curve on longer release times possesses a bit of “hold” time delay where it does not change. This allows the compressor to have clean, almost uncolored higher frequencies.

- Adjustable S-curve timing function
- “Vintage” compression mode
- Feedback compression mode
- Auto make-up gain
