Peakbuster is an attack-phase boosting, reduction, and harmonic enhancement plugin for professional music and sound production applications. Peakbuster is a multi-band transient enhancer effect plug-in that uses an advanced automatic algorithm. Peakbuster stands from the competition in its ability to always sound natural, even on a full-spectrum master bus. The strength of the effect depends on the material being processed: the algorithm masterfully analyses dynamics of the sound it processes, and applies boosting or cutting in quantities that are “exactly right”. Moreover, the algorithm has a suitably “fast” reaction time making its adjustments sound “fluid”, not “all over the place”.
The amount of effect can be chosen independently for the lower and higher frequency ranges: this permits the use of Peakbuster on a variety of program material, both full mixes and individual tracks.
Additionally, due to the nature of the algorithm’s design, Peakbuster applies a unique harmonic coloration or enhancement: so, even if the gain adjustment meter shows only a minimal gain adjustment amount at a given time, the plug-in still transforms the sound being processed in a way that to some engineers may sound “on a completely another level”; we at Voxengo would call it “beyond tube warmness”.
Beside transient boosting, Peakbuster also features the “FX1” mode which works as a “spectral compressor” effect that performs a unique transformation useful on individual tracks like bass and vocals, it makes them “stand out”. The “M3” mode offers you a transient reduction mode which works as a very transparent “deharsher” and “polisher” effect.
