The Pure Compressor II from Flux is a VST 2.4, RTAS, and AU format compatible compressor plug-in that can range in operation from clean and subtle to a heavy and pumping style compression. It features a variety of in-depth controls including external side chain inputs for side-chained compression, a wet/dry control that allows you to create parallel processing, and a mid/side width control that allows you to dictate the stereo width of the processing. You additionally have control over the processor's time envelope. Your tracks dynamics can be detected in a variety of modes, including Flux's Solera mode, creating different sonic results.
An integrated VU meter can display a variety of level information including input, output, dynamic processing, summing, and more. The Pure Compressor II can handle up to 8 channels of audio, making it compatible for 7.1 surround sound mixing.
Please note: The RTAS version of this plug-in requires Pro Tools version 8 or later. An iLok is required for this product's license.
Signal Processing Features
Input/Output gain controls for adjusting the levels before and after processing
Phase invert of the processed signal
Dry Mix control (Dry/Wet with gain compensation) allowing for parallel processing or for blending some of the original "peak" into the processed signal
Clipper, a discrete peak limiter at the very last stage of the processing chain rounding off the peaks smooth and musically
Bypass routes the incoming signal direct to the output for a true smooth transition between processed and clean signal
Preset and Parameter Handling
To enhance the workflow the two Preset/Parameter slots, A and B, can be loaded with two full set of parameters at the same time. Apart from saving each preset, a "Global Preset" containing both the A and B settings, and the position of the "Morphing Slider," can be saved
Parameter Morphing Slider with Automation:
The Morphing Slider provides morphing between the parameter settings of slot A/B allowing for really creative and useful real-time tweaking. Enabling the Automation control button exposes the Morphing Slider to the host automation
