The Flux Pure DCompressor II Plug-in is a full range software de-compressor that you can use to restore lost dynamics in your sound. It enables you to take a heavily compressed signal and convert it to a more natural sounding signal.
The software has input and output gain controls for adjusting levels before and after the signal processing. You can invert the phase of the processed signal and use the dry mix control to blend the original signal into the processed signal for parallel processing. A discrete peak limiter setting rounds off and smoothes out the peaks in audio that would otherwise clip. You can also bypass the de-compressor to observe a clean transition between the clean and processed signals. It features VU metering of parameters such as input, output, level difference, dynamic process summing, and the instant release value. You can control the attack and release the processing time envelope and set the dynamic profile for how the signal is detected. For the de-compression processing, you have dynamic controls over threshold, ratio, range, knee, Peak/RMS, Angel's Share ratio, and the Hysteresis threshold.
The Angel's Share ratio control uses a proprietary algorithim to open up the sound and increase the dynamic impression while retaining some of the crest of the waveform. It blends the influence of the signal detection schemes depending upon the complexity of the signal. The Hysteresis threshold uses a proprietary algorithm to enable compression and de-compression independent of the sound level and can be mixed with the regular compression scheme.
Additional features to the software include external side chain inputs, MS width control for managing stereo signals, a hold parameter, and new dynamic detection algorithms such as classic mode, feedback mode, and maximum mode for tracking the signal.
To improve workflow, the plug-in features two preset slots, A and B, that can be loaded simultaneously with a set of parameters and morphed between using a slider. A global preset of both slots and the position of the morphing slider can also be saved.
