  • adjustable saturation levels, or opt for a clean, transparent signal.

Then, Optocomp is a vintage-inspired compressor for M4L à la LA-2A with a distinct warm character and based on a feedback design. According to the developer, it’s easy to setup. Just push the input to get more compression and makeup with the output gain.

It offers: 

  • vintage tone: emulates renowned optical compressors.
  • analog output stage: capture the magic of transformer and tube saturation.
  • flexible controls: high-pass sidechain, channel summing for stereo operation, and blend dial for parallel compression.
