If you could only have one compressor, which one would it be? In this recent article, sonoteka recommends the new T-RackS Comprexxor from IK Multimedia may be all you need.
Sonoteka is a music production website where you can find breaking news on sounds, samples, audio plug-ins, music software, studio gear and more. In their Comprexxor review, the author creates a whole album using only the Comprexxor to handle all dynamics processing.
Here's some of what he has to say:
"IK Multimedia finally gave us a Distressor Emulation, The T-RackS Comprexxor! I can honestly say this was unexpected, and about damn time. What took you guys so long!?
"I decided to create an album where The Comprexxor was the only compressor being used to control my dynamics and sculpt my sound. What I noticed off the bat was how flexible it was and how much character and tone you could get from the compressor.
The great thing about the Comprexxor is it has its own sound!
"Improving on the original hardware, The Comprexxor offers the same HPF and bandpass sidechain filters, but with adjustable frequencies offering more control.
"Lastly, IK Multimedia's Comprexxor preserves the 'stereo link' feature of the original Distressor unit and adds m/s processing for even more ways to work and sculpt your sound.
"To call the T-RackS Comprexxor a Swiss Army Knife of Compressors is a bit of an understatement."
"All in all, this compressor was a great addition. It's flexible, has lots of nice features and emulation qualities. One might be inclined to say that it's an instrument in itself given the different textures and tones you can get from it."
