In this week's Friday Free Plug-in, we are featuring Quad Comp From T-RackS. A four band multiband compressor but hurry, this offer is only open until February 14th 2019.
What is Quad Comp?
Quad Comp is a multi-band processor that incorporates up to four fully featured optical compressors, each operating on a separate, user-definable frequency band. Each compressor has a full set of controls that enables users to achieve desired results by tailoring the compression on the band it's applied to.
The flexibility of this processor is also augmented by the selectable slope of the filters, from 6 dB/Oct to 24 dB/Oct. Quad Comp is typically used on the stereo master bus of a mix to even out frequencies in selected spots of the program, but it's also very useful on single tracks where frequency content can vary drastically over time, like vocals or bass.
