The 409 Opto Compressor is a powerful and versatile plug-in equipped with an optimized dynamic response. It is based on the design and principles of analog Opto Compressors.
Characterized by its natural and musical gain reduction, the 409 provides gentle, clear compression to a heavy deep-cutting restraint suitable for a very wide range of use.
Like its predecessor the 925 Compressor, the 409 Opto Compressor is developed using physical modelling principles recreating classic compression characteristics, with a host of extra controls and features.
The main controls enable an easy and precise tuning of the compression, with the “attack” and “release” controls ranging as far up as 200ms and 787ms respectively.
The presets included with the 409 Opto Compressor come with default values, however the “Ratio” control button is adjusted by a continuous adjustable dial. This allows a more accurate, flexible and ‘tunable’ setting of the compression slope.
