de la Mancha has re-released as freeware GTA, a vintage style ‘character’ compressor, designed like its muscle car name-sake for brute power, pure speed and to make a loud noise.

It is stripped down for ease of use and has a unique vintage colouring on top.

GTA is a peak compressor featuring super-fast attack and release times and has a wide range of threshold, ratio and output boost as well as a wet/dry mix for NY compression. The metering covers input, output and gain reduction, showing both real-time and peak levels.


  • Vintage style Peak compressor with parallel compression and comprehensive metering
  • Subtle colouring from a home-made blend of harmonics, saturation and dynamic noise
  • Ultra-fast attack and release times
  • Wet/Dry mix control allows phase-free blending of dry uncompressed signal for NY style parallel compression
  • Distortion reduction for very short release times
  • Metering covers stereo input, output and gain reduction. All meters show actual and peak levels
  • Adjustable peak meter hold time
  • Non-linear knobs for precise control at small values

GTA is available at no cost.
