TDR Audio has announced the release of Molotok, a free compressor effect plugin for Windows and macOS.
Meaning “Small Hammer” in Russian, Molotok puts a rich range of compression colors at the operator’s fingertips. It shares its algorithms with TDR Molot GE (commercial plugin) but offers a simplified user interface ideal for fast and intuitive use.
While Molotok doesn’t emulate any “vintage” device, its sound and behavior were definitely inspired by their most interesting musical peculiarities. This flexibility makes it a rewarding choice for almost any source in the mix, be it drums needing more crisp and impact, solidification and enrichment of vocals, or the enhancement of guitar and bass recordings of all types.
Molotok relies on the same algorithms as its larger edition, Molot GE. As with all TDR plugins, Molotok employs state of the art audio processing technology keeping unwanted distortion under strict control. An intuitive and well-documented user interface offers quick access to all relevant parameters in a rewarding manner. Several helpers such as unlimited undo/redo, optional stepped controls, inline help tips, and many more features help the operator achieve consistent results within a short time.
Molotok free compressor plugin is available in VST2/VST3/AAX (Windows) and VST2/VST3/AU/AAX (macOS) formats.
