TheZhe has released TheExpressor, a free colored upwards/downwards expander/compressor effect plugin for Windows and macOS.
The key features of the plugin are:
- Color – change slightly to soften the knee or boost/cut up to 24 dB for extreme emphasis.
- Zero delay and low distortion artifacts thanks to some clever detector anti-aliasing tricks.
- Bounded. Output is never more than 6 dB louder than the input signal; the minimum required Makeup gain is -6 dB.
In addition, every TheZhe plugin includes optimized built-in anti-aliasing and draws modulation-friendly knobs with solid lines.
TheExpressor is a virtual effect plugin for VST3/AU compatible hosts on 64-bit Windows/Mac (M1 Apple Silicon supported).
The plugin is free, but if you find it useful and/or you want to support the developer, you can make a donation on the product page.
