M4 Multiband Compressor (VST & AU)
Take control of your mix with M4! The new multiband compressor by Cut Through Recordings
M4 is a Multiband Compressor that gives you complete control over your mix. The 3 crossovers for the bands can be dialed in to give you precise control over the frequency range. Each band features it’s own compressor with knobs and sliders to control threshold, attack, release, ratio, and gain. The compressors by default use an automatic gain correction algorithm, and this gain correction can be globally enabled/disabled. Each band is represented by a unique meter design that plots input level vs. output level, which can also be seen as the amount of gain reduction.
M4 is designed to handle anything from subtle peak control to bus compression, and even mastering. This powerful multiband compressor should feel at home in any producer’s arsenal. If you don’t believe us, check out the sound examples. Or better yet, download the demo and give it a try!
- Complete control over each frequency band
- Threshold, Attack, Release, Ratio, and Gain controls
- Ability to solo each frequency band to hone in the perfect amount of compression
- Automatic gain correction
- Low CPU usage
Along with these controls there is also a global switch to disable the automatic gain correction which is applied based on each compressors’ threshold value.
Metering in M4 is a little different than most compressors. M4 shows gain reduction by displaying the Input level and Output level and Gain Reduction all in one meter. The Input level is represented by the top of the meter, If gain reduction is applied then part of the meter will be darkened. This bottom of the darkened region represents the output level for that band.
M4 is available for Windows(32bit & 64bit VST) Mac OS X(32bit and 64bit VST/AU) and Linux(64bit VST only). (opens in a new window)
