TRACKCOMP

COMPRESSION : PAST & FUTURE

DMGAudio TrackComp

Mix Compression. Sorted.

Five Compressors spanning the history of pro-audio.

Filthy and distorted to invisible and clean; tubes, optos, FETs, transistors and VCAs.

The tool you need for every session. Have a listen: download the demo.

Features

  • Realtime SPICE simulation of hardware units
  • Classic channel VCA, bus VCA, FET, Opto and Digital compression
  • Common hardware mods like Sidechain filter and Response
  • Zero-latency
  • Quick, simple, ergonomic interface
  • Windows VST, VST3 and AAX as 32+64bit, RTAS 32bit
  • Mac VST, VST3, AU and AAX as 32+64bit, RTAS 32bit

Sound

  • Authentic end-to-end models with distortion and all

Specifically not supported (might work, but I can't test/support these platforms): Windows 95/98, OS X 10.0,10.1,10.2,10.3,10.4

1.01 -> 1.02

  • Fix GR metering in mono instances
  • Fix "manual" sidechain listen mode
  • Fix very obscure crash loading in Logic X
  • Make slider behaviour smoother
  • Remove spurious DC bias in 76D mode (resolves issues with excessive distortion)
  • Report correct version number in Cubase VST2
  • Fix ProTools crash when selecting Ext sidechain but none is routed
  • Jumpstart resource loading to prevent weirdness in ProTools
  • Alt-mousewheel on snap-to sliders will cycle through values.
  • Extend E-Channel release time, and mark hardware ranges.
  • Flatten low-end response for 76D (assume higher input impedance on interface)
  • Jumpstart 2A GR to minimise pops when switching models
  • Manual edits
  • Improve 2A attack behaviour
  • Support VST3 GR meter in Studio One

1.00 -> 1.01

  • Add Q-Bias to 76 to allow calibrating aggression!
  • Rework 76 to avoid breakup
  • Rework 76 to implement proper hardware stereo linkage (prevents distortion on wide signals)
  • Prevent DC noise when adjusting 76 threshold
  • Fix issue with 2A compression
  • Fix linked GR metering
  • Added Sidechain filter for E-Channel
  • Fix vertical alignment of some text labels
  • Q-Bias/2A text in manual
  • Keep UI working when automating to empty Model settings
  • Redraw the red bars OVER the sliders
  • Stop grabbing keys in Logic X
  • Fix recall of A/B bank as displayed on UI
  • Persist GR zoom across UI open/close

TrackComp

TrackComp is a compressor designed for musicians, producers and mix engineers.

It has comparatively low CPU usage, zero latency, a streamlined workflow and features a collection of analogue and digital compressors.

The units included are:

  • DMG (Digital compressor)
  • E-channel (British console channel compressor)
  • G-bus (British console bus compressor)
  • 76D (Revision D FET compressor)
  • 2A (1960s valve and opto compressor)

The phrase "SPICE simulation" commonly refers to using physics to predict the behaviour of a circuit, using a particular mathematical strategy. It is a method for circuit simulation that forms the foundation of the tools that electronic engineers use for design.

Our approach has been to optimise SPICE for real-time usage; typically a simulation takes between ten and a hundred times as long to execute as the audio it is processing. We are very proud to have optimised implementations that typically run at <1% CPU core usage on modern processors.

Typically hardware modelling relies on the expertise of the designer to match the unit. SPICE instead creates a mathematical description of the unit from the circuitry itself, yielding a result as accurate as physics. This means we can capture all behaviours of the hardware.

In cases where the hardware had stepped controls, we have implemented these exactly, but in some cases also allow you to pick between switch settings to increase functionality.
