FASoft Compressor is a Compressor/Expander/Noise gate DirectX plug-in that works on mono and stereo audio data from within audio applications that support the DirectX plug-in architecture. Using this plug-in you can "shape" the sound of wave files attenuating loud parts while boosting quieter ones, enhancing the sound of the recordings of your instruments or vocals. The Plug-In allows to define a custom dynamics graph, so even complex dynamics processing can be obtained with a few clicks of the mouse. Smooth transitions ("Soft knees") between regions (i.e. the beginning of the compression region or the "closing" of the noise gate) can be easily designed adding a few nodes to sweeten the knee of graphs. The plug-in can use separate settings for the left and right channels of stereo files and process each channel independently . It supports both 16 bit and 24 bit processing, and uses internal 64 bit precision for optimum sound quality and performance. Being a DirectX plug-in it can be used from inside many audio applications, such as FASoft's n-Track Studio, Sonic Foundry's Sound Forge, Cakewalk, CoolEdit Pro and many others.
