DC1A Free Compressor Plugin

DC1A Free Compressor Plugin

DC1A free compressor plugin is the little brother of the compression monster DC8C by Klanghelm.

They’ve taken a few of their favorite settings from DC8C and tried to make it work in a two control context. Sound-wise it’s comparable to the PUNCH mode in DC8C but offers a few additional features, such as negative ratio and stereo unlink.

DC1A is a simple and effective compressor with just an input and output knob. It is a compressor that just works: gentle, faithful, from almost invisible, smooth leveling to heavy pumping with nice crunchy saturation and punchy enough to treat drums with.

DC1A looks like a one-trick pony. But don’t get fooled by the lack of additional controls. You may be surprised at how many different materials this little thing works. DC1A has a few tricks up its sleeve: negative (over) compression, parallel (New York style) compression, option to compress left and right channel independently (via the DUAL MONO switch), peak and RMS compression (RELAXED switch on) and DEEP activates a high pass filter to reduce pumping on bass-heavy material
