Compressor Plugin, modeled after an iconic Hardware Compressor
10dB Compressor is the first of it’s kind channel strip plugin. This plugin is modelled after a very highly sought after compressor hardware unit. Boz didn’t just use the hardware unit for inspiration, they dug in deep and made sure that it sounded just like the original.
Why did BOZ Digital model this unit?
Here’s the deal. It seems like everybody is modelling hardware these days, but they wanted to do something a little different. BOZ didn’t want to model any hardware units that have been done a million times. They wanted to do something that had never been done before but has been an icon in the recording industry, and the only way to do that was to team up with producer/mixer David Bendeth. He just happened to have a few of these in his rack, so he sent them one to pour over.
Unless you stopped listening to music after “Johnny B Goode” then you have most definitely heard this hardware unit many many times. Think of Led Zeppelin drums.
In order to get this same compressor in hardware, not only would you have to pay over $2,000 to get one, but you’d have to deal with all the other drawbacks of using analog hardware. For a very small fraction of the price, you can get that same sound in the much more convenient software format.
A few extra features
Since BOZ weren’t bound by the limits of the analog hardware, they took the liberty of adding a couple features that make this even more powerful than the original hardware. For one, they added a “Dry Passthrough” knob that makes parallel compression super easy, without having to set up extra buses.
