Powerful, easy-to-use and ultra-transparent VCA compressor with Sibilance Boost control, True Stereo Dual Detector, Smart Dyn Dual Slope Detection and Auto Attack/Release.
As with most products by Dangerous Music, the Dangerous Compressor offers a truly transparent operation with virtually no distortion even with -20dB of gain reduction. This is achieved through the use of a high-quality distortion-free VCA. A true Dual detector is also employed instead of the usual one detector used in linking operation, avoiding the narrowing of the stereo image experienced with many compressors. As a result, the Dangerous Compressor is ideal for mastering application or as a transparent vocal compressor.
In addition to its great sound, the Compressor is extremely powerful and laden with features such as its flexible side-chain circuitry offering a Bass cut control and Sibilance. The former is ideal to avoid unnecessary triggering from low frequencies. A Sibilance Boost is also included which will control the excess sibilance and shrill sound without any post-compression hangover.
