Dynamics

In this section you will find some plugins I created mostly as examples for the Delphi ASIO & VST open source project. Have a look at the source code or contribute to the project and modify all the plugins.
This sub-section features some of the dynamic processor plugins I created. The order is more or less alphabetic.


Lightweight Soft Knee Compressor

fastcompressor
A soft knee compressor optimized for low CPU usage.
While it is not that difficult to build a hard knee compressor with a low CPU usage, it is quite difficult to do so for a soft knee, especially if you want to control the margin around the treshold precisely while maintaining a consistent curve. The compressor also features a simple limit circuit to avoid clipping.
On a 2 GHz core2 duo I was able to run > 75 instances without a problem.

The same compressor is also available with a feedback topology.

The whole series of lightweight dynamics processors is also available here: [Installer]

Lightweight Dynamics

Lightweight Dynamics
Based on the lightweight series this plugin contains three plugins in one. At first the input signal is processed by a gate, followed by a compressor and last but not least a limiter combined with soft clipping.

Lookahead Limiter

Lookahead Limiter
A peak stop look ahead limiter. It features a smooth attack and an adjustable release curve.

Sidechain Compressor

Sidechain Compressor
This compressor plugin is basically identical to the lightweight series compressor, but with a completely customizable sidechain input. To offer more possibilities any VST plugin can be loaded on the sidechain. This way it is easily possible to change the sidechain in every possible manner.
