The Big Apple plugin is a feed-forward dynamic range compressor based on the ideal VCA mathematical model. This audio processor allows you to use the parallel compression mixing technique (also known as New York compression) in your everyday work. The parallel compression works inline without any additional routing inside your DAW.

Internal routing


  • Threshold: from 0 dB to -60 dB
  • Ratio: until 20:1 (with the soft knee mode)
  • Make-up gain: until +24 dB
  • Attack range: 1..200 ms
  • Release range: 50..2000 ms (with the auto release mode)
  • Logarithmic VU meters for input, output, dry and wet signals

Need you an example?

In this example the dry sound was mixed with the own aggressive compressed copy inside the plugin.
