Description: The DC8C is one of the most flexible compressors available. Its result can be characterized as follows: clear, smooth, open, different.
The main design goal for the DC8C was to achieve very clean compressor action without unwanted and almost frequent inevitable artifacts / distortions. This way, almost invisible compression can be achieved for the most demanding mastering sessions.
From opto style, peak compression, external side chain, RMS compression, Feedback, Feedforward compression (and all in between) to negative ratios, zero latency brick-wall limiting, from energetic transient processing to smooth out transient roundings – with DC8C everything is possible.
Klanghelm has updated all of its plugins and announced that they are all now available as AAX Native for Pro Tools 11. The updates also include various bug fixes, stability and performance improvements, reduced latency and less CPU consumption when using oversampling.

DC8C Feature List :
– detector network and gain reduction smoothing for extra smooth operation
– choose between two different attack and two release curves
– three different operational modes: NORMAL, CLEAN (100% clean compression with no intermodulation, no distortion, no aliasing), SMASH (ultrafast compression – – characteristics, almost clipper territory)
– up to 8x oversampling
– side-chain filter with high pass & low pass filter plus tilt control, which let’s you shift the frequency response of the detector
– the saturation stage can be put freely into the signal chain: pre compression, post compression and side-chain only
– different compressor curves selectable
– customize the program dependency of the compressor separately for Attack and Release
– GR-smoothing control to determine, how sensitive the compressor reacts to changes in the computed gain reduction, great to emulate opto style compression
– hold control for heavy pumping compression effects
– pre comp control to delay the start of the attack to leave transients completely alone or radically shape the attack
– calibration control not only to set the reference level for the meters but also for the whole signal path: the higher the value, the softer the compression characteristics and the lower the saturation amount
– unique Feedback-Mix-Control, which lets you determine, how much of the compressor’s output is fed back into the detector. This way it is possible to morph between Feedback and Feedforward Compression topologies
– zero latency limting mode
– true zero attack (0.0 ms)
– negative ratios possible
– parallel compression, peak-compression, RMS-compression
– external side-chain (AU version: only stereo at the moment as separate version)
– side-chain listen
– easy mode which features 4 different compression styles
– lots of comprehensive presets to keep you started
