  • 30% lower CPU usage on AVX2-capable processors (in 64-bit mode).

Crunchessor is a track compressor AAX, AudioUnit and VST plugin for professional sound and music production applications.  One of its main advantages is the ease of tuning, which at the same time instantly delivers an excellent sonic performance.  Another remarkable feature of Crunchessor is its valve-type processing, which is applied in parallel to compression.  This makes Crunchessor an ideal choice for musicians and producers who are fond of analog compression sound and its warmness.

Beside this, Crunchessor offers you a selection of compression coloration styles--by itself a pretty unique feature for a compressor.  By choosing an appropriate coloration style, you can add the character most suitable for the sound material you are working with.  As an option, you can disable both coloration and valve warming processing to get a neutral and clean compression sound.

Being a multi-purpose compressor, Crunchessor can be used for any kind of sound material: drums, vocals, bass, guitars, synth sounds, etc.  Crunchessor can be suitable both for single track and whole mix processing.  Crunchessor also accepts external side-chain source signals and allows you to filter key signal sources before they are used for compression.

  • Easy compression tuning
  • Valve warmness
  • Coloration styles
  • External side-chaining

  • Stereo and multi-channel processing
