ChopChop's algorithm was originally designed to be reasonably clean while operating with a very fast attack time and classic peak detection. The result is a very flexible compressor with a distinct sound. ChopChop is best used when the compression is meant to be heard, but it can act as an invisible tool as well!
It offers a rich feature set, presented on a very simple user interface, designed for a optimal workflow. Distinct features like the adjustable range knee or the release acceleration control distinguish it form other compressors.
Lastly, its external side-chain allows ChopChop to duck tracks or tame fighting frequencies, which might come in handy at any time!
Flexible High Quality Oversampling
Oversampling is a technique used to prevent aliasing at low sample rates, a common and mostly undesired artifact created by digital audio processing. There are numerous ways of achieving this goal. With audioD3CK you can oversample your way! Use the colourful polyphase oversampling or stick to the crystal clear linear phase oversampling, set a fixed ratio (x1 - x64) or set a minimum sample rate at which the processor should operate (20khz - 1mhz)
