"It's one of my secrets used in parallel on lead vocals."
. One of the masterminds behind Fuseroom Recording Studio.
"I love the Royal Compressor, it’s about time someone made a really great plug-in for that great old classic compressor, and this one hits the spot!"
. Renowned record producer with over 30 years experience.
"A great emulation of a hardware classic."
. One half of UK production duo Simon and Diamond.

The Royal Compressor is inspired by a model of the classic British device from the Beatles era. The original Royal Compressor was used on hundreds of record since the sixties and delivers a true vintage analogue sound and feel. This classic compressor offers pleasant saturation and sensitive compression, something every track really needs.

Key Features

Vari-mu Compression

The simulation of the vari-mu circuits delivers warmth and pleasant compression to any kind of audio material. It‘s more than suitable for vocals, bass and drums on both insert and bus channels.

Just a Few Knobs

Back in the analogue days when every mix was achieved manually, it was necessary, to keep as few controls as possible. Royal Compressor honours this philosophy. Having just a few knobs will have a massive impact on your sound and deliver a vintage sound almost instantly.

Three Circuit Types

The A/B/C Model knob gives you a chance to switch between three models of circuitry with a different value of fixed attack.

Automatic Gain Control

No need to worry about the volume level anymore. The AGC keeps the output signal at the same level no matter how much input gain you add. This effect can result in some serious saturation! This also means Changing colour doesn't change the output volume then.

The Saturator

Unlike the original vintage devices, Royal Compressor also features an adjustable amount of valve saturation. The random saturation algorithm creates the effect that the real hardware would have on your tracks.

CPU Friendly

Although Royal Compressor operates using high internal sample rate, the modern simulation technology allows it to deliver great sound using minimal CPU power.

Hassle-Free Software Protection

No iLok, no dongle or internet access is required for activation. This software uses licence files to activate your software. You can freely use the purchased software on all your computers as long as you are the user.

Realistic 3D Yet Flexible GUI

The photorealistic graphic user interface of the plugin gives you the feeling you are touching the real hardware. You can always drag the arrow in the bottom right corner to change its size - make it smaller to save the valuable screen space, or enlarge it to make it easier to use.

15-Days Unlimited Trial Version for Free

All the descriptions are nothing compared to putting hands on the plugin yourself. No saving limits. No noises. No boundaries. Engage the plugin in your project and fully exploit its powers for two weeks.

64-bit Audio Quality at ANY Sampling Rate

The plugin provides the maximum audio quality you can get. It uses internal 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sampling rate. 192 kHz or even higher.

Smart Bypass

The intelligent way this plugin manages bypassing ensures that you don't get any clicks or harmful noises when automating the parameter.
