MIA Laboratories and Plugivery Distribution proudly announce the upcoming availability of MIA Lab's 925 Compressor plug-in.

Available through pro audio resellers worldwide from February 11th, 2020, in AAX / AU / VST2 / VST3 format, Windows and macOS, at the intro price of $89.

The 925 Compressor is MIA Laboratories’ preferred main mix compressor. Designed using physical modelling principles, and based around the classic ‘feed-back’ topology in hardware circuit-design.

A sidechain detection stage is based on the basic analog envelope detector circuit, with key design features also including : -

  • Variable knee response, allowing more compression to be applied, especially on high-transient sounds like percussion, samples, vocals, Etc.
  • Logarithmic gain reduction, since the ear’s sense of sound level is roughly logarithmic.

When used in extreme settings on sounds with long sustain, the 925 Compressor can produce a desirable distortion effect. This happens when due to the high speed of the detector, input signals follow the actual waveform instead of the envelope of the program material.

The 925 offers the user full control of a very broad range of compression characteristics, especially suited for main-mix applications but also buss-mix or multiple separate channels with program-dependent processing.
