GTO is a vintage peak compressor, designed like its muscle car name-sake for brute power, pure speed and to make a loud noise.

It has everything you’d expect in a thorough-bred compressor, but tuned for maximum control and ease of use, with its own unique vintage colouring on top. It has a super-fast attack and release and a wide range of threshold, ratio and output boost, so it can cover everything from subtle correction to death-by-compression, with everything in between. With an external sidechain, wet/dry mix for NY compression and a hard limiter too, you can really push this baby to get pumping bass and block-rockin’ beats. The metering covers input, output and gain reduction, showing real-time and peak levels.
  • Vintage style peak compressor with external sidechain, parallel compression and comprehensive metering.
  • Subtle colouring from a home-made blend of harmonics, saturation and noise.
  • Wet/Dry mix control allows blending of dry uncompressed signal for NY style parallel compression.
  • Choice of 2 attack/release curves.
  • Stereo input detection can be linked or unlinked.
  • Distortion reduction for very short release times.
  • Internal or external sidechain routing.
  • Additional 'Internal sidechain only' versions.
  • Optional hard limiting on final output.
  • Metering covers stereo input, output and gain reduction. All meters show actual and peak levels.
  • Adjustable peak meter hold time.
  • Non-linear knobs for precise control at small values.
  • Presets covering all functions and different configurations.

It never will happen. This was made in Synthedit and the developer quit making plugins years and years ago.

One of my usual compressors. I don't know if it will be one of the best because... I have no ear for subtleties! but I feel very comfortable with its interface.

Strongly recommend trying this, use it to give your overall track a tightness and shine, team it up with a limiter and good EQ to get the perfect result

It's awesome on the master bus! This baby makes the mix sound great.
