GTX is a vintage RMS 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. Unlike the peak compression of GTO, it has a smoother RMS delivery and also has further refinement in the shape of a knee control. 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. It also has an adjustable RMS window for customised response and a knee setting to add further refinement. 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 RMS compressor with adjustable RMS and knee, external sidechain, parallel compression and comprehensive metering.
  • Subtle colouring from a home-made blend of harmonics, saturation and noise.
  • RMS window can be set for smooth cruising or sharp response.
  • Knee amount can be changed from gentle curve to sharp edge.
  • 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.

Is not good quality, sounds not clean.

This really is one of the best compressors I've used, but I think it has enormous CPU load or something... I'm not sure if it is my CPU or or what but when you add even COUPLE of these on different channels, you can start hearing constant hissing sound, especially with headphones. The more you have, more prominent it is. Very annoying, but I'm not sure what's actually causing that.

Ahh, this is really good actually. I tried it on my Uplifting Trance kick and it's more prominent now and does not harm other instruments. Nice!
