Bedroom Compressor is a a diode bridge-based compressor

This compressor has some great features like a blend knob and a high-pass filter side-chain. This compressor expects a signal in dBU's, so -18 to -15 is the sweet spot!  It is based on a famous channel strip re-issue.
  • Make-Up Gain - Output volume control to make up for the compressed signal.
  • High-Pass Filter - High-pass filter with a cutoff range between 20 to 350 Hz.
  • High-Pass Side-Chain - Toggle between the filter in input mode or side-chain mode. In filter mode (button off), the filter will act like a normal filter on the input. In side-chain mode (button on),  the filter will only affect the signal that the threshold checks, which means you can filter out bass from the threshold so that it doesn't hit the compressor as hard, but the bass will still pass through. This is great if you want to compress your drums without the kick affecting the compression amount.
  • In Button - Turns the compressor on or off.
  • Threshold - What level the compressor kicks in.
  • Ratio - How much the signal is turned down when compressed.
  • Speed - Combination of attack and release parameters, from slow - auto.
  • Blend - Mix between the dry and compressed signal.

Compressor is very transparent. You hardly even realize it's on a source. I personally don't like this. Some color is better then no color at all. But thats just my taste. The VU Meter needle animation is a little Ehh. But overall something I might use.

Don't forget to use the mix knob which determines the amount of comp. Turning it all the way right gives the full compressor mix. This seems good for mastering. I like the dual function of the HP filter!
