Sonicrusher is a versatile compressor plugin with some extra features.

Sonicrusher does not model any real hardware but it is capable of everything from gentle transparent compression to extreme compression that will smack your drums hard.

It can be run in Modern level detector mode (feed-forward) for fast and hard transient shaping, or Vintage (feed-back) detector mode which is more gentle.

It has adjustable knee and RMS and of course hi-pass (and even lo-pass) sidechain filter. It can work also in "Split" mode, which compresses high frequencies separately with slightly different parameters (It is useful for example on vocals or on some synths).

One other special feature is "Crush" - band-pass or hi-pass filter with overdrive which can add some life back to the compressed signal and even can be controlled by actual compression. There is also clipper with adjustable threshold, and dry/wet mix. Automatic gain compensation is also available.

It pushes me to set the settings more aggressively. Delicious thing!

One of the best free compressors with Kotelnikov and Fircomp. No need for paid-versions.

What happened to their free guitar amp?

It turned out to be too good and was replaced by a paid version. But we cannot really blame them. There is no free lunch.

Reasonable. I want to "blame" them, but I can't locate the wherewithal to do so. They're already generous for offering what they do for free.

Tried it over and over again but it won’t work as espected. My word files were not size reduced. I really prefer 7z and WinRar over this
