Courvoisier is a single-band universal dynamics processor with adaptive attack and release algorithms optimized for complex program material (mixes and submixes).

Courvoisier uses free-form curves drawn over the histogram of incoming audio material (as opposed to traditional ratio and threshold parameters) to determine the transfer function of the processing.
  • Histogram representation (sliding-window statistics)of incoming program material and the resulting gain change on which the transfer function can be drawn
  • Free-form upward and downward compression and/or expansion
  • Spline interpolated control curves
  • All performance-critical code optimized in assembly (utilizing SSE2 flow instructions)
  • Two different adaptive attack algorithms (program dependent)
  • Adaptive release algorithm (program dependent, scalable)
  • Additional user defined adaptive release behavior
  • Side chain filtering (low and high pass)
  • MS operation (with support for different transfer curves for Mid and Side channels)
  • Stereo operation (adjustable stereo link)
  • Dry mix option for parallel processing
  • Peak, RMS and Hybrid level detection
  • Very low harmonic distortion (THD during normal operation is below -105 dB FS)
  • Lookahead processing for minimizing distortion with extremely fast attack settings
  • Complex mode (oversampling with a twist)

Amazing freeware compressor! My fave!
