Tokyo Dawn Labs - Feedback Compressor II - WOW!!

Post by david1103 » Sun May 05, 2013 3:20 pm

Has anyone got any testing feedback on this? All i can read is insane levels of praise for this, there must be some flaw i am missing? Its easy to get carried away on hype, but this things seems to justify it from my initial tests. Still need to live with it to really get it.

It uses a new technology, it up-samples internally, but adds the compression back to the original signal. This means only the altered part of the output signal is oversampled, the rest is bit perfect! Results are incredibly clean.

I think I am going to ditch most of my software compressors and just master this. I will of course keep using a few select Nebula compressors for the 3d/character, but if i just want compression and nothing else, i cant imagine anything sounding better than the Feedback Compressor II :D

It's free and win/mac:

I was pretty blown away by it - have it sitting on my master buss - on the master tighten preset :) feels like it tightens up the loose ends in the bottom frequencies of a mix - fan so far - also yes very very clean to my ear.

I forgot about that plugin. It can be real useful for instrument placing in the front/back field. Definitely have to try out this compressor

@ Proximity: anyone knows how to change the skin? There is a nice red skin as an alternative when you unzip the file, but the manual doesn't explain how to change it. Probably very basic, but I don't know how to do it!

The alternative skin is actually it's own dll. So if you want to use one or the other, you need to load that as your plugin. I don't think that it is possible to change the skin of the plugin while using it. So it is really 2 different plugins with their own skin. I renamed the dll and renamed them in Reaper so I know which is which. Am I understanding your question right?

Aha, got it,thanks, richie43! Guess I was too tired...!

But using the 'red' version, it seems like there is no fine tuning knob as it is in the 'blue' version?
