basically it is ready for "expanding" too, because you could set an "higher" level on the eq side. So as soon as it compresses more, it really expands the dynamic range.
It could be also a de-esser, because the sidechain. You are limited to the printed frequencies because this is a tube mastering tool, but basically it works.

Cobalt is the "normal" compressor mode. Violet is the "violet" curve (!!!!). And mantis is the real hero. It is a pwm compressor created by stedal/sounddrops. It is rather powerful, with a very round attack, it preserves bottom drums for example.

The compressor is THE BEST WE HAVE.
Oh yes, we raised the bar also in may ;)

Nice find, though Cobalt has a twist, it’s a “Stedal & Sounddrops” :-) !

Looking forward to details on the home-brew Mantis comp, perhaps inspired by a Crane STC*8 (??)

STC8 would be awesome! Is the other comp the Phoenix? Any clues on the preamp? The whole lot seems custom.
