T-RackS Quad Compressor is a multi-band optical compressor available in VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plugin formats for compatible digital audio workstations on PC and Mac. The plugin’s audio processing engine features four optical compressor modules, each one targeting a separate, user-definable frequency band. The target frequency range for each module is defined using variable slope filters which sound transparent and musical while avoiding phasing issues at higher slope settings.
Multi-band compressors like the T-RackS Quad Compressor are often used on the master bus for balancing the overall frequency response of the song. However, they can also be used for processing individual audio tracks with more complex sound sources such as acoustic drum kits, layered vocals, and more. When an audio source contains a highly dynamic element in a specific frequency range, that’s when a multi-band compressor will do the trick of leveling out the dynamics without affecting the rest of the signal.
