Nano Dynamics Is A Free Multi-Band Compressor By OneCluckChords


OneCluckChords announces the release of Nano Dynamics, a FREE multi-band compressor and maximizer plugin.

Although the company is a relatively new player in the plugin game, its aptitude for valuable and efficient music production software shows with the release of Nano Dynamics.

Compression is one of the most over-used yet misunderstood tools by music producers.

When used right, compression is essential to take individual tracks and whole songs to the next level. While some people like to use a standard compressor as a blanket effect, producers can also take it further with multi-band compression.

Nano Dynamics offers multi-band compression with a simple and easy-to-use interface.

Once applied to your track/song, this plugin divides your frequencies into Highs, Mids, and Bass, allowing you to use compression individually on different frequencies or “bands.”

Multi-band compressors are incredibly useful for bringing out desired sounds from tracks while maintaining the qualities of other frequencies.

For example, this form of compression is widespread on lead vocals.

Often singers will be projecting more volume while singing in a lower range. A multi-band compressor can help compress the lows so that the vocal maintains consistency even as they begin to sing higher, which can often sound “thinner.”

Within Nano Dynamics, these three frequency bands are controlled with a simple compression slider followed by a knob to determine the overall output to the master.

OneCluckChords notes that their plugin works by “auto-detecting attack and release times.” After the levels are determined, the signal is sent through their Maximizer algorithm.

Users then have the option to cut the low end or high end from their signal and add “Power” and “Swing.”

Nano Dynamics has one final maximizer to polish the sound before determining your desired overall dry/wetness.

The user interface features bold colors and simple font against a white background, offering a genuinely no-nonsense and practical platform to add multi-band compression and hone your sound!

To download/install this plugin, follow the link to the plugin page on the KVR Audio website. You’ll see the option to “download,” which will take you to a Google Drive folder containing the needed files.

Nano Dynamics is currently only available to Windows users in VST3 format.

  1. So, it’s like OTT, but free… …wait! :D
    Mmm, surprise feature, it inverts stereo image!! LOL
    The smallish horizontal controls could be finer, double-click should reset to default. I’m not a qualified compressor user, so I’ll let comments to sound quality/effect to others.
    OneClickChords(.com?) is the name of the dev. OneCluckChords is the name of my rubber chicken barbershop band.

      • Myup, I played with it a bit, there’s more controls (always good, well you can overdo it). And I like the sound I can get out of it, even if I’m not sure what I’m doing. It makes me want to try AGAIN to learn what compressors do, exactly. And that is probably one of its best features. :)
        Now seriously, I can’t be the only one getting a swapped stereo. o_O O_o

          Thanks for the comment! Yeah, compressors can be confusing; dynamic range compression was the most difficult mixing concept for me to fully grasp back in the day. Multiband compression even more so.

          • Because people spoke so much BS about compression back in the day. And probably still do. Compression is quite simple thing, but information on it was filled with crap like “oh it’s about dynamic range, oh it makes your sound fat” and so on. I suppose those myths were produced by engineers who played with compressors by ear and never really knew what was going on.

            Here is my explanation what it is. An old topic on KVR. Over the time I only realized I was right.

            Once understood it is just a volume slider then things start to get clear.

            Of course compression is also about dynamic range, but it doesn’t help to understand compression, only confuse more.

            • Indeed, the problem with bad info is that sometimes you can’t forget it and it corrupts your brainmeats. Then you give up and go by ear, or don’t care about it anymore. Also a lot of times explanations gave me a sense of “there’s no differences between a compressor and a limiter” and yet, I’m sure there is one. Add in expanders in the mix (pun intended) and… O_O;;;
              Cool a video narrated by Dan Worrall, I’ll watch it before going to sleep tonight. :D

              • Limiter is like a certain case of a compressor, or like a certain preset of a compressor(capable to be set to a such preset). But nowadays they also have additional stuff under the hood, like transient improvements and soft clip.

                So some compressor can be set to a preset where it acts like a limiter. But limiters are narrowed only to act in that tiny range.

                So they are really similar things crossing at some point.

  2. It is interesting how plugins can arrive at the same time. Sixth Sense has also just release Cramit this week, which they say is a variation of OTT “combining multiband compression and high-quality distortion”
