W.A. Production offers the Puncher 2 ($69 value) multi-band compressor plugin as a FREE download until December 22nd, 2022.
Puncher 2 is a versatile compression tool with transient shaping, multi-band compression, and parallel compression capabilities. It typically costs $69, but W.A. Production offers it for free as part of their Christmas Sale.
All three effects listed above are conveniently packed into a single interface. This is useful if you’re mixing a drum kit, for example, as you can shape the transients and compress the signal, all from a single plugin instance.
The interface features a real-time waveform graph and three control knobs, each connected to one compression type (transient shaping, multi-band, and parallel compression). The gain section on the right lets you adjust the master volume. It’s also worth noting that the interface is freely resizable.
To see Puncher 2 in action, check out the official demo video below.
If you’re still learning how compression works, the 48 presets included with Puncher 2 will come in handy. The presets cover a range of compression scenarios, from mixing and mastering to drum buss processing.
Here’s more info from W.A. Production: “Puncher 2 is designed to give you absolute tonal control of transient energy so that you can customize and shape those sounds. Rather than have 3 separate units, Puncher 2 has the 3 elements you need to give your mix that clear extra punch, all in one compact plugin.”
W.A. Production recently launched the annual Christmas Sale, offering discounts on almost all products. For example, you can get a 95% OFF deal on the Deluxe Vocal Bundle.
Don’t forget that all BPB readers can get a free copy of Sibilance ($79 value) by Waves Audio. It’s one of the best de-esser plugins on the market, so getting it for free is a nice deal!
