BeatSkillz has released Bounce, a new versatile compressor VST, AU plugin for Windows and MAC OS, perfect to be used on punchy sounds.
This is the third plugin developed by BeatSkillz after Slam Dawg mastering processor and That Thing plugin.
We had the pleasure to talk with the creator of this plugin and we asked him how Bounce was born, please read on:
“I am actually a total compressor freak, and I have many hardware pieces from the Empirical Labs Distressor, to FATSO, API 2500 , Kush Tweakers and others.
Although I have used many emulations from UA, Waves and other manufacturers, which sound great by the way :), I was looking to get more control of sonics and think about how all these analog compressors work so different.
I realized that most of the behavior of different compressors is determined by how the Detection circuit works, how frequency, peak etc are analyzed and then a compressor reacts to those, giving it, its unique sound.
By giving the user access to choose an entire frequency range with feedback control, one can actually sidechain the compressor more accurately to shape the sound in the way one desires.. “hence” it can do anything from subtle compression to full on thrusting , chest hitting kick drums and snare, or squashed drum room sounds, vocals, de-essing.. etc. – says Gaurav Dayal, BeatSkillz founder (Award Winning Music Composer, Producer & Entrepreneur).”
Bounce features a “Detection Section” that can be used to select the desired frequency band, then you can use it into the compressor to create the desired sound shape.
The new Bounce compressor plugin can be applied on many instruments from Drums, Bass, Synths, Percussion, Guitars, Acoustic Instruments, even on Vocals or to the entire Mix and for mastering audio.
