Comp670 is Overloud's recreation of a very rare, legendary tube compressor. It has a unique and distinctive tone thanks to the large number of transformers in the signal chain which give it a very warm tone.
Comp670 extends the features of the original hardware and combines the flexibility of the digital world with the sound character of analog processing.
Select one of the three units sampled in London, Los Angeles and Milan studio, each with its own personality and unique tone.
You can tweak the Low Cut filter on the Sidechain to reduce the compressor sensitivity to low frequencies. This is particularly useful to control the amount of "pumping" effect.
Parallel compression is a powerful mixing technique which helps improve the overall impact of the track while leaving the transients intact. It is achieved by summing the compressor output to the original track.
Every surviving example of this compressor has its own history and component tolerance, which gives each one a unique tone and dynamic response. That's why Overloud sampled three different hardware units, each serviced multiple times since the ‘50s (found in London, Los Angeles and Milan studios), and packed them into one powerful plugin.
