|The Renaissance Compressor (RenComp) is an easy-to-use dynamics processor with both Mono and Stereo versions. It’s ideal for:
• Tightening up the sound of kick drums and drum groups
• Adding clarity and punch to bass guitars
• Warming up and smoothing out vocals
Like most compressors, RenComp has controls for Attack, Release, Threshold, Ratio, and Makeup Gain. It also offers two compression behaviors (vintage Opto and contemporary Electro), two compression characters (Warm and Smooth), plus meters which display Input, Attenuation, and Output. RenComp also boasts a couple of special, exclusive features: Automatic Release Control (ARC), which works in conjunction with the Threshold setting to deliver increased RMS levels; and a built-in, behind-the-scenes brickwall Limiter, which ensures clip-free output.
