New - TOA Compressor Plugin

Posted: 8 October 2014

Version 1.1.4 of the TOA Manipulators library includes a new spatial "TOA Compressor" plugin which can be used to reduce the dynamic range of an entire 3D TOA mix.

This plugin should look familiar to folk who are used to compressors, except for the "directivity" dial.

TOA Compressor

What's clever here is that the compressor works on an entire 3D TOA mix. You might be wondering what this means spatially - what happens when something too loud happens in one direction? Does the entire mix drop in level, or just the sound in that direction? Well, it's up to you - this is what the "directivity" control is for, so you can choose.
