The Boz Digital Labs’ Manic Compressor plugin has a number of tricks up its sleeve that most compressors don’t have, which makes it worth checking out. It is available in both 32 and 64-bit versions of a wide variety of plug formats for both Mac and PC platforms.
The compressor has 6 distinct modes: Clean, Sheer, Gritty, Digital, Vintage, and Smooth. Each mode uses a different method of detecting the input signal level and deciding how to respond to it. The individual modes also determine how the standard Attack, Release, Threshold, and Ratio controls work and interact as well.
