fircomp is a clean compressor with punchy attack, musical release, and optional lookahead smoothing.

For tracks or busses. Zero/low latency and low CPU. Warm distortion at extreme settings.
  • Simple UI and fast workflow.
  • Attack stage tuned for punch. True zero attack (same-sample) when 0.0 ms is selected.
  • Dual parallel release stage with musical, highly program-dependent behaviour. Avoids needing to use multiple compressors in series!
  • Easy sidechain filtering options for common mixing situations.
  • Optional smooth digital FIR lookahead gain smoothing with perfect timing and no artefacts, resulting in the minimum possible distortion.
  • Low CPU DSP code written in a mix of C++ and SSE intrinsics. Insert on every track without a second thought!
  • Zero latency with lookahead off. With lookahead on, compensated latency of 64, 128, or 256 samples depending on sample rate (approximately 1.3 to 1.5 ms).

One of the best compressors I think I have used. Super easy to dial in quick and seems to give great results. It's transparent and effective.

Really solid free compressor plugin. The minimalist GUI looks great, and the controls are easy to understand.
