The Quad Comp available for free is a multiband dynamics processor that provides control over the full frequency spectrum of a track which allows you to apply the processing to specific parts of the audio. This is achieved with the use of filters which split the full frequency range into separate bands.
This way processing only affects a selected band while the others are left untouched (if desired). This part of the processing is critical as the nature of the filters used for the frequency splitting is crucial in order to achieve a transparent and natural sounding separation of the bands, where the crossover points don’t generate artifacts.
Each compressor has a full set of controls allowing to tailor the compression on the band it’s applied on to achieve the desired result. The flexibility of this processor is also augmented by the selectable slope of the filters which can be as broad as 6 dB/Oct or as steep as 24 dB/Oct, for maximum separation.
The ability to compress each band separately allows you to tame unwanted peaks in a selected portion of the audio spectrum, only if and when a set threshold is exceeded. The possibility to set compression ratio and time constants independently for each band gives you extreme flexibility and precision. Solo and mute buttons make it easy to audition how the compressor is working on a selected band.
