Voxengo Deft Compressor is an audio signal compressor plug-in for professional audio production applications. The characteristic feature of this compressor is its ability to produce "slim" and "slick" sounding compression, with intelligibility enhancement effect. Such a result is achieved by the compressor's timing function that closely resembles the S-curve on both attack and release stages. S-curve timing function also helps compressor to sound "warm" and "clean" in most settings.
While at high attack settings Deft Compressor can be used to emphasize audio transients, it can also be used to "smash" audio signal if you use attack settings as low as 0.1 milliseconds. Deft Compressor also features a so-called "vintage" compression mode which produces compression sound reminiscent of analog valve compressors: it produces a warm, gently saturated sound with the ability to overdrive the output signal.
Deft Compressor is perfectly usable for compressing vocals, drums, guitars and other instruments, both technically and creatively. Besides that, it can be used to compress mix groups and full mixes.
