The Simplest Way to Maximize Your Volume


MV2 is no ordinary compressor—sure, it can compress audio above a threshold. But it can also compress low-level audio upward. Bring up a drum’s room sound, without compromising peaks. Or sharpen the focus on tracks that were mixed too low, without having to lower everything else.

With its problem-solving talents, novel functionality, and incredibly simple operation, the MV2 is one of those plugins that will make you wonder how you ever got along without it.

  • Combines two special-purpose compressors in one plugin
  • Exceptional with vocals—controls peaks, and amplifies lower levels
  • Accent room sound with acoustic instruments, yet retain dynamics
  • Use as a leveling amplifier for widely varying dynamics
  • Dial in stunning results with only three controls
  • Truly completes your compressor toolbox
Watch It in Action

Lower the Peaks, Bring Up the Detail, or Both

  • Hot and Humanized Vocals

    Compression can tame vocal peaks, but that doesn’t help lower-level signals. Compressing low-level signals upward, and high-level signals downward, retains the voice’s subtle human qualities and emotional nuances—even with vocals that are recorded “hot.”

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • One Compressor, or Two? Yes.

    To obtain this level of control, you’d normally need a traditional compressor, and a separate upward compressor (if you can find one). The MV2 integrates both functions into a single, versatile, easy-to-use dynamics processor.

  • Elevate Room Ambience for a Natural Feel

    Room sound and ambience give life and character to acoustic instruments. Upward compression can elevate room sounds for piano, guitar, drums, wind instruments, or any other acoustic sound source in a room.

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation
  • More Control, with Fewer Controls

    Three controls are all you need: set the upper threshold where higher-level signals are compressed, the lower threshold below which lower-level signals are brought up, and then tweak the output level… done.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
