The Gold Standard for Modern Compressors


The Renaissance Compressor revives the warmth that made vintage analog compressors great—with the transparency and additional features made possible only with modern software designs.

As the gold standard for modern compressors, R-Comp brings clarity and definition, with the added versatility of classic opto or modern “electro” attack/release times.

Dynamics Made Easier

  • Choose Your Character

    Maybe you like a smooth, “optical” character for vocals and bass. Or maybe you prefer the modern VCA sound for tighter, faster compression. Renaissance Compressor offers you the best of both characters.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • Compress Down—or Expand Up

    Emphasize the snap of percussion, accent acoustic guitar strums, or make attacks more prominent—to give the excitement of upward expansion, Renaissance Compressor can set compression ratios lower than 1:1.
