REQ: Acustica Audio Opal Comp
Opal Comp is John Oram's compression expertise together in an all-encompassing plugin.
Opal Comp is undoubtedly the new frontier of compression, representing the best possible combination of old and new, drawing from the expertise of one of the most renowned British designers, Mr. John Oram. This dual-mono plugin, available in VST, VST3, AAX, and AU formats, has been faithfully sampled to offer one of the best high-quality dynamic processors from the esteemed John Oram, chosen over the years by many industry professionals, including the legendary Al Schmitt.
The Perfect Blend: Merging Two Technologies for Superior Results
Opal Comp aims to deliver the essence of the precision compressors/limiters, manufactured in England and built to extremely high standards and durability, as with all Oram products, and is based on the Sonicomp compressor technology. This precision limiter/compressor provides the same vibes of the renowned 'Oram Sonics Sonicomp 2' and enhances them through the use of Acustica's Hyper 3 technology.
The Opal Comp plugin, like its bigger sibling the Oram Sonics Sonicomp 2 hardware, features a high-quality calibrated VU meter for level reduction and gain, a ‘hybrid’ optical-solid-state design, a feed-forward compression mode, and extra controls that ensure maximum versatility for the plugin, all in a pleasing
pastel blue color, preserving the aesthetics of the original units in the digital domain.
