Brainworx AMEK Mastering Compressor - A digital recreation of a modern mastering classic

A compressor that hears music like you do
Like the original high-end hardware that inspired it, AMEK’s Mastering Compressor takes advantage of multiple True RMS detectors. This allows it to respond intelligently to changes in signal energy in the same naturally logarithmic way as the human ear, for stunningly transparent dynamic control.

Controls unlike any other compressor
Instead of employing conventional attack and release controls, the AMEK Mastering Compressor offers an even more flexible way of dialing in the perfect compressor timing. Using 3 distinct detector circuits—slow, fast and peak—you can choose exactly how much compression you want for each aspect of the signal, to strike the perfect blend. It’s almost like having three complementary compressors in one.

A new way to visualize compression
This mastering grade tool offers not just a unique take on using compression, but a better way of visualizing it, too. The new, Brainworx-designed detector graph shows you exactly which of the three detector circuits is controlling the compressor’s response at any given time. Meanwhile, the distinctive output meter (borrowed from the original hardware), shows you how much output, compression and net signal change are occurring, all in one glance.

Fine tune to your heart’s content
With the ratio control in its “Soft” setting, the AMEK Mastering Compressor has a gentle, program-dependent ratio reminiscent of the best tube compressors, but with much more transparency. In the rest of its settings, it takes on a harder knee for snappier, more assertive compression that still sounds remarkably smooth and clean. Controls like “Release Hysteresis” and “Timing” allow for exacting refinement of the compressor’s envelope.

Made for more than just mastering
Although the original hardware was widely coveted for its rich and transparent performance in mastering and mix bus applications, it’s also a favorite on all sorts of single instrument sources, including vocals, bass, acoustic guitar and more. The plugin includes a dedicated mono version designed specifically for these uses.

Made even more powerful with plugin-only features
As always, the engineers at Brainworx have added new digital-only features that would be impossible in the analog domain. In addition to regular favorites like the Mono Maker, Stereo Width, Auto Listen, Headroom and TMT controls, the AMEK Mastering Compressor adds the visual detector graph, a powerful 3-band sidechain filter, and a totally new feature called VCA Clip, which models the soft-clipping behavior of the original analog VCA at high signal levels.

- An analog model of Dirk Ulrich’s privately owned compressor unit
- Offers a different way to approach compression, with unrivaled transparency
- Two True RMS detectors and one Peak detector blend together to respond intelligently to real signal energy
- Brainworx´ TMT inside: Tolerance Modeling Technology (TMT, US Patent No. 10,725,727) simulates channel-to-channel variances in electronic components for the most realistic analog sound in the box
- VCA Clip control
- Ambience - lets you easily hear exactly what your compressor is doing
- Headroom control for gain-staging
- Detector Activity Monitor - Displays the relation between the three level detectors to visualize timing behavior and Threshold setting
- Auto Listen - To accurately position the filter in the frequency domain and to clearly hear the effect of the dynamics
- Mono-Maker - Sums your low-frequency content to mono, giving you focused, punchy bass response
- Stereo Width - To expand the stereo width of your tracks
- A separate Mono Version - for using the plugin on individual tracks such Bass Drum, Snare, Bass, Vocals etc.
- Scalable User Interface
- Artist Presets provided by Craig Bauer

Question ? Is The Patch Universal Because They Are Named The Same Thanks
  Member 6.10.2019 7
I dont think they are same, they have different file sizes. Ive donwnloaded them and renamed them.
  Member 5.10.2021 7 179
Yeah, the setups are for the correct plugins, but all the files have been named PA Patcher. Like, Darkknob, I've just renamed the files. These are some Powerful drops this week!

Thanks so much for your hard work and help to this community
  Member 18.04.2012 10
anyone knows of these cracked PA plugins break the purchased ones we have installed on our system?
  Member 17.02.2024 3 203
Nope they work perfectly fine alongside, though i think there's some setting you want to make sure you don't turn on (like auto-update all, something like that). Works great for me on M1 Monterey Logic 10.7.8
  Member 18.04.2012 10
Thank you, gotcha! I always work offline and no updates. thanks!

All working here.

Make sure you thank these guys, there was a time it was impossible to get any of these for free.

Keep going MORiA

Just run the installer. You'll get AU, VST, VST3 in the respective directories.

This works like a charm, easy and simple installation. *Bottom toolbar is not displayed and appears blank, as well as recently released plugins (visual detail that does not affect its operation)

AU and VST2 works perfectly on MacOS 10.12.6 intel
Logic Pro X 10.4.4
Ableton live 10.1.43

Thank you so much!
