Klanghelm DC8C advanced compressor v3.0.0 WiN-OSX RETAiL-SYNTHiC4TE screenshot
SYNTHiC4TE | June 22 2018 | 119 MB
DC8C is one of the most flexible compressors around.
While making a lot of different compression styles possible, it's general nature may be described as: clear, smooth, open, distinct.

The main goal while designing DC8C was to get a very clean compressor action without unwanted and often almost inevitable artifacts/distortion. This way you can achieve almost invisible compression for your most demanding mastering sessions, when you want to avoid coloration.

If you aim for color you can choose between two saturation models.
From opto-style, peak compression, external side-chaining, RMS compression, Feedback, Feedforward compression (and everything in-between) to negative ratios, zero latency brick-wall limiting, from snappy transient treatment to smooth transient rounding - everything is possible.

DC8C Feature List

detector network and gain reduction smoothing for extra smooth operation
choose between two different attack and two release curves
four different operational modes: NORMAL, CLEAN (100% clean compression with no intermodulation, no distortion, no aliasing), SMASH (ultrafast compression characteristics, almost clipper territory), LIMIT (use DC8C as a zero latency limiter)
optional soft-clipper at the output
up to 8x oversampling
side-chain filter with high pass & low pass filter plus tilt control, which let's you shift the frequency response of the detector
the saturation stage can be put freely into the signal chain: pre compression, post compression and side-chain only
three different compression curves selectable
customize the program dependency of the compressor separately for Attack and Release
GR-smoothing control to determine, how sensitive the compressor reacts to changes in the computed gain reduction, great to emulate opto-style compression
hold control, great for heavy pumping compression effects
pre-attack control to delay the start of the attack to leave transients completely alone or radically shape the attack
VU and peak metering
calibration control not only to set the reference level for the VU-meter and the saturation
unique Feedback-Mix-Control, which lets you determine, how much of the compressor's output is fed back into the detector. This way it is possible to morph between Feedback and Feedforward Compression topologies
true zero attack (0.0 ms)
negative ratios possible
parallel compression, peak-compression, RMS-compression
external side-chain
side-chain listen
Easy Mode which features 4 distinct compression styles
AGC (automatic gain compensation)
GUI resizing
comprehensive preset-browser with lots of presets to keep you started

Thanks a lot SYNTHiC4TE and Horsemen
Come here just to try the software and buy it afterwards.
If I don't like the software I will just DELETE it.

WHAT'S NEW (shortly):
- platform independent preset browser with easy copy/paste/save-as-default
- AB-ing
- GUI-resizing
- meter can now operate as a peak meter with peak hold indicator, on stereo tracks the peak meter shows both left and right channel information separately
- AGC (automatic gain reduction)
- linear phase oversampling filters
- option to set separate oversampling factors for realtime and offline/rendering operation
- saturation has a separate amount control
- optional soft peak clipper at the output
- lowpass and highpass sidechain filters can be set to 12dB steepness
- overhauled compression algorithms
- overhauled EASY modes
- switching from one of the easy modes to expert mode doesn't change the sound anymore. So choose an easy mode, tweak and then switch to expert mode for deeper manipulations if needed
- external sidechaining for all formats
- VST3 support
- and more...

WHAT'S NEW (in detail):
06/18/18 version 3.0.0
- new Framework (JUCE)
- new GUI
- GUI resizing
- AB-ing
- platform independent preset browser with easy copy/paste/save-as-default
- meter can now operate as a peak meter with peak hold indicator, on stereo tracks the peak meter shows both left and right channel information separately
- AGC (automatic gain reduction)
- linear phase oversampling filters
- option to set separate oversampling factors for realtime and offline/rendering operation
- global settings to enable tooltips, tweak knob behaviour and to exclude GUI-size, calibration-, oversampling- and AGC-settings from recalling when switching AB-states or presets
- switching from one of the easy modes to expert mode doesn't change the sound anymore. So choose an easy mode, tweak and then switch to expert mode for deeper manipulations if needed
NOTE: when switching from Expert to Easy mode the sound will change though as the selected Easy mode is being fully adapted
- flatter frequency response of the saturation
- saturation has a separate amount control
- output gain doesn't affect feedback signal anymore
- optional soft peak clipper at the output
- extended release times
- attack knob range is now 0 to 60 ms in Expert mode, if you need longer attack times, enable the x10 switch near the attack control to multiply the selected attack time by 10
- lowpass and highpass sidechain filters can be set to 12dB steepness
- limit mode switch has been moved to the OPERATION dropdown
- limit mode is a lot more tweakable than in previous versions, allowing for analog style non-brickwall limiting, best to be used in conjunction with the new soft clipper in the output section.
(limit mode can still be used as zero latency brickwall limiter if ATTACK, PRE-ATT, attack PROG-DEP and GR-SMOOTH are set to 0)
- revised compression algorithms
- revised EASY modes
- SMASH mode doesn't require min. 2x oversampling anymore
- VST3 support
- external sidechaining for all formats, including AAX
- support for ProTools' gain reduction meter in the mixer
- the AU-version now fully supports external sidechaining too, removing the need for the additional external-sidechain AU-version
- removed RTAS version
- due to the many changes and the use of a new framework, the new version has a new filename and plugin-ID, so both DC8C3 and the old DC8C2 can be used side-by-side in your projects
- system requirements: Windows 7 SP1 or higher / MacOSX 10.9 or higher

Thanks a lot Horsemen,
Hey friends, please buy it if you use it ! it's cheap and Tony need our support to have space for inspiration and produce great software again !

best regards

Klanghelm is on my list of companies/individuals who I compensate when I am able. They make quality gear and it's at a reasonable price; I got'em.

Really good compressor at a really, really reasonable price. Perhaps almost a theft.
I own SDRR and VUMT, and I'm 100% buying this one.

Klanghelm plugins are so good.

Each plugin around 23 euros, really good price for that quality.

I cannot agree more with the above statements. it's dirt cheap and and amazingly clean compressor. This dev is amazing and needs every bit of support
Keep trying, always experiment, build experience, fail constantly and train your ears. The rest is inconsequential

Thank you, Horsemen!!
I was waiting for this one. I like Klanghelm because they seem to listen to their customers and do more than revamp a GUI when they update their plugins.
And, as I mentioned above, Klanghelm makes great gear. They are on my list of companies/individuals who I compensate when I'm able to.

Tube eq also has been announced by klanghelm year ago)
Everything he announced is already released)

Thanks Horsemen and TEAM SYNTHiC4TE for this great update!
This comp is just amazing, even too cheap for the quality it delivers if you ask me. One of the few things that makes me start to feel bad after using for free for long time. You have no excuse not to support such indy small companies that brings top notch stuff to the market!
Kiddos, I can wipe my @$$ with your Slate crap, or your 50 shiny GUI'd Waves comps, all sounding like [50 shades of] plastic crap.
Please guys support this dev and buy it, you can't go wrong, if you want a good variety of flavours with 50$ you can get this and MJUC (I'm in love with it too!), and then you could trash all your other comps without missing any of them

Their saturator is nice as well!
