Sonible smartComp v1.0.2-R2R screenshot

smart:comp is the latest addition to the product line of A.I. powered plug-ins by sonible. This unique spectro-dynamic compressor finds the parameters for well-balanced compression results in just a few seconds. Through frequency-selective processing, smart:comp also ensures unparalleled transparency. With this multidimensional approach, compression has evolved to the next level.

smart:comp is the synergy of intelligently enhanced time-domain compression and trailblazing spectral compression. Behind the user-friendly and intuitive interface of this new plug-in, runs the smart:engine – an A.I.-based, content-aware system designed on the basis of psychoacoustic principles as well as extensive hands-on mixing experience.

The time-domain compressor recommends the most appropriate settings for threshold, ratio, attack and release with a single click, as the spectral compression dynamically keeps an eye on the tonal balance of the input signal.

R2R is also able to defeat the creators of A.I. products. Who are they really?

Wish they would lower the latency for this in a future update. I stopped using it for that reason. Cpu usage was very little but the small latency was a bit annoying and no option to lower latency.

so annoying, I had to print my mixes inside each session to get an export that was screwed up by the terrible PDC with this plugin
Keep going...

Just use Reaper.

Thanks R2R. Great compressor to try out a little longer.

I really do not understand exactly what AI does, for me this plugin is like choosing first a preset and the AI makes a little adjustement that I frequently readjust.

so what is the point?

Tonal and dynamic balance with spectral compression.
What does that means? Is it a kind of multi-band compressor? Isn't that what every compressor does?

I have compared it in a vocal track with Arousor, which is one of my favorite compressors and failed to make the AI exceed the results of Arousor.

Thanks, but as long as I can't find something that I consider a real advantage or a better sound I'll keep my ol good comps.

I think AI is more selling jargon aimed at the amateur Tom, dick and Harry who want plugins that do the work for them, and there’s apparently a market full of them

Thank you so much fumtime And R2R

Thanks, hoping for this

Bad Noyz, smartComp and Arousor serve two different purposes, both useful! smartcomp is very transparent and Arouser is adding another color to your palette.

As a standard compressor, smartComp is, well, very standard. The thing that is so nice about it is the spectral compression. Instead of having 3 or 4 bands of compression, you have say 2,000, only compressing the bands that need compressing. The AI does a pretty good job of choosing attack and release times and you can still tweak it as much as you want. On a stereo drum bus, it can sound amazing!

I agree that different compressors serve different functions, however I do not like the "I know what is best for you" approach, which has this compressor, especially if I'm finally going to modify the result that the AI suggests, I just don't see the point.

Chosing attack and release for me?
I doubt that this apply to me, since for me a compressor is a tool that modifying its parameters properly, allows to sculpt the sound adapting it to a specific context or to a particular purpose. This should be done by preserving or even improving their innate characteristics.

In the case of the drum bus, I prefer FET compressors, although lately I have been using the FG-GRAY from Slate Digital Virtual Buss Compressors, in a drum buss I seek to glue and define a virtual space through the sound characteristics, the compressors I use there are not necessarily my chosen one for an individual track.

I did not like the approach of this plugin when I tried it on a track, I would not think that it will greatly improve my opinion using it on a bus, although finally mixing is an art and if the tools that everyone uses lead to achieving the desired end, welcome be.

I like to use this and Smart EQ on individual tracks and busses to quickly balance the freqs and tame transients and resonances. Any other character/color is added afterwards (e.g. extra compressor) on individual tracks and busses.

Is it cpu friendly?
  Member 6.01.2015 457
Yes it is.
