Marquis features a unique signal level detector algorithm which creates a very open, punchy compressed sound with an impressive transient response. Beside this, Marquis compressor offers you a classic feedback (opto) compression mode switchable to a more common feed-forward compression. Both modes perform differently, but equally well.
While Marquis works fine with normal compression levels it works exceptionally well for brutal "tape" drum compression. Program-dependent compression release stage can be controlled precisely via special "contour" parameters this compressor possesses.
All these excellent features are backed up by a responsive and consistent graphical representation. You may visually control compression function, release contour, key signal filtering EQ curve, level detector, gain reduction and output signal meters.
We would like to focus your attention on a new level meter design we have implemented for Marquis. These level meters are built up from four RMS meters all tuned to different integration times. Such design allows you to evaluate dynamics of the signal and see the constant signal level together with transient signal peaks. Conventional level meters are unable to deliver such information which by itself is most useful when setting up dynamics processing.
