OtiumFX - Compadre Beatpuncher v1.1 (Pc)

COMPADRE is a compressor with an attitude. It has its own unique sound with a quality response optimized for a dedicated purpose - drums. This makes it easy to achieve great results with a minimum of tweaking. While the main purpose is on drum tracks, COMPADRE is flexible and controllable enough to be usable on many other types of tracks and mixes.

COMPADRE is the result of more than one year of research, development, and countless hours of listening tests. The final product is a quality compressor that not only delivers a highly optimized sonic behavior, but also drips with character.

COMPADRE is designed specifically for use on beats, drum loops, and
other percussive material, and it does this with attitude and flexibility. Use it for subtle enhancements or heavy duty compression. While COMPADRE has been designed with drums in mind, it’s range of flexibility allows it to deliver good performances on most types of tracks and mixes as well.
