The first Digidesign TDM plug in optimized for the Pro Tool HD Accel PCI cards, the Impact compressor is the first of its kind to bring console-style mix bus compression to Pro Tools via a familiar user interface and control set. With support for multichannel tracks up to 7.1 and sampling rates up to 192 kHz, Impact offers unmatched features and sound previously unavailable with other TDM compressors.
Impact's clean and well-organized user interface emulates the look of a console mix bus compressor. Its control set includes four selectable compression ratios and variable controls for Attack, Release, Threshold and Make-up Gain. The Impact compressor interface includes a Gain Reduction meter that replicates an analog meter with an animated bouncing needle within the meter that displays authentic ballistics as it meters gain reduction. The Impact compressor also includes a side-chain input, allowing any Pro Tools audio track to be used as an external key.
Pro Tools users accustomed to working on the compressor section of the mix-bus on a console will feel right at home with Impact. Easily dial up the same presets and achieve the same sound that they've come to expect from console use. New Pro Tools operators will find the clean and well-distributed control set particularly accommodating.
Ideal for professional music and post environments where critical control of dynamic program material is essential, Impact's ability to go from subtle smoothing of dynamics to extreme squashing compression is without peer.
