APU Software Loudness Compressor

APU Software Loudness Compressor

The APU Loudness Compressor plug-in is a compressor/expander designed to support modern loudness types (LUFS, True Peak). Typical compressors operate using only RMS and/or Peak units of measurement. But technology has come a long way since then and we're overdue for an upgrade..

This compressor uses modern industry standard LUFS units of measurement to provide a far more transparent response which is connected to the way humans actually experience loudness. This isn't just a superficial difference, the entire signal flow of the compressor operates within this more precise understanding of loudness.

The plug-in user interface provides a more flexible alternative to traditional threshold-and-ratio style of compressor controls. Instead, source and target ranges of loudness can be configured and the compressor will either compress or expand as needed.

Real-time visuals are powered by hand-written OpenGL fragment shaders, providing beautiful iterative graphics which give detailed insight into how your dynamic range is being impacted by the compressor.
