darc.lv2 - Dynamic Audio Range Compressor
darc.lv2 is a general purpose audio signal compressor.
The compression gain is controlled by threshold and ratio only: Makeup gain is automatically set to retain equal loudness at -10 dBFS/RMS with a soft knee. This maintains perceived loudness over a wide range of thresholds and ratio settings.
The Plugin has five controls which can be operated by mouse-drag and the scroll-wheel. Holding the Ctrl key allows for fine-grained control when dragging or using the mouse-wheel on a knob.
Furthermore the UI offers
- Shift + click: reset to default
- Right-click on knob: toggle current value with default, 2nd click restore.
