Squeezer Compressor

Squeezer Compressor

Challenge

I wrote this compressor to finally understand and master audio compression. It took me several months alone to find scientific papers, specs and intuitive knob settings.

This great-sounding compressor is highly flexible and can be set up quickly while still allowing fine-tuning its settings. Over time, I have optimised its UI and knob settings to a point where I won’t touch other general-purpose compressors anymore.

During the first COVID-19 lock-down, I supported musicians by releasing Squeezer for free. Normally, a compressor of this quality and feature set would cost 50 Euros – at the very least.
