The Gold Standard in Analog M/S Mastering Compressors

The hardware alpha compressor is coveted for its professional dynamics processing, featuring innovative functions and absolutely uncompromising sound quality. It set new standards for audio mastering thanks to its M/S processing, parallel compression, and highly-responsive limiters and audio filters among other features.

This 100% discrete class-A analog beast provides an amount of openness and clarity unmatched in the dynamics processing world. Every part of its signal processing is based on single transistors running in class-A mode. Even the sidechain and power supply use discrete circuits. All components are of the highest grade available and exclusively chosen according to their sonic excellence.

Using Brainworx’s advanced circuit modeling techniques, the alpha compressor plugin captures every nuance of its brilliant hardware idol and delivers it to your DAW.

In addition to the full-blown Mastering version of the alpha compressor, we have also developed a simpler Mixing version. This version eliminates some of the more advanced features, making it a great mixing tool for individual signals as well.
