Presswerk is a powerful and easy-to-use dynamics processor from u-he. With rich feature set and an "everything at your fingertips" interface, Presswerk is well suited for a large range of sound shaping tasks. Presswerk blends the tone and warmth of classic hardware models with modern touches to create a compressor rich in musical soul, but still packs a punch.
3 different detection topologies:
feed-forward: more modern style and precise.
feed-back: more classic style and musical.
interactive (mixture of feed-back and feed-forward).
Dual channel (stereo) or two independent channels - control values can be set for both channels or each channel independently.
6 views for specific jobs, faster work flow:
M/S Program Compressor.
M/S (Mid-Side) mode - for more detailed stereo processing and delicate mastering tasks.
DPR (Dual Phase Rotation) mode - creates an emulation of classic outboard gear phase response by rotating lower and mid frequencies at input and output stages.
Adjustable Soft Knee.
Compression Ratio - from 1:1 to 20:1.
Adjustable Non Linear control - simulates the behaviour of specific compressors or gain-reduction circuits.
Full envelope control - adjustment the attack, release, RMS window.
Sidechain ready with 6 / 12 dB high pass & low pass filters.
Pre or post compression stage saturation with variable "warmth" (tilt filter style) and "dynamics" to model the distortion behaviour of the FET-based voltage dividers from classic devices.
Internal parallel compression.
Dry / Wet mix controls with high pass filter and expand options.
