Black Rooster Audio has released their KH-COMP1 compressor plugin, in collaboration with award-winning mix engineer Koen Heldens. Koen is responsible for mixing the most-streamed song in a single day, and has worked with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Dr. Dre, Timbaland, and Missy Elliott. His usual go-to tools were missing some fine-tuning, so he was in need of a very specific, bespoke compressor solution. His ideas of process timing, channel linking and sidechain filtering pushed the Black Rooster Audio team to come up with an entirely new tool. The result is a one-of-a-kind, beast of a compressor, that is up to the standards of one of the greatest producers of the moment, and that includes the best leveling amplifier that Black Rooster Audio has developed to date.
The Black Rooster Audio KH-COMP1 is available now for $139, with an introductory price of $109 “for a limited time only”. It requires macOS 10.9 or later and an AU, VST, or AAX plugin host. BRA says this is the first of a series of collaborations with Koen Heldens.
