The GPP-1 Golden Peak-Pressor is a soft-limiter / peak compressor designed for peak- taming / compression during real-time tracking, sub-tracking and mixing, live or in the studio. It can compress troublesome peaks, soften the sound, and bring out instruments that would have been buried in the final mix.
The Windows plug-in offers five different release types designed for different material and taste. Program dependent envelope times for increased loudness and minimum pumping are also included.
“While most limiters these days seem to be made for maximizing loudness, the GPP-1 works in a much gentler way”, says Torben Larsen, founder of Kjaerhus Audio. “We wanted to design a plugin that would tame the peaks without squelching the sound. Instead of trying to push the RMS level to extreme heights, the GPP-1 can compress the peaks in a gentle and musical way that allows the sound to “breathe”. The result is an open and live sound that hasn't lost all of its dynamics.”
As with the other members of the Gold Series, this plug-in uses 64-bit processing, and supports up to a 192kHz-sampling rate. It has practically no latency, whichmakes it suitable for real time use in the studio or on stage.
The normal price is only $68.00, but the company is offering an introductory price on the GPP-1 of $54.40 (-20%) through November 14, 2004.
