This makes Crunchessor an ideal choice for musicians and producers who are fond of analog compression sound and its warmness.
Beside this, Crunchessor offers you a selection of compression coloration styles--by itself a pretty unique feature for a compressor. By choosing an appropriate coloration style, you can add the character most suitable for the sound material you are working with. As an option, you can disable both coloration and valve warming processing to get a neutral and clean compression sound.
Crunchessor also accepts external side-chain source signals and allows you to filter key signal sources before they are used for compression. Full multi-channel operation is supported.
Being a general-purpose compressor, Crunchessor can be used for any kind of sound material: bass, guitars, drums, vocals, synth sounds, etc. Crunchessor can be suitable both for single track and whole mix processing.
