An industry-standard outboard compressor that seamlessly blends vintage warmth with modern versatility.
Designed to fulfil multiple roles, from subtle dynamic control to creative sound shaping, the Distressor bridges the gap between vintage character and contemporary flexibility. Its wide-ranging capabilities make it a go-to solution for studios, live sound, and broadcast applications.
The Distressor boasts eight selectable compression curves, each meticulously designed to offer a distinct sonic signature. From the subtle 1:1 ratio that gently warms up the signal with low-order harmonics, to the aggressive "Nuke" setting that serves as a brick wall limiter, the Distressor provides unparalleled flexibility. The "Opto" setting mimics the smooth, natural compression of an optical compressor, ideal for vocals and acoustic instruments.
Inspired by a unique configuration on the classic UREI LN1176 limiter, the British Mode is an aggressive sound setting that alters the unit's attack and release characteristics. This mode can be applied to any of the ratios, offering a new envelope shape and a more pronounced knee, making it perfect for adding punch to drums or taming transient-heavy material.

For engineers requiring a stereo pair, the Distressor offers the Stereo Image Link feature. This ensures that both left and right channels receive identical compression, maintaining a cohesive and balanced stereo image. This is particularly useful for mastering or when processing stereo program material.
