Royal Compressor

Inspired by a model of the classic British device from the Beatles era used on hundreds of record since the sixties Royal Compressor delivers true vintage analog sound and feel. Pleasant saturation and sensitive compression is something every track really needs. 

Royal Compressor Key Features

Vari-mu compression

The simulation of the vari-mu circuits delivers warmth and pleasant compression to any kind of audio material. It‘s more than just suitable for vocals, bass, drums on both insert and bus.

Just a few knobs

Back in the analogue days when every mix had to be achieved manually, it was necessary, to keep as few controls as possible. Royal Compressor honours this philosophy. Those few knobs have a massive impact on your sound and deliver the vintage sound and feel almost instantly.

Three circuit types

The A/B/C Model knob offers gives you a chance to switch between three models of circuitry with a different value of the fixed attack.

Automatic gain control

Worry about the volume no more. The AGC keeps the output signal at the same level no matter how much input gain you add to get some serious saturation. Changing colour doesn't change the output volume then.

The saturator

Unlike the original vintage devices, Royal Compressor also features an adjustable amount of valve saturation. The random saturation algorithm creates the effect the real hardware would have on your tracks.


Although Royal Compressor operates using high internal sample rate, the modern simulation technology allows it to deliver great sound using the minimum CPU power.

Second-hand edition for FREE

Even partly broken machines can serve well in many studios. Although their functionality can be limited to just one feature, they may give your records something extra. And that is exactly the case of the second-hand version of our Royal Compressor.

Hassle-free software protection

No iLok, no dongle nor internet access is required for activation. Our software uses licence files to activate your software. You can freely use the purchased software on all your computers as long as you are the user.

Realistic 3D yet flexible GUI

Photorealistic graphic user interface of the plugin gives you the feeling you are touching the real hardware. But it easily adapts to your needs. You can always drag the arrow in the bottom right corner to change its size - make it smaller to save the valuable screen space, or enlarge it to make it easier to use.

15-Days unlimited trial version for FREE

All the descriptions are nothing comparing to putting hands on the plugin yourself. No saving limits. No noises. No boundaries. Engage the plugin in your project for real and fully exploit its powers for two weeks.

64-bit audio quality at ANY sampling rate

The plugin provides the maximum audio quality you can get. It uses internal 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sampling rate. 192 kHz or even higher.

Smart bypass

The intelligent way our plugins manage bypassing ensures that you don't get any click or harmful noises when automating the parameter. It also compensates for latency ensuring that the bypass states are perfectly in sync with each other.

Smash it! Not for the easily offended! A vintage style compressor with extreme qualities, great for anything that you want to feature forward in your mix. I use the most extreme settings on your parallel drum buss!

I was immediately overwhelmed by the stunning overall sound quality and the very well-chosen parameters.

A great emulation of a hardware classic. You’ll find yourself using many instances of Royal Compressor across your mix.

One of the compressors that sits in my template, in different applications. It's one of my secrets used in parallel on lead vocals (Type B!) and is able to confer a euphonic density to the sound that is uncommon in the digital world.
