FabFilter has released Pro-C 2, the second edition of its hugely popular compressor plug-in.
Originally lauded for its superb visual feedback, version 2 builds on this with an updated Retina interface.
It's not all about the looks of course; the new version features a Audition Triggering option, which enables users to hear which parts of the audio Pro-C 2 is triggering on and exactly how much compression is taking place.
Other new features include:
- Five new compression styles: Vocal, Mastering, Bus, Punch and Pumping
- Additional adjustable filter in the Side-chain EQ section
- Smooth lookahead (up to 20 ms), which can be enabled/disabled to ensure zero latency processing
- Custom knee, variable from hard knee to a 72 dB soft knee (to enable saturation-like effects)
- Hold (up to 500 ms)
- Up to 4x oversampling
This new edition is available in VST, VST3, Audio Units, AAX Native and AudioSuite formats (all both 64-bit and 32-bit), as well as RTAS (32-bit only).
FabFilter Pro-C 2 is out now for £114. Purchase and download options are available on the FabFilter website.
