Hornet Fat-FET - FREE compressor plugin VST/AU

Free with Computer Music magazine, Hornet Fat-FET is a compressor plugin with phat, analogue-style dynamics based on the classic UREI 1176LN compressor/limiter, famed for its FET (Field Effect Transistor) characteristics.

Here's what you get in Fat-FET:

  • Analogue-style dynamics based on classic 1176 FET compression
  • Optional High Quality oversampling mode for even better sound
  • Ultra-fast attack times, down to just 0.02ms!
  • Fully adjustable threshold (unlike fixed threshold on 1176)
  • Sweepable ratio (unlike button-based selection on 1176)
  • Input/Output metering
  • Gain reduction metering
  • 32-/64-bit Mac AU/VST
  • 32-/64-bit PC VST
