Pro Tools Expert - Friday Free Plug-in - HoRNet CompExp

Friday Free Plug-in - HoRNet CompExp

In this week's Friday Free Plug-in, we are featuring the second of two plug-ins from HoRNet, their CompExp plug-in. 

HoRNet CompExp is a compressor expander based on the design of a commander chip designed for telephone lines and used in many electronic devices to reduce the noise.

The chip works with a fixed threshold and HoRNet has set the plug-in internally set to -18dBFS, when the “amount” knob is at a value greater than 1 the gain is increased by the specified factor.  If the signal is below the threshold and decreased if above. If the chip is set to work as an expander, the contrary happens, the gain is increased if above the threshold and decreased if below.

The system is designed for dynamic compression on telephone lines and compressor and expander are used together in this configuration, but HoRNet has found that these models sound interesting by themselves.

Internally the gain is compensated so that the output is always kept to around -18dB RMS
