Voxengo Releases Version 1.6 of Crunchessor

Version update 1.6 for Crunchessor--a general-purpose track compressor PC VST plug-in--is now available for download. Crunchessor was designed to be easy to tune while providing valve-type processing which is applied in parallel to compression.

Version 1.6 features several important improvements: side-chaining support has been fully reimplemented. It is now possible to use a wide range of various side-chain channel combinations. Also, the plug-in now automatically detects side-chain support availability within the host. However, if the plug-in was unable to detect side-chain support you may still enable it manually. Side-chain monitoring now passes side-chain signal processed by the Filter option (i.e. as it is actually passed to the compression stage).

This version also features more useful filter options; attack range of compressor has been increased to 400 ms; release range increased to 8000 ms.
