Impresser was modeled after one of the most flexible, powerful and edgy compressors known to the audio world. Its signature sound is due to a unique analog design and a very special feature set. Impresser offers the best of classic vintage compression while adding a wider range of control options. This vintage unit, now recreated by the powerful Antelope Audio FPGA engine, can handle it all. Impresser can add gentle and warm compression to your tracks or aggressively pump up any source audio.
Stereo Knee Compressor/Limiter
The flexibility of Impresser is aided by the addition of its own harmonic distortion. This can be used for subtle, tube-quality distortion and even in place of a tape saturator. It works its magic with or without the Impresser compressing the signal. Our own contribution to the effect are the adjustable frequency settings for the High and Band Pass Sidechain Filters. This enables even deeper control when shaping the frequency range for where you need the Impresser to work. Like all Antelope Audio FPGA compressor models, you can use the Impresser either in mono, or with two channels stereo linked.
