A 1980s classic, the SMT-100A is among the easiest compressor effects to learn. Yet, this ease of use doesn’t come at the cost of effectiveness or sound! For over 30 years now, the original unit this plugin is modeled after, has remained a top choice by the pros for its fast attack times and its ability to do a great job with vocals, drums, and bass. For its FPGA-driven replica, we worked hard to painstakingly preserve both the special sound of the SMT-100A and its simplistic design and control set. This way, you can focus on getting the sound you want quickly, without much of a learning curve.
