Crunchessor is a general-purpose track compressor in PC VST plug-in format designed for easy tuning. In addition to the compression stage, Crunchessor features a valve-type processor which is applied in parallel to compression, for adding "analog" feel and warmness.
Crunchessor offers a selection of compression coloration styles. By choosing an appropriate coloration style, you can add a character most suitable for the program material you are working with. As an option, you can disable both coloration and valve warming processing to get a neutral and clean compression sound.
