This latest Max for Cats release coincides with Charlie's birthday, my cat who inspired the name. TriComp is a Max for Live multiband compressor that allows for flexible sidechaining of the three variable frequency bands individually. This gives you more precision in controlling the dynamic of the audio signal as well as interesting possibilities for sound design.

Check out the demo:

 

Besides the usual features of a multi band compressor like ratio, threshold, knee, attack, release or makeup gain, TriComp also has features that make sculpting the sound more powerful and effective.

TriComp Features:

  • SideChain routing and level meter
  • SideChain activator per band
  • Frequency Spectrum Display
  • Hi and Low Splits
  • Frequency band mute switches
  • White noise activation
  • Input, output and sidechain gains
