The Empirical Labs Arousor is a software plug-in audio Compressor, that was designed to finally offer the sound and features from our own award winning compressors, most notably, the Distressor. Download version.
NEW REV 3.1:
- New Stereo Link Options – Users now have four versatile choices.
- Image Link – (Original Arousor stereo link method) Locks LR Gain Reduction so stereo image cannot shift.
- Phase Link – (Original Distressor Link) Sums LR Audio for phase detection, but does not lock LR Gain Reduction.
- Hybrid Link – (Combines both Image and Phase Link) Locks L/R Gain Reduction, but compensates for phase.
- None – Each channel compresses independently, but share the same compressor settings.
- A-B Compare – You can now A-B compare two settings on an Arousor instance making it risk free to experiment.
- Compensating input output gain. Holding shift while adjusting Input gain decreases Output gain by same amount and vice-versa.
- Two New Presets from Customers: DibS Bass + DibS Drum Rm Squash
- OPTO A-B was renamed to OPTO 1-2 to prevent current and future confusion with new A-B Compare function. (OPTO sound hasn’t changed)
- Resize GUI is now persistent across instances.
- New tool tips and updated help menu to help navigate new and old features.
- Minor Bug Fixes reported on Rev 3.0
- Now available with Native Apple Silicon systems
