The Renaissance Compressor is often confused for an 1176 or LA-2A emulation due to the familiar sound from the Electro and Opto behavior controls, but it’s actually a combination of the C1-Compressor/Gate and the famed L1 Ultramaximizer technologies. It combines a variable release mode with “character” and “behavior” controls to allow users to dial in the perfect type of compression.

For instance, “Opto-mode provides fast release times when the gain reduction is above 3dB, and progressively slower release times as gain reduction falls below 3dB. Electro-mode has the opposite characteristic. Electro-mode provides very fast release times when the gain reduction is less than 3dB and an overall slower behavior when gain reduction is above 3dB.”

R Vox provides an easy-to-adjust, stripped down version to help users achieve great sound quickly. H-Comp, on the other hand, provides a more sophisticated approach and combines the modeled behavior of transformers, tubes, and transistors, together with the power and precision that only a plugin can provide.
