Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Amazing System 5 Compression!

NOTE: This product requires an iLok (not included) for authorization. Please call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer if you have questions.

Avid's Pro Compressor AAX plug-in gives your Pro Tools rig the high-quality dynamics control you need to polish up your tracks. Whether you're running Pro Compressor AAX on individual tracks, submixes, or even entire multichannel buses, you'll be thrilled by the results you'll achieve. This incredibly flexible compressor gives you five compression modes, powerful sidechain targeting, and even parallel signal blending, yet it's one of the easiest comprehensive dynamic plug-ins you'll come across. And with special AAX DSP optimization, Avid's Pro Compressor AAX is a perfect fit for your Pro Tools|HDX rig!

AAX: The Future of Pro Tools Plug-in Technology!

The AAX (Avid Audio eXtension) plug-in format completely changed the game for Pro Tools. In addition to rocketing Pro Tools plug-ins into the 64-bit world, this remarkable new plug-in format makes it easier than ever for developers to create quality plug-ins. What's more the two AAX formats (AAX Native and AAX DSP) sound nearly identical, making it easier than ever to transfer your projects between Pro Tools|HDX systems and natively hosted Pro Tools systems.

Avid Pro Compressor AAX Compression Plug-in Features:
  • An amazing dynamic plug-in based on the compressor from the world-Class Avid System 5 console
  • Perfect for mono and multichannel material
  • Loaded with four advanced compression detectors: Average, Peak, Fast Peak, and RMS
  • Unique SMART compression mode automatically morphs signals between all four standard compression modes
  • Q with side-chain control lets you target offending frequencies for de-essing, plosive removal, and other frequency-dependent dynamics control
  • Isolate just the gain reduction part of your audio material with the solo function for easy setting adjustment
  • Blend the compressed sound with the unprocessed input for parallel compression
  • PPM metering provides precise and responsive level analysis
  • Front/rear linking mode adds easy processing of surround-sound material
  • AAX DSP optimized for use with massive Pro Tools|HDX mixes
  • Requires Pace iLok USB key for authorization
Add killer compression to your Pro Tools rig with Avid's Avid Pro Compressor AAX compression plug-in!

Easy and in my opinion probably one of the best

This thing just brings your audio up in a way that it blasts through the speakers. Its so easy and the results so good. I have too many Plug In Compressors from waves. They are ok and do the job, but not as good as this one. This is my GO TO compressor. Its a mix and match kind of thing. Some Waves are better than Avid but in this case Avid has Waves beat when it comes to compressors. Not one of my Waves sounds as good as this one.
