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!

The Ultimate Workhorse

There are a lot of amazing compressors out there and at varying prices, but regardless of price, the Renaissance Compressor is a plug-in that will never disappoint or let you down. It's not a character compressor by any means, but you can get a bit of flavor going if you have the "warm" parameter engaged. All in all, this is an amazing compressor with phenomenal transparency, and if you don't have it, then you need to add it to the collection.
