The Best Free VST Effects - Compressor:
Audio production software for mastering, mixing, and music composing:
Customized compression curves
MCompressor from Melda Production is a very flexible RMS- and peak compressor VST. It offers hard, linear, and smooth knee with adjustable size, signal strength maximization to 0 dB, and side-chain EQ with high- and low-pass filtering. The best feature of the MCompressor plug-in is perhaps the very useful display with a graphical representation of the compression envelope, and the possibility to draw your own customized compression curves. A professional VST effect with a superb sound!
Compressor with punch!
The freeware compressor GComp from GVST offers RMS- and peak compression, stereo linking between the left and right channel (great for mixing), and knee adjustment. The display provides visual feedback of the compression envelope and it even has a graphic time domain view that lets you monitor exactly how the applied compression affects the signal. This VST compressor plug-in adds a lot of punch and energy to the sound, breathing life into even the dullest mix out there!
Sidechain VST compressor
The Compressive Pro by Martin Eastwood is a free audio compressor plug-in featuring, RMS compression, internal and external sidechains (requires a VST 3.0 ready host), and vintage valve emulation to add analogue warmth to your mix. This VST compressor can provide everything from heavy pumping to subtle signal attenuation!
Compressor with a bite
Blockfish by Digital Fish Phones is a free compressor VST plugin with countless ways to shape the incoming audio signal. Unlike many other software compressor plugins, Blockfish has it's own distinct sound. It likes to bite, but it can be tamed easily once you've learned how to use its potential. The Blockfish compressor is by no means the most transparent freeware software compressor out there, but sometimes that's exactly what you are looking for!
