Swedish app maker Klevgrand has added a compressor / limiter, Korvpressor, to their app lineup.
Korv is Swedish for sausage, and the Korvpressor has packed a fairly sophisticated set of algorithms into a super-simple user interface, that they’re calling a “smart, dynamic hotdog device.”
App developers explain how Korvpressor works:
“The controls are minimal – set the input gain, level of compression, and the output gain. However, don’t be mislead by this simplicity. Under the hood is a sophisticated set of algorithms, developed together with a team from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. The compression algorithm was designed with transparency in mind, and Korvpressor will sound great on almost any kind of sound; all from a vocal track to a full blown mix. If you push it even harder, it gives a nice squeezing effect.”
Besides the compression unit, there are three controls for low, mid and high frequency gains.
Compatible for use with the iPad (IAA and AudioBus compatible), AU (Mac plug-in demo available), VST & VST3 (Mac & Windows plug-in, demo available).
