The Pawn Shop Comp 2.0 is a professional tool that will make a huge difference in the quality and impact of your mixes. It sounds great on any sound source and in virtually any application.
More than a compressor, the Pawn Shop Comp also has a fully adjustable tube preamp, a two band equalizer, and swappable components that give you unprecedented control of every parameter of the plugin.
You can use the Pawn Shop Comp on:
Get punch and snap out of individual drums or the entire drum bus. Built in low frequency eq centered at 63Hz, perfect for enhancing the thud of a kick drum. And you can dial in a bit of saturation to mimic the sound of classic FET limiters like the 1176.
Built for bass sounds. Dial in attack to punch the bass through the mix. Set the release to contro sustain and resonance. Throw in some low end equalization to enhance the bottom end, and add some tube style saturation for additional growl.
Killer on electric guitars. Precise control over note articulation and sustain. Adjust the midrange equalization for presence in the mix. Swap in ECC-83 tubes and get vintage amp overdrive and distortion… from a compressor!
The PSC is a vocal channel strip, with almost everything you need to get kick-ass vocals. Get smooth, musical compression, or crush it for color and character. Swap out transformers for tighter or darker response. Add warmth with the preamp, or saturation and drive.
Add color, character and crunch to lead lines, and warmth and harmonic structure to pads. The wide adjustability of the PSC makes it a natural for use with analog or sampled pianos.
Bus compression with the Pawn Shop Comp… yes, it can do this, too. Give your mix or instrument cluster definition and “glue.” Control the amount of effect with the Wet/Dry control for easy parallel processing. Punch up the top and bottom with the PSC’s 2 bands of eq.
Too often, the accordion is overlooked in modern recording… kinda like the cowbell. The Pawn Shop Comp’s preset library is full of places to start when you don’t quite know what you’re dealing with, but know it needs something.
