POWAIR was designed to be a smarter, more natural sounding compressor. It’s a dual-stage loudness leveler / compressor / limiter powered by a novel, proprietary compression engine which provides greater transparency and control than ever before.

The first stage is a K-weighted loudness leveler, perfect for leveling a voice-over or auto-adjusting the level of different pieces of music. In its second compression stage, POWAIR uses an innovative gain detection and reduction engine, capable of fast gain changes with minimal distortion and adaptive response to the source.

The unique Punch feature enables full control over the transients’ levels during the attack stage, making it possible to shape the transients’ lengths while keeping peak levels under control.

And in an industry first, POWAIR features Adaptive Compression to maintain an average compression action, adding intensity and glue while keeping the natural dynamics of the recording.


  • Novel, ultra-fast gain detection and reduction compression design
  • K-weighted loudness auto-leveler
  • Punch enables precise level control of transients during the attack period independent of attack time
  • Adaptive Compression enables maintaining average compression for natural performance dynamics
  • Machine learning-based perceived loudness auto makeup gain compensation
  • Band-pass and band-reject side-chain filter
  • External side-chain key input
  • Mono, stereo and mid/side operation modes with continuously-variable compression link control
  • ITU-R BS.1770.4-compliant LKFS and true-peak output level meters


No iLok Driver is required to run.
Our release loads faster and uses less memory than original.

This is a good example to know how the strong iLok protection (and Meta-
Fortress) ruin the software. v1.1.0 was protected by only WrapWarden, then this minor update v1.1.1 gains stronger protection.

POWAIR VST2 x64 v1.1.0 (R2R) – 4.57MB (All protection has removed)
POWAIR VST2 x64 v1.1.1 (R2R) – 20.2MB (Fusion, MetaFortress)
POWAIR VST2 x64 v1.1.1 (ORIGINAL) – 27.7MB (WrapWarden, Fusion, MetaFortress)

In v1.1.1, thousands of anti tampering checks are inserted. Additional
license check threads are run by protection. Garbage code laids everywhere.

83.5% of this software is DRM. Sounds, very, professional, yes.
