The THR (The Home Recordings) FreeComp is our first plugin release which is 100% free and mainly aimed at beginner music producers since it only features a handful of controls and is designed with the idea of not being too overwhelming.

It’s got a fairly gentle compression ratio, which allows you to really drive the compressor hard without completely squashing the signal, and features some basic compression/dynamics controls:

  • Threshold: Turning this knob to the left reduces the threshold and applies compression.
  • Dynamics Section: Here you will find two attack and two release controls which will set the compressor to either have a fast or slow attack, and fast or slow release, and that’s it!
  • Auto Makeup: A feature that’s generally missing in a lot of compressors is the automatic gain makeup which allows you to very quickly dial in compression without having to worry about the levels dropping.
  • Output: This is the gain compensation, or makeup, module. Here you can control the volume level that’s being output after applying compression.
  • Metering: The THR FreeComp offers right and left output metering (as seen on the right-hand side of the plugin), and a ‘Compression’ meter that indicates how much compression is being applied to the signal, which is represented as a moving circle around the threshold Knob (every white line represents 3dB of gain reduction).

What the FreeComp was designed for:

The sole intention of creating the FreeComp is to help people who are just getting started with music production not feel overwhelmed when looking at a compressor’s interface that has dozens of controls and to let them use just a handful of parameters to get the sound they are looking for much quicker.

This is not just useful for learning how to use compression but also for working fast.

How does it sound?

The THR FreeComp is designed to be as transparent-sounding as possible and not at all reminiscent of any of the old hardware units which add their own flavor, making it a good choice for almost any kind of music, and since it’s got a fairly low ratio, the compression applied is also quite gentle.
