GTX - Vintage RMS compressor
GTX is a vintage RMS compressor, designed like its muscle car name-sake for brute power, pure speed and to make a loud noise.

It has everything you’d expect in a thorough-bred compressor, but tuned for maximum control and ease of use, with its own unique vintage colouring on top. Unlike the peak compression of GTO, it has a smoother RMS delivery and also has further refinement in the shape of a knee control. It has a super-fast attack and release and a wide range of threshold, ratio and output boost, so it can cover everything from subtle correction to death-by-compression, with everything in between. It also has an adjustable RMS window for customised response and a knee setting to add further refinement. With an external sidechain, wet/dry mix for NY compression and a hard limiter too, you can really push this baby to get pumping bass and block-rockin’ beats. The metering covers input, output and gain reduction, showing real-time and peak levels.
  • Vintage style RMS compressor with adjustable RMS and knee, external sidechain, parallel compression and comprehensive metering.
  • Subtle colouring from a home-made blend of harmonics, saturation and noise.
  • RMS window can be set for smooth cruising or sharp response.
  • Knee amount can be changed from gentle curve to sharp edge.
  • Wet/Dry mix control allows blending of dry uncompressed signal for NY style parallel compression.
  • Choice of 2 attack/release curves.
  • Stereo input detection can be linked or unlinked.
  • Distortion reduction for very short release times.
  • Internal or external sidechain routing.
  • Additional 'Internal sidechain only' versions.
  • Optional hard limiting on final output.
  • Metering covers stereo input, output and gain reduction. All meters show actual and peak levels.
  • Adjustable peak meter hold time.
  • Non-linear knobs for precise control at small values.
  • Presets covering all functions and different configurations.

Ahh, this is really good actually. I tried it on my Uplifting Trance kick and it's more prominent now and does not harm other instruments. Nice!
