PSP FETpressor

PSP FETpressor is a FET feedback type compressor plug-in. It’s designed to provide accurate, almost instant compression with lots of character. Great for vocals, guitars, bass, drums, and whenever a classic 1970s-style FET compressor is needed. PSP FETpressor contains everything you’d expect from a FET compressor: an internal side chain high pass filter to control amount of low frequency pumping, smoothly adjustable compression ratio, ability to select which channel to process, and a link switch. This compressor also contains a dry signal blend for parallel compression. Additionally PSP FETpressor contains makeup amplifier and output transformer emulations to add subtle character even when set to 1:1 ratio.

I need another FET compressor like a hole in the head, but it is PSP, so it's probably amazing. Damn!

It reminds me of a hardware Urei LA3A – I just used one recently at Avatar in NYC. I’ve been comparing the PSP FETpressor with some excellent VST compressors and nothing else seems to be able to do what the PSP FETpressor can do.

There is always room for more plug-ins, whenever they are better or at least same quality as the best ones. Price is always important.

This one is really good. PSP is one of the best developers out there. The demo is very easy to obtain; no sign ins, emails, anus exams...or fingerprints....
In addition to that, the saturation on the FET is top notch. Feels very alive. Love it!!!

I bet this will not be the last one released until a plugin really nails the hardware

no look ahead feature so I am curious about the attack behavior, The only plugins with proper attack are those from Softube and Positive Grid

A future subscription model has to be the only reason for producing yet another one of these without something dramatically new to say. Each vendor is going to have to cover most typical mixing scenarios themselves. Most potential customers are not going to be able to afford multiple subs so if you want to capture significant market share you are gonna have to cover most bases, right?

Not surprisingly it sounds great. I think it's more a combination piece than a strict 1176 emulation. It feels like there are elements of other compressors in there too.

Love pushing the output transformer!

PSP are so good. But I think they're a couple of years too late with this, and don't have the hype machine to make everyone feel like they need to go and buy this over the 10,000 other ones out there.

I feel sorry for them because they're probably the best makers of plugins out there (sonically).

nice compressor but still prefer the tone of ik multimedia black 76 in the software world (although shame there is no mix button and sc hpf).

I can see the possibility of fingerprints perhaps, but I hope anus exams never come into play......

Great sounding FET emulation -1176 clone?

1176 or no, PSP has made another great compressor.

A big plus in my book since they added an
  • easy mix knob
  • high pass key input
  • variable ratio
  • linked or unlined inputs
  • smooth sound
  • big drum sounds when pushed

If you already own other PSP vst plugins, you'll get an even bigger discount on purchasing this one. I just compared it to my Waves CLA76, mjuc, and the NI 76 .
This one brings a different tone, especially when pushed.
Pushed or not, very smooth sound. Sounds great on vocals and drums so far.

i tried the demo (PTHD/OSX) and found the mix knob and sidechain didn't work; in fact the parameters had a line through the text. is anyone seeing the same?

God, imagine the poor devs on a group-buy day. Some of the old timers will be like:

"I never signed up for this *%&..! twas never like this in the good old ilok days!


And swiftly but back on topic...: seems an interesting comp indeed, testing it out now on various drums, can get a lot of clean GR going.

Psp is hot right now. E27 is ridiculous how forward the sound is. The naysayers need to give this plug some time, or upgrade their monitors. This is the first time in years i got excited reading about a plug without even trying it. I don't think they need the hype and they know it. PSP is leagues beyond the Waves cpu friendly with comprise in sound quality attitude.
Kush, DMG, PSP. I swear you can blindly buy anything by those dudes and get a rock solid piece of software.

I didn't have any expectation when demoing this, thinking it would be yet another boring 1176 clone. But I have to say that I was very impressed by it. It sounds more clean and modern than the good hardware emulations but at the same time large, fat and organic. I found it behaved much better on the drum bus than the UAD 1176s, much thanks to the side-chain filter.
Seriously tempting to grab this one. It could very well become a go-to compressor for me.
