- Smash is based on several FET style compressors. This side of the compressor helps to give your drums length, weight and size. Perfect for snares, rooms, and your parallel bus.
- Grab is based on several VCA style compressors. This side of the compressor helps to give your drums impact, and attack. Great for shaping kicks, toms and controlling overheads.
- The drum type knob is a very simple yet powerful control. Each drum is optimized for it's particular style, taking the headache out of finding the right settings, compressor, EQ points and more!
- The beef control is a pre-compressor EQ, used to add a little more weight to your drums. The EQ points change in relation to the drum type selected.
- The air control is a post-compressor EQ, used to add clarity and sheen. The EQ points change in relation to the drum type selected.
- The saturation control is extremely versatile, allowing for soft clipping, to pure distortion. Great for shaping your drums, and helping them cut through the mix.
