Squeezer is different from all the compressors I know: its knobs are stepped to fine-tuned preset values, but can be changed to continuous values by clicking a small orange light located next to them. This allows you to find nice settings fast while not preventing optimisation of settings.

Squeezer adapts easily to many tastes and use cases:

  • feed-forward & feed-back design
  • linear, logarithmic & smooth release stage
  • optical & FET detectors
  • peak & RMS sensing
  • hard, medium & soft knee
  • flexible side-chain & parallel compression
