Need that ineffable “special something” whilst Mastering? Mixing?
Want to ANNIHILATE a Drum Room?
Turn a Wimpy Kick Drum into a CANNON?
The D-COMP is a SWISS-ARMY KNIFE compressor with a PROWESS for VERSATILITY.
Effortlessly suited for Mastering Duties just as well as it is for Complete Transient Decimation.
All the while adding class, imbuing unique midrange girth and allowing COMPLETE control over unruly dynamics through it’s novel use of ZENER DIODES; which have a sound unlike any other compression topology out there.
Adding SUPERMAN-style “POINT” and “POKE” to transients has never been easier…
Exaggerate. Decimate. And EVERYTHING in between.

COMPLETE TRANSIENT MANIPULATION.
The D-Comp (also known as the Diode Compressor) was born by starting with a very, very old and vintage (some would say “archaic”) circuit for inspiration and old-school, oft forgotten design aesthetics. During the exhaustive and meticulous R & D stage of the D-Comp; trying to “modernize” the overall topology and sonics of this circuit, we were able to carve out and create something fresh and new that still retained all of the desirable, often quirky aspects of the original vintage unit.
Birthed from our intense, tireless strive for sonic nirvana, is a Diode-Based Compressor that goes boldly beyond it’s origins…
- Mix Buss Compressor? NO PROBLEM.
- Mastering Compressor? Psh. Next Question.
- Swiss Army Knife Compressor? YES. Folks, we have a WINNER!
After much anticipation; we are absolutely elated to present this special creation to the AudioScape Family (past, present and future!)
We spent well over a YEAR….. in the design phase alone. (Don’t even get us started on the layout, discovering and deciding on the perfect marriage of components, design aesthetics; the list goes ON and ON…..)
In the end; The D-Comp not only met, but exceeded our own expectations (which are exceedingly high; but you already knew that ).
What we ended up with is a MONSTER.
The D-Comp can spit out downright BRUTAL compression behavior and tone; whilst always adding a rich, vintage mid range girth.
While on the opposite side of that coin, gently taming peaks, massaging acoustic instruments, etc, couldn’t be any easier.
A Tool of Remarkable Transient Manipulation and Dynamics Control.
The Attack / Release controls coupled with the Sidechain High-Pass Filter allows countless, creative dynamic manipulation and sonic options.
These 3 controls are paramount to any other on the D-Comp (in our biased opinions). Allowing everything from subtle, thick cohesion to full-throttle, blown out dynamic inversion.
…..and anything in between!
