• Innovative digital envelope detection allows for much lower distortion than typical peak compressors, without overshoot or lag
• Optional lookahead FIR gain smoothing for an even cleaner sound
• Shape-able release stage with musical, highly history-dependent behaviour. Avoids use of multiple compressors in series!
• Sidechain hipass filter and external sidechain ability
• Easy stereo options with stereo link and balance
• Mid / side processing mode
• Perceived loudness metering, with easy makeup gain and balance snapping
• Switchable vertical or horizontal gain reduction metering, with adjustable range
• Quick loading of presets, bucket comparison system
• Make it yours, with a resizable GUI, customizable colours and background image!
• Low CPU, fully 64-bit DSP code, making full use of SSE instructions. Insert on every track without a second thought!
• Zero latency with lookahead off. With lookahead on, compensated latency of 1.5ms

Both thrilled that v2 is released, and crushed to find no AAX. Argh!

I’m not sure I can fathom using Patchwork for as many instances as I would like to run in a typical session. Seriously giving me pause at the moment.

Congrats, though... looking forward to more releases from you in the future!

Magic.
Bought, just taking it for a test drive
Looks so good.

Great work Jon and thanks to bManic for first alerting us to JonV audio.

NOTE: First time Logic users - you do have to go through a few hoops to get it to pass AU validation the first time.
The work around is discussed in the Fircomp1 thread.

This is totally understandable. I do hope to release an AAX version eventually, but unfortunately can't say any more than that.

There is now a OSX command file included that should remove the quarantine attribute from the mac versions (run before copying) - unless this file itself gets quarantined. If anyone is having any trouble, email me as before It simply runs the xattr program.

This thing is crazy, love it!
The sound, the feature set and the themes.

The snap makeup is awesome - you did it amazingly. And snap balance - never thought I would need it until now.

Im afraid I might overcompress...

Ah, f$&@ it... I’m buying it.

But I’d rather you still think there is some guy out there crying in front of his rig because there is no AAX support yet. Don’t forget him.

Not sure how I feel about that empty space on the UI - I am not good with asymmetries
Love the website, though. No-nonsense, good old 90s design, without all that big picture and animation nonsense that is sadly so prevalent in today’s web design.
All the information you need easily readable on one page (except maybe what kind of copy protection is used). Brilliant.
Going to test later...

+1 for UI improvements in future updates, as I am pretty sure that won't be tough at all. As the real hardwork is in the sound, which is awesome!!
It is by far the cleanest compression I have heard.
Beats any stock compressor by wide margin.


My next wishlist- to have a similar ultra-clean, high quality, phase-artifacts free, musical EQ (with dynamic control option).


Please..

Great, great news.

First time I bought a vst blindly.

I was already blown away by the first version and I can hardly wait to play with the new one.

Not that I am complaining, but this wonderful compressor is worth a lot more than the current price. A hell of a lot more.

I would agree that it is worth much more. Just because there is nothing like it!

BUT I think it's very wisely priced because this way I would guess you get much more customers.
And the 68837 euros now and 5 dollar sale discount later just does hurt in my opinion.

Congrats, will have to check later if there is a blue GUI

I will instant buy if you plan to do a eq, too

I've been to beta and I'm glad Jon has already released this v2. He has worked very fast!

Regarding the GUI, there are proposals and I'm sure Jon will improve it little by little, but let's face it, the beauty of this compressor is inside: P

Works fine here as AU. No problems with validation.

Though I'm running latest Logic Pro X with latest Big Sur (and on a M1 Mac Mini).

Did you run Logic as Rosetta or Native (in case you have a M1?)?

I thought there was talk of making the meters run horizontally. Seems like it would make better use of that space whilst giving larger and more detailed metering.

Will buy it as soon as I get to the studio. Congrats on the release Jon.
