Somehow, this plugin went off my radar 😉 Density mkIII is a versatile stereo bus compressor. The latest (well, it was released during 2012 holiday 🙂 ) mkIII version brings many changes and improvements.
During the last two years or so Ive received quite a lot of feedback to the Density mkII release mostly coming from mastering engineers on how to improve its dynamic response towards todays mastering needs. Some very early efforts did not made it but with the learnings from the ThrillseekerLA compressor design and the emerging stateful saturation approach everything was possible, all of a sudden.
The mkIII version of this compressor introduces quite a lot and deep optimizations of the compressor engine especially but not limited for its use in audio mastering situations. The transient response is spot on now over the entire spectrum and it creates sonic depth and dimension: It renders audio like a three-dimensional image. This feature is very much supported by stateful saturation, which is also included now and appears on the stage as a brand new developed VCA color model and can be dialed in to taste.
With Density mkIII not only transients are managed in a musical and mastering grade fashion it also renders a three-dimensional audio image, which truly supports perceived depth and dimension.
If you’re not sure about the quality of this plugin – read comments on official website 🙂
