The HMD Rosetta Compressor was designed to translate your sonic desires into actionable language. Instead of using the traditional terms like attack and release, we use words that actually correlate with the characteristics we want such as tight, open or aggressive. The waveform GUI will help you see what your doing to the audio with the parameters. Helping you to make better decisions. HMD Rosetta compressor can help guide you in learning how to use compression as well as break bad habits that we've developed. This compressor will speed up your workflow and show you the way.
