The future is Automatic.

AutomaticDynamic is a digital audio compressor that calibrates its threshold and make-up gain automatically. So it’s able to work on a range of source materials without needing a lot of fine-tuning. It tries to stay loudness-matched as you turn the dials, and it stays configured even as your material changes in level.

It also sounds great, due to sophisticated gain-reduction dynamics designed to preserve transients, and a coloration unit that automatically gain-stages itself in order to stay in the sweet spot.


  • Automatic compression threshold—use the "Compression" knob to control how far the threshold rides below the peaks in your signal
  • Adjustable compression ratio (1–4x) and attack/release times
  • Internal sidechain detector filters (no external sidechain)
  • Three compression modes ("A", "B" and "C" buttons)
  • Simple automatic gate with adjustable range up to 6dB
  • Parallel processing via gain-matched dry/wet mix control for compressor and gate (does not affect the Color unit)
  • Subtle saturation stage ("Color" button) with automatic gain-staging (linear-phase oversampling if project sample rate is below 160kHz)
  • Automatic make-up gain to match perceived loudness
  • Mid-side processing (100% unlinked)

How to use

  • Set the release time to best match the groove of your material
  • The Mix dial has a sweet spot at 33% wet
  • Click the gain reduction display for instant A/B test (still uses CPU as if plugin activated)
  • Double-click to reset a dial to its default value, or hold <CTRL>/<CMD> to fine-tune
  • Use AutomaticDynamic on your master bus or on individual audio tracks

Technical notes

  • Available in VST3 format for PC, and VST3 & AU formats for Mac. AAX support coming soon
  • Requires a compatible Digital Audio Workstation or other plugin host
  • ~1ms latency if Color engaged
  • Plugin is designed for common audio signals such as music and voice; may not react meaningfully to artificial test signals such as chirps, impulses or bursts
