FabFilter Pro-C 2 Help
There is one signal-processing tool that is almost impossible to do without in any form of audio recording or post-production: compression. Compression is available in a wide variety of different formats, flavors, designs and degrees of quirkiness.
FabFilter Pro-C 2 is not just a good sounding compressor. FabFilter Pro-C 2 is a superb stereo compressor with all the tricks up its sleeve that you will ever need. With its different compression styles and options like mid/side compression and side-chaining with optional EQ filtering, it can work in any desired way. Whether mastering or mixing, Pro-C 2 will do the job with lots of style.
When you open Pro-C 2 for the first time, you'll notice right away that it has a brand new look. With its gorgeous, resizable interface, optional level display, knee display and side-chain EQ controller, it can either take the form of a classic, straightforward analog compressor, or present itself as a modern allround compressor with extensive metering and controls. It's up to you!
Of course, apart from the new look and feel, we've also added many often-requested new features. Most importantly, FabFilter Pro-C 2 introduces five brand new compression styles, in addition to the three original v1 styles. With their unique characteristics, it's like getting five brand new compressors!
But of course, it doesn't stop there. We've implemented a ton of other improvements:
Upgrading from Pro-C version 1 to the new Pro-C 2 is safe and easy: installing Pro-C 2 will not replace or delete the previous Pro-C 1 plug-in. Both versions will co-exist and can both be used at the same time. This ensures that you can open old songs that use Pro-C 1 without problems! FabFilter Pro-C 2 opens presets from Pro-C 1 without problems, but note that the resulting sound can be different, because of fundamental changes and improvements in Pro-C 2. See Upgrading to Pro-C 2 for more information.
