Kush UBK-1 v1.2.4 WIN-AudioAUTOPiA
I did a master class with Michael Brauer, easily one of the most creative mixers ever to lay hands on a console. He told me he wanted me to stop thinking of compression as dynamics control and start thinking of it as a form of movement.

UBK-1 is most definitely the result of taking that advice. I have way too much fun with its squishy mojo, the way it aggressively smacks sounds back into place, making them pump and move like living things.

Not every sound needs to be blown up, so I use the multiple parallel paths for subtle warming and sweetening effects. The headroom knob lets me adjust every stage's intensity at once, making it enjoyable to experiment with all the colors it has to offer... and the UBK-1 has a lot of colors to offer.

Kush Clariphonic DSP-MKII v1.0.0 WIN-AudioUTOPiA Kush Clariphonic DSP-MKII v1.0.0 WIN-AudioUTOPiA
After 3 years of using the original Clariphonic DSP, I'd compiled quite a list of improvements I wanted to make. So I made them all, and the result is the Clariphonic DSP mkII, modeled from the ground up by me using all new algorithms and filters.

To my ears, the mkII sounds markedly smoother than the original, and it's considerably more powerful in use. It has 3 modes: classic Stereo, Dual Mono so I can eq each side differently, or Mid-Side for advanced sweetening.

I overhauled the GUI as well, it's a little easier on the eye and a lot easier to use. Between the smoother sound, the 3 operational modes, and the enhanced interface, I'm more proud of this design than any I've done to date, and that's coming from the guy who recently dropped the Tweaker.

Everyone who bought a new license for the original Clariphonic DSP gets full credit towards the upgrade... even if you bought it 3 years ago, on sale. Go to the Store for instructions. Enjoy!
Kush Pusher v.1.0.9 WIN-AudioUTOPiA Kush Pusher v.1.0.9 WIN-AudioUTOPiA
I didn't design Pusher to handle any specific task or fix any specific problem. I just wanted a plugin that let me texturize sounds by adding unexpected energies and overtones, in a GUI that pretty much forces me to improvise and explore.

I've gotten Pusher to make drums sound like crushing gravel, a direct guitar to sound like a vintage fuzzbox, and a human voice to sound like an alien spectre. From classic to bizarre, I keep finding new ways to distort sounds with Pusher. 

That said, as often as not I instantiate this plugin just to access the diode limiter and use its distinct snap to get things popping more to the front of the mix while taking less space. It has the distinctive 'thump' of my favorite hardware diode limiters, and like the UBK-1 it injects a ton of vibe into ordinary sounds.
Native Instruments Supercharger v1.3.0 Update Incl Patched and Keygen-R2R Native Instruments Supercharger v1.3.0 Update Incl Patched and Keygen-R2R
Soft / VST Instruments 20-12-2015
Supercharger is a versatile compressor effect plug-in delivering warm, colorful, tube-style compression, modeled from a one-of-a-kind hardware unit.

The effect is particularly simple to use, with just a few clearly laid-out controls providing a wide range of sounds from subtle warmth to complete devastation. The input knob and convenient visual display allow producers to set exactly the right input level to drive the compressor. Once the input level is set, producers can quickly dial in a wide range of compression effects using a single 'Compress' knob. The Compress knob is a macro knob, automatically adjusting multiple parameters including make-up gain, the responsiveness of the release control, and the degree of saturation. This means that each position of the dial provides an ideal setting. Punch and Dirt buttons deliver added impact and saturation.

Supercharger complements the existing range of Komplete studio effects with harmonically-rich tube sound, and is optimized for use in Maschine.
Boz Digital Labs Manic Compressor v1.0.3 WiN RETAiL Boz Digital Labs Manic Compressor v1.0.3 WiN RETAiL
Soft / VST Instruments 2-12-2015
Manic Compressor was designed from the beginning to be more than just a compressor. It was designed to unleash the power of parallel compression without requiring complex routing in your DAW.

Even with 6 different compressor modes and a comprehensive parallel routing setup, Manic Compressor uses an intuitive interface to get you way more power from your compressor than you’ve ever had before.

Maximum Parallel Power

Parallel compression is a key ingredient that has been used by top mixers for years, but up until now, it has always required complex routing and increased clutter in your mix project to be able to utilize it on every track. Many compressors have a mix knob for blending the compressed signal with the dry signal, but we have found that this just doesn’t give enough control to really make use of the extensive power of parallel compression.

With individual wet and dry faders, along with an intuitive yet powerful EQ section, it won’t take long to recognize how much you’ve been missing out on. After using Manic Compressor on our projects, we realized that we have been missing out on a whole new world that we didn’t even know existed with compression.

6 Different Compressors

Even with so many good compressors out there, we find that it’s cumbersome to switch back and forth between different compressors with different settings trying to find the exact match for your track. With Manic Compressor, you can quickly switch between 6 different compressors without having to match settings.

Because Manic Compressor was designed from the ground up to be used in parallel, we were able to make some compressor modes that really shine in parallel.

Built for Abuse

With Manic Compressor’s innovative parallel design and Loudness Relief, this compressor was built to be abused. Subtle compression is a thing of that past (unless you want it, of course). Manic Compressor lets you put your settings to maximum carnage and then ease it off with its unique Loudness Relief knob, which softens the compression artifacts even under super heavy load.
