RMS Detection

Emulates RMS detection circuitry to create short sharp transients before hard hitting compression kicks in.

Intelligent Envelopes

No need to think about attack and release settings, the automatic envelopes result in the most colourful sound possible.

Ratio Variety

A range of ratio settings: expansion and gating, standard compression, infinite limiting compression and negative over-compression.

Sidechain Control

Focus the compression using sidechain filtering and/or rhythmically trigger it using external sidechain sources.

Add Colour

Bring down the compressors headroom by using the colour control to add some tasty harmonic grit. New in v1.1

If you want your tracks to be energetic, in-your-face and bold, make 'em "Schlap". Schlap is a characterful, colourful and aggressive sounding program-dependent compressor. It takes inspiration from hardware RMS compressors of the past and evolves them into a modern setting.

The compressor uses a program-dependent attack and release influenced by old hardware making the compression sound characterful and dynamic. The RMS detection means that Schlap detects the average loudness of a signal, resulting in sudden short peaks being uncompressed so that they can attack hard and sound heavy hitting. Also inherently in RMS detection, there is a slight delay in compression which allows the initial, early transients to sneak through uncompressed so they keep their punch.

You've got a safe, controlled track you think you're happy with, but you have to ask yourself... "Does it Schlap?"

Mixing Tips

Best Compressor Plugins

"The best way to make your tracks bold and energetic is to give them the "Schlap" treatment. It gives sounds a certain pump and makes them sound aggressive, thick, boomy, and thick."
