TDR Kotelnikov is a mastering compressor that acts nicely but as powerfully as you would like on signal sources. One of the key reasons for this is its 64bit multi-rate processing. It seems to not take up too much processor power and memory when I use it on several channels in FL Studio 12.
To quote Tokyo Dawn Records’ website:
“TDR Kotelnikov is a wideband dynamics processor combining high fidelity dynamic range control with deep musical flexibility. As a descendant of the venerable TDR Feedback Compressor product family, Kotelnikov has directly inherited several unique features. Such as a proven control scheme, individual release control for peak and RMS content, an intuitive user interface, and powerful, state of the art, high-precision algorithms.”
How I use TDR Kotelnikov
I often use TDR Kotelnikov on the master channel. I’ve also used it on vocals, incidentals, lead sounds. Although marketed as a mastering compressor, it doesn’t mean you have to limit it to the master channel 🙂
I’ve also used it for transient shaping. I really like what you can do to a sound. Sometimes I turn to this when I need a bit of extra fullness from a track. I’ve yet to use the sidechain highpass filter. Leave your comments in the reviews if you have!
As a FREE compressor plugin, TDR Kotelnikov is hard to beat. In many scenarios it is certainly as good as many paid ones I’ve used.
