Whether you are a total beginner or seasoned professional, LOLCOMP with will amaze you!

First Of All: What Is LOLCOMP?

LOLCOMP is a unique audio plugin combining 5 compression modes with multiple effect engines into one beautiful box. The compression modes have been designed by mix engineer legend Ken Lewis, who took 5 of his most-used chains from his daily workflow, and put them into this plugin. That means, at the turn of a dial, you have 5 complete working chains that have been used on many hit records over the years, in one form or another.

Those 5 chains are then supercharged by a section of additional tone-shaping modules to further tailor your sound. The unique arrangement of all these components into one plugin gives you results that you wouldn’t get from any other plugin. Recreating these effects would require many plugins both as inserts and sends, and then manually dialing all of them in so they work together.

LOLCOMP does all that for you so that you get great-sounding results quickly, and in the easiest way possible.
