PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor for Sonar X1 Producer Expanded

Cakewalk unveils the new PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor which adds vintage compression to every channel strip of Sonar X1 Producer Expanded.

The PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor is another Sonar X1 Producer ProChannel module which Cakewalk takes pride in. It features a genuine feel and sound that mimics the popular channel strip compressor that it was based on.


It has a gentle soft knee flavor which works well for compressing and leveling any music production material. It has an easy to use interface where you can drag and drop the routing, and it also gives you a modern twist to the classic by adding a manual output gain control.

The PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor compliments the other Cakewalk produced ProChannel module effects very well. Couple it with the PC4K S-Type Bus Compressor and Expander/Gate while you set the included ProChannel EQ to Vintage - what you get is an emulation of vintage mixing consoles that were widely used to make hit records in the past.

The PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor is meant to work with Sonar X1 Producer Expanded.
