audioD3CK has released ChopChop, a compressor for Mac and Windows. They say that ChopChop's algorithm was originally designed to be reasonably clean while operating with a very fast attack time and classic peak detection, resulting in a very flexible compressor with a distinct sound.
A spokesperson told us "ChopChop is best used when the compression is meant to be heard, but it can act as an invisible tool too. It offers a rich feature set presented on a very simple user interface, designed for a optimal workflow. Distinct features like the adjustable range knee or the release acceleration control distinguish it form other compressors. Lastly, its external side-chain allows ChopChop to duck tracks or tame fighting frequencies, which might come in handy at any time!"
