Buying Choices

Unfiltered Audio believes that Zip is not just your average compressor. They say that, while it can smash your drum overheads or add attitude to your vocals, it truly shines where no compressor has shone before. Six analysis algorithms including modes like 'Brightness' and 'Quietness' make the compressor sensitive to different sonic characteristics, allowing you to tailor the dynamics of your sound to its unique composition. An onboard modulation system controls parameters in real time, delivering effects like auto-ducking, intermittent saturation, and rhythmic gating.

Among Zip's features:

  • Unique Analysis modes and state-of-the-art modulation system turn Zip's compressor and expander into tools for creating riveting effects and solving difficult audio challenges
  • Six Analysis modes--Amplitude, Quietness, Brightness, Darkness, Noisiness and Tonalness--make Zip's processors react more to signal level, frequency content or noise
  • Four envelope styles--Classic, Goopy, Quick and Extreme--modify Zip's attack and release curves, providing a selection of four differently behaving compressor/expanders in one plugin
  • Unfiltered Audio's flagship patchable modulation system provides eight different internal modulators, including ROLI Lightpad integration, allowing almost any of Zip's controls to be easily modulated
  • Modulators include Sine, Sawtooth/Triangle and Square LFOs; Input Follower; Macro Control; Sample and Hold Noise; Step Sequencer; ROLI Lightpad; and Gain Reduction
