Schlap is a characterful, colourful and aggressive sounding program-dependent AUv3, IAA & standalone compressor. It takes inspiration from hardware RMS compressors of the past and evolves them into a modern setting. If you want your tracks to be energetic, in-your-face and bold, make ‘em ‘Schlap’.
The compressor uses a program-dependent attack and release influenced by old hardware which makes the compression sound characterful and dynamic.
The RMS detection means that Schlap detects the average loudness of a signal, resulting in sudden short peaks being uncompressed so that they can attack hard and sound heavy hitting. Also inherently in RMS detection, there is a slight delay in compression which allows the initial, early transients to sneak through uncompressed so they keep their punch.
You’ve got a safe, controlled track you think you’re happy with, but you have to ask yourself… ‘Does it Schlap?’
Schlap is both a stand-alone application as well as an AUv3 plugin, meaning it works within iOS and iPadOS hosts such as GarageBand.
