Summer of Freeware: ATKSideChainCompressor

Let’s start this Summer of Freeware with a stereo sidechain compressor in VST and AU formats for Mac OS X and Windows 32 and 64-bit developed by Matthieu Brucher.

The ATKSideChainCompressor can operate in left/right or Mid/Side mode, with the ability to chain the channels. You can use it for parallel or series compression and the Sidechain channels can drive the gain stage.

The ATKSideChainCompressor GUI offers controls for attack, release, threshold, slope, softness and a makeup gain for each channel, as well as a global dry/wet knob.

The plug-in is waiting for you at Some users did experiment downloading issues, other links are available in the comments.
