FireFly (Compressor) by SoundSpot (Plugin Review)

Firefly is a simple compressor tool by Soundspot, and it is not only the cheapest of all in this list but also a super low-on CPU load plugin; plug, play, and no hassle.

The main focus of Firefly is the control of an audio transient and stereo image.

Upcoming producers get the notion of compressor wrong most times, not every audio needs compression!

The transient helps to determine if compression is useful or not. If there are lots of random peaks, and you would love to tailor or unify the audio signal, then by using Firefly Compressor, you would be able to optimize and enhance your track's transients.

Another great feature of this super simple compressor is the support of a sidechain filter for compressing tracks, say you want to create a ducking effect or you want a Kick presence in a Drop (Chorus).

In addition to the aforementioned features,  FireFly gives you a flexible and intuitive way of compressing whole bus tracks or even a master channel.
