De­scrib­ing your plugin as “the sweet­est ITB com­pres­sor, pe­riod” is a bold move. In fact, Kush reckon their new ana­logue­mod­elled ‘vari­tone tube com­pres­sor’ could only ex­ist in the box, since it bor­rows from so many fun­da­men­tally in­com­pat­i­ble hard­ware topolo­gies. In­trigu­ing stuff! For No­va­tron’s at­tack and re­lease stages, Kush have melded the re­sponses of three clas­sic cir­cuits. Set them slow for vari-mu tube “thump”; medium for VCA punch; fast for FET-style drive and lev­el­ling ef­fects; or any points in be­tween to blend and com­bine th­ese re­sponses.

Com­pres­sion Mode can be set to Mix, Limit or Pun­ish, con­fig­ur­ing the ra­tio, knee, re­lease ta­per and out­put trans­former char­ac­ter. Tone Shift ap­plies Airy or Dark pre-/post-em­pha­sis EQ curves to ‘voice’ the com­pres­sion fur­ther – set it Flat to dis­able. Fur­ther features in­clude in­put/out­put trans­form­ers, sidechain high-pass fil­ter, ex­ter­nal sidechain­ing, and over­sam­pling. No­va­tron is out now, priced $149.
