Punch Compressor

Punch - Based on the world's most famous compressor

Punch is one of Minimal System Instruments most popular plugins as it is an up-to-date version of one of the all time classic analogue compression and limiting processors, the 1176.

The original 1176 was a major game changer when it was introduced. With its all-transistor circuitry and FET gain reduction it provided bags of character and performed fantastically well. Since its introduction the 1176 has added 'Punch' to some of the greatest tracks of all time across a mass of genres.

Our Punch 1176 emulation accurately models the original hardware and offers all the character and flexibility at a fraction of the price. Punch uses an array of ratio's including 2:1, 4:1, and 8:1 perfect for compression duties - then there is also the 20:1 ratio designed for full limiting applications. With a professionally designed interface aiding usability and unrivalled versatility Punch is a studio tool that you should not be without.
