TORQUE - Multiband Compressor


Powerful dynamics processor for production and performance.


As modern electronic musicians and producers, we are increasingly working outside the box, combining both computer-based DAWs with new and vintage gear to get the sounds we want. Although plugins offer flexibility in mixing and mastering, the hands-on feel and low-latency of dedicated hardware is impossible to beat. We are proud to offer TORQUE, featuring great sounding and flexible compression in a small, portable package. For use in the studio or on stage, TORQUE has a fast and intuitive user interface and excellent compression algorithms suited to a wide variety of sources.

TORQUE is part of our new line of powerful desktop music machines designed to offer studio-grade effects in rugged, portable units. Designed to complement synths, drum machines, DJ tools and computer-based audio interfaces, TORQUE integrates perfectly into the modern studio or performance setup.
