IBallRoad Audio ‘DSC/L-01’: A Dual Stereo Compressor/Limiter Plug-in built from a New Algorithm on Ideal Compression Calculation



The American professional audio plug-in developer IBallRoad Audio has released 'DSC/L-01' (version 0.8.0.) — The Dual Stereo Compressor/Limiter plug-in built from a new algorithm on ideal compression calculation. ‘DSC/L-01’ is available as a VST3 and AU (Audio Units) plug-in for PC and Mac. (64-bit only)


The algorithm for ‘DSC/L-01’ was designed on the basis of mathematical arguments of the result by human ear. As a result, IBallRoad Audio developed the ‘Auto Sensitivity Technology’ from this algorithm and this technology leads you to an ideal compression calculation at each point, the way analog audio equipment does without a high load on the CPU. At this point, ‘DSC/L-01’ can bring about a fairly new approach to traditional compression.

Compression itself is a unique way of giving a certain character to audio recordings that are liked by listeners. The team of IBallRoad Audio spent about 8 years in investigating these processes in electrical devices and their behavior to build unique algorithms that were not available for working with audio recordings before. When implementing these algorithms, they focused on maximizing the compression efficiency under all conditions in order to meet listeners’ needs.


The algorithms adopted to ADT (Auto Dynamic Trim) mode of DSC/L-01 allow users to calculate the dynamic trim without statically setting it for each unit of signal processing time. In this mode, the ratio is calculated using a unique formula due to the position of the trigger threshold knobs and increasing the gain of the input signal. ADT mode leads you to an ideal compression at each point, so you no longer need to set the dynamic trim manually.

The DSC/L-01 is a double stereo compressor, so you can configure each channel individually as you like, or both channels at once. Also, if your signal does not have enough or too much input volume, it is possible to increase or decrease the volume both on the input and output separately. In addition, DSC/L-01 has minimum signal distortion, and this is useful whenever you just need to compress your sound or compare the compression with and without a preamp in the signal.




  • ADT (Auto Dynamic Trim)

Auto Sensitivity Technology leads you to an ideal compression calculation at each point, the way analog equipment does without a high load on the CPU

  • LINK

You can compress each channel separately both stereo and dual-mono, giving your music the best sound and therefore combine the settings of both channels or use different settings for each channel via LINK button

  • LR/MS Side-Chain

Processing of the side-chain: both the Left and Right channels, and the Mid and Side components

  • LP/HP Filters

Filters give you all the functionality you’d expect from a professional filter, but with an extra feature: control of cutoff frequency


Play with STATE in such a way as to pick up more precise settings, thanks to the intuitive interface, it’s much easier to do this than you think

  • Oversampling

Thanks to the DSC/L-01 algorithms, IBallRoad engineers increased the oversampling rate for each channel separately, but it creates a very positive effect

  • Plug-in Formats (64-bit only): VST3 and Audio Units (AU)
  • Supported Sample Rates: Minimum 44.1 kHz, Maximum 192 kHz



System Requirements

About 'IBallRoad Audio' (

IBallRoad Audio was founded in 2013 by an engineer who wanted to prove that people didn’t need to go any roadside - that digital audio plug-ins can be better, quicker, and yield more results than we have today. In 2019, two more talented engineers joined the company and started making audio plug-ins based on complex mathematics for transferring analog electronic to digital audio. Today, IBallRoad Audio builds not only digital audio plug-ins but also infinitely scalable products for professional information protection.
