Cakewalk has announced the PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor Module for SONAR X1 Producer Expanded customers. Here’s how Cakewalk describes the new module in their own words…
The PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor Module, like all the SONAR X1 Producer ProChannel modules, is expertly-crafted by the Cakewalk DSP team to provide the sound and experience of using the legendary hardware it’s based on. The PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor, with its gentle, soft-knee characteristics is well suited for compressing and leveling sustained material on any backing track. Flexible drag and drop routing and manual output gain control lends a modern twist to an old classic. The PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor is a complimentary addition to the well thought out collection of ProChannel module effects designed to elevate any music production.
When coupled with the included PC4K S-Type Bus Compressor, the included ProChannel EQ (set to Vintage), and the optional PC4K S-Type Expander/Gate, the new PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor provides full emulation of classic, large-format, mixing consoles used by professional engineers to make hit records for over a quarter century.

SONAR X1 Producer’s ProChannel console strip already provides a number of options to get pro-studio sound in the box with its highly musical EQ, PC76 U-Type/classic FET and PC4K S-Type bus compressors, tube saturation, and flexible drag & drop routing. ProChannel strips can be customized to have any combination of installed modules available on any channel and favorite combinations can be set as default for tracks and busses.
