Main Features

A Family Matter: Denise Audio

Clearly, the practical and easy to use interface is instantly recognizable from other Denise plugins. For instance, in the main interface you can visualize a display graph with the audio signal. In addition, a couple of sliders below will give you the chance to manipulate sound. Finally, at the bottom of the interface, there are more parameters that will enable you to tweak your sound.

Furthermore, Dragon Fire comes with various presets for a variety of uses. As an example, some of them are specific for bass, vocals, drums, or guitars.

Dragon Fire, The One (Compressor)

With the frequency node you can select the amount of compression you want to apply to a specific frequency band. With Denise’s shape technology, you can adjust RMS to find a soft spot. You can also interval from a fast and slow releases to control the global saturation potentially applied. The Dragon Fire also features a transparent clipper function to add at the end for signal chain. Similarly useful, a helping hand option permits the compressor to enter single-band mode.

As Denise Audio itself states, after Dragon Fire there is no need for any other only compressor.
