Introducing POP, the all new dynamics Plug-in from Cut Through Recordings. POP is designed with one goal in mind: give your tracks the pop that they have been missing. POP Sound Shaper is a compressor/clipper combo. It is also great for getting more control over the dynamic range of your track without losing its transients. The compressor is designed to bring out the transients of the signal. It does this by having attack and release times set to let the transients pass and then immediately clamp down on the signal. These times are locked in to make using POP as simple as possible. Set the Amount of compression and set the threshold and you’re done. The compressor is followed by a soft clipper just incase you want to trim some of the higher peaks. POP also features two tone controls “Thump” and “Air” which are also dialed in to help make your tracks pop.


  • Input/output gain adjustment.
  • Unique display to visualize dynamics in real-time.
  • Compressor fine-tuned to bring out the “pop” in your tracks.
