Berlin, February 25, 2014 – Native Instruments today released
SUPERCHARGER GT – a compressor inspired by the rich, tube-driven sound
of a boutique hardware unit. A feature-rich follow-up to the
SUPERCHARGER compressor released in December 2013, SUPERCHARGER GT goes
beyond modern tube compression by adding dedicated Saturation and
Character modes and additional controls for complete sonic fine-tuning.
SUPERCHARGER GT is available at the NI Online Shop for $99 / 99 € / £89
/ ¥ 9,800. Owners of the original SUPERCHARGER can upgrade for a special
price of $49 / 49 € / £42 / ¥ 4,800 – a $50 / 50 € / £43 / ¥ 5,000
saving off the regular price.

SUPERCHARGER GT was designed for simple yet comprehensive sound shaping.
Producers can quickly dial in a wide range of compression effects using
a single 'Compress' knob. The effect's automatic make-up gain allows
them to stay focused on the sound of the effect without having to
compensate for the drop in volume compression can sometimes cause.
Pre-set Attack and Release settings provide a starting point for setting
SUPERCHARGER GT's response to incoming signals – producers can start
with Punch, Gentle, and Slam modes. Dedicated Attack and Release
controls allow an additional degree of fine-tuning.

Aside from compression, SUPERCHARGER GT also delivers a set of
tone-shaping controls that make it more than just a compressor effect. A
'Saturation' knob with Mild, Crisp, and Slam saturation types give users
three ways to add harmonic content to their tracks. At lower settings,
SUPERCHARGER GT offers subtle harmonic enhancement. At more extreme
settings it delivers raw, distorted coloration. The 'Character' knob can
fill in missing low end and smooth out unruly high frequencies with Fat,
Warm, and Aggressive character modes adding to its versatility.
Furthermore, a mid/side mode lets producers create space in a mix by
applying the effect only to the left and right sides of a signal –
perfect for adjusting stereo imaging. A detector high pass prevents
unruly low end signals from mis-triggering the compressor. Combined,
these features provide producers dynamic control, warmth, and sonic
shaping in one convenient plug-in.

SUPERCHARGER GT is available as a software download at the NI Online
Shop for $99 / 99 € / £89 / ¥ 9,800.

Owners of SUPERCHARGER can upgrade for a special price of $49 / 49 € /
£42 / ¥ 4,800 – a $50 / 50 € / £43 / ¥ 5,000 saving from the regular price.
