Delamar (Delamar)Music Radar Rating (Computer Music)Apfelwahn Redaktionstipp (Apfelwahn)

A secret weapon to some - a hidden treasure to the rest. Squash drums, get a snappy bassline, enhance track dynamics, duck, gate, key or de-ess - the Valley People Dyna-mite is a swiss army knife limiter/expander design with unique character that inspires to new sounds.

The Dyna-mites usefulness goes way beyond the snappy and aggressive compression it is mostly known and loved for. True enough - used as a compressor it can make you blink involuntarily at every drum hit you send through it. But it can also be used as a highly versatile expander or a full on gate. Even in this day and age of digital recording with all its editing possibilites, a nice expander is still a very useful tool, for example to control microphone bleed in a natural manner. And a good gate still saves tons of time from editing. The gate can of course also be keyed from an external sidechain, which gives a lot of interesting possibilies.

 

"There is always the debate if plug-ins sound close to the original. With the Softube Dyna-mite I hear absolutely no difference, those guys nailed it."

Michael Wagener - Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Dokken, Alice Cooper, etc.

 

The Valley People Dyna-mite features a limit mode, an expander mode, a gate mode, a de-esser mode and on top of that, two sidechain modes that let you duck or follow a track. Any way you use it, the Dyna-mite has a very special vibe and flavor.

Nowadays, the Dyna-mite has a reputation not only as a problem solver but also as a creative tool that can really influence your sound in a unique way.
