X6 features up to 6 bands and 4 different modes (Punch, Smooth, Crunch, and Expand). Whether it’s radio-ready vocals, a pumping drum bus, or punchy mastering, X6 gives you the power to achieve them all.

Intuitive and easy-to-use

Multiband X6 is packed with features that take the guesswork out of multiband compression, like Smart Gain Compensation to keep your level consistent as you dial up the compression, Auto-Threshold setting that analyzes your input to ensure consistent compression across all bands, and Input-Output matching for accurate A/B-ing.

Quality-of-life features

Make multiband your own

Multiband X6 is also highly flexible, allowing you to dial in the exact compression that you need. Customize the crossover filters that separate each band, shape the stereo width of you mix and mono elements with its mid/side capabilities, and reduce transients in advance with a selectable lookahead up of up to 20 ms.

Tools for professional results

Ensure that your mixes and masters meet professional standards with pro metering (peak, true-peak, LUFS, and RMS for both input and output), linear phase filters, up to 4x oversampling, and input/output spectrum monitoring.

Product Information
  • Multiband X6 is a professional-grade multiband compressor designed for use in mixing, mastering, and live engineering. It offers zero-latency performance, allowing for real-time processing with no audible delay.
  • This compressor is highly versatile, capable of aggressive flattening and shaping as well as smooth compression, making it suitable for a wide range of audio processing tasks. The intuitive user interface and workflow make multiband compression accessible to non-experts, while improving productivity for experienced engineers.
  • It makes an excellent multiband or traditional wideband compressor by supporting 1 to 6 bands. Unused bands will automatically disappear from the UI, reducing clutter and streamlining the user experience. This departure from traditional space console format for multiband compressors helps to simplify the workflow and improve productivity. The variety of compression types offered by the Multiband X6 helps to fine-tune the processing for the best possible results. Automatic threshold and gain options are also available, saving time, and effort.
