It is not the most powerful compressor in the app Store.
It's not the expensive one either.
As if it is not the most expensive, it is also not the most fashionable.
But nevertheless, it is the one you see the most on my videos....
Am I old and crazy man?
Yes, that's for sure, but still...
Because I have a special relationship with Ngo Minh Ngoc?
Privileged, I don't think so, they kindly offered me this App for me to review it and also offered you 3 copies, but this from Ngo Minh Ngoc is not unusual.
Then why did I do it?
Because it is one of the most transparent compressors in the App Store and when I review another App, I can't afford to change its sound.
Because when I review an App, I often use a lot of other Apps, and therefore I use a lot of CPUs. So I need a compressor that uses as little CPU as possible.
Audio Compressor uses only 4% CPU.
Even if it is not the most powerful (no Sidechain, Pre Amp,...) not the most expensive, so trendy on the App Store it is certainly the one you should use as a section of your channel strip on all your tracks.
A Killer App! A Must Have!

The App Store description
At the heart of this compressor is a unique envelope follower design that makes it possible to compress the signal without creating distortion harmonics.
On the spectrum of compressor tone that ranges from "vintage analog" to "pristine digital", this plugin sits at the extreme end of low-noise digital clarity, but it is different from other low-noise digital designs because it doesn't use digital look-ahead. Therefore its response time is immediate, it adds no extra delay to the signal chain, and it works great for processing real-time performance effects.
It uses no oversampling so there is no phase distortion or loss of high-frequency energy from anti-aliasing filters. It also uses no digital-style filters (FIR filters). Although it is not a model of an existing piece analog hardware, every component of its signal path is realizable in the analog domain. We think of it as a digital model of our ideal analog compressor: it could exist as an analog circuit but would be very expensive to build with physical analog electronic parts.
The user interface is 100% scalable, designed specifically for iOS, so it looks beautiful at any screen size or orientation, from tiny portrait views in AUM on iPhone to the largest full-screen views on iPad Pro. Version 1.0.2 release notes1. Improved readability of gain metres. 2. Supports MIDI controlled automation in AUM. 3. Bug fixes.
