With almost a quarter million downloads, the free Rough Rider compressor from Audio Damage is one of the most popular plugin effects on the planet.

RoughRider3 expands on the original RoughRider and RoughRider2. New features:

• External Sidechain Input in hosts
that support it. (Currently only AUM)

• Sidechain HPF control (works on both normal operation and external sidechain, for removing the low end from the compression algorithm.)

• Input and Output level controls, for easier level tuning.

• FULL BANDWIDTH control removes the warming features and high end attenuation from the original RoughRider, for a cleaner sound.

All this in addition to the original RoughRider compression you know and love. RoughRider3 installs both an AUv3 and a standalone with Inter-App Audio.

What’s New

Version 3.0.1

Aspect ratio fixes for the "long and skinny" plugin view modes in GarageBand and Cubasis 3.

I am jkane ,

Professional studio quality compression for iOS and more!

I have every compressor the App Store provides. This is the best free compressor hands down. It’s also in the top 2 for compressors period on my iPad. My signal chain normally is c800 to Avalon 737 to symphony to PT/logic etc, but sometimes I can’t be in the studio and that’s where this application becomes such an essential part of my toolbox. In fact a few times my folks were talking about how much they love the Avalon on my vocals and it was this compressor they were hearing. To the developer. I’ve used your creations for a min and support you every time I can! I’ve made like 2 reviews ever. So there ya go this is the boss of all bosses kinda like how Bill Gates gave his money away this may be free but don’t let that fool you it’s a $40 compressor (App Store, 4K hardware) if you had to rate it compared to others.

Mr M Bag ,

I was ECSTATIC to see this available for iPhone!!!

I am a musician, audio engineer, and producer for a living. I was actually looking for a great VST compressor, compatible with Reason 11, when I stumbled across the RoughRider2 compressor, which I was crazy about. Shortly thereafter, I discovered RR3, and I sincerely run it on almost 100% of my vocal and bass performances. Honestly, I haven’t messed with this app too much yet, but if it supports Audiobus, and is even 1/16th as amazing as the VST... SIGN. ME. UP!!
It’s also FREE!! Seriously, where’s your donation box?? Take my money.... Take all my money...

I had to big up this app

I’m sitting here going through all the dope presets on this thing and smh because I can’t believe this powerhouse compressor is absolutely free. I haven’t even tried to use the compressor in BM3 yet because this thing is all I need and then some. I’m speaking strictly drumz. Update. Guess what? I started applying this thing to all my instruments,keys, bass etc everything! it adds so much flava and dynamics. just adjust accordingly and use it as an aux send.
