Native Instruments Introduces SUPERCHARGER GT

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.
