Once each band has been processed, the following signal pathway shows you how the separate bands are then summed to produce the final output.
The great advantage of processing in this way is that you have full control over the extent to which the 2 bands are processed rather than only the summed signal being processed. This means that if, for example, the low end is strong and pushing the compressor to attenuate the signal when it comes into play, in a standard compressor the higher frequencies would also be compressed at these times. With the BB-CMP you can separately control the low end and leave the high end relatively unprocessed, if that is what you need, or conversely deal with the high end and leave the low end with lesser processing.
The Analog | Digital (MODE) options vary the attack and release characteristics of the processor and will vary the ‘colour’ of the output. Switch between them to hear the difference and select what works for you. You will notice that the actual Attack and Release times are fully controllable for each band. This switch has more to do with ‘colour’ or ‘feel’ of the sound.
The BB-CMP does not introduce ‘hiss’ or ‘analog noise’ when in the ‘analog’ mode.

“it seems necessary to right-click the installer and choose “Run as administrator”. If run without admin privileges, the installation showed an error due to not being able to copy into the VST3 folder. As soon as I ran it with admin privileges, it worked flawlessly.”

Yes, You will need to Download and install purchased version. If you purchased an individual product instead of the full bundle after running DEMO Bundle so I suggest an uninstall/reinstall to get all of the other plug-ins off of your system.
