For the first time ever, these plugins offer up Decker’s entire dynamic signal chain for any track in your mix – EQ, compression, limiting and all.

With 25 years of industry experience, Billy Decker has worked with some of the biggest names in the Nashville music scene. Country superstars including Sam Hunt, Rodney Atkins & Chris Young trust him to help them achieve radio success and his work speaks for itself. His credits include over a dozen #1 singles and the count keeps growing!
Decker’s signature sound is all over his recent chart successes – big, natural drums, bright, clear acoustics, and round, warm bass. All of these have been refined down to an intuitive plugin layout for each instrument in the series. As Decker says, “these plugins offer decades of experience to mixers of any skill level.”
The Nashville drum sound is unparalleled in the industry when it comes to open and organic audio. Modern country music demands both clarity and punch, which we achieve through a combination of vintage analog channel modeling and modern clip circuitry & compression.
Billy’s bass bus is a perfect hybrid approach incorporating traditional compression and classic equalization with digital harmonic enhancement and smooth peak limiting. The end result is bass that sits just as well between two pop songs as it does in a country playlist.
Taking a page out of the rock n’ roll playbook, Billy’s electric guitars follow a similar recipe to the one many rock and metal mixers use. With a focus on driving the low-mids and pick attack, his guitars sound crisp and aggressive. This one’s got some serious color the harder you drive it that’s sure to please.
Perhaps the most surgical element of Billy’s mix comes in the form of keys. Whether it’s a piano, organ, or synth, this plugin uses world-class signal processing to find all the sweet spots and brings them to the front of the mix. Crank it up and watch your keys come to life!
Vocals tend to have some of the most extensive signal chains and Billy’s vocals are no exception. With his signature Vox plugin, you can switch between your singer’s genre & gender to compare multiple compression options quickly and easily. Get a radio-ready vocal sound without the clutter.
The Acoustic plugin tightens up the low-end of acoustic guitars, removing any boxiness from your recordings. Whether you’re mixing an acoustic song or it’s just one of many elements in your mix, getting a crisp and clear tone is important for acoustic instruments. (It also sounds great on mandolins, banjos & other stringed instruments.)
This plugin offers more tonal capabilities than we’ve ever had in a master bus compressor. Meticulously modeled around a vintage compressor and topped off with some modern multiband peak limiting, you’re sure to find every style you want between Country Pop & Rock within Billy’s Master bus processor.
