disPRESSA VST plugin was designed to be an distortion powered compressor. Not a normal math modelled compressor - no threshhold, ratio, or knee controls. Instead disPRESSA uses overdrive as its method of compression.

The input channel is overdriven and then measured. Its level is then used to set the level of the clean output channel. The more distortion is piled on, and the higher the contour control, the more the signal is compressed.

From slight compression upwards, disPRESSA offers a range of possibilities even getting gnarly when pushed really hard.
