Plugin Boutique has published a Show & Reveal on the U73b compressor plugin by Audified.
In the video, producer Joshua Casper takes a look at U73b’s features and shows some examples of it at work on a track and a vocal.
The U73b is a faithful and unique emulation of an old German broadcast compressor/limiter unit U73b. This is the second generation of the plug-in. The original compressor device was often used for mastering between 1960 and 1980. It had an all tube vary-mu compressor/limiter with adjustable release time option.
In the plugin the circuitry has been adhered to exactly as it was originally designed and only an input and output gain (before and right after compressor circuit – to help with proper adjustment of the compression) has been added. The plugin effect has also been supplemented with a VU meter and selectable side-chaining.
The U73b is great for mastering, mixing drums, bass, guitar, vocals and voice overs.
U73b is available for purchase from Plugin Boutique.
