de la Mancha GTO & GTX

de la Mancha has released GTO & GTX, a pair of vintage style ‘character’ compressors, designed like their muscle car name-sakes for brute power, pure speed and to make a loud noise.

They have everything you’d expect in a thorough-bred compressor, but are tuned for maximum control and ease of use, each with their own unique vintage colouring on top.

GTO is a peak compressor, designed for raw power and lightning response. GTX has a smoother RMS delivery with further refinement in the shape of a knee control. They both feature super-fast attack and release times and have a wide range of threshold, ratio and output boost, so they can cover everything from subtle correction to death-by-compression, with everything in between. With an external sidechain, wet/dry mix for NY compression and a hard limiter too, you can really push these babies to get pumping bass and block-rockin’ beats. The metering covers input, output and gain reduction, showing real-time and peak levels.

GTO & GTX features

  • Vintage style Peak and RMS compressors with external sidechain, parallel compression and comprehensive metering.
  • Subtle colouring from a home-made blend of harmonics, saturation and noise.
  • Internal or external sidechain routing.
  • Wet/Dry mix control allows phase-free blending of dry uncompressed signal for NY style parallel compression.
  • RMS window can be set for smooth cruising or sharp response [GTX only].
  • Knee amount can be changed from gentle curve to sharp edge [GTX only].
  • Stereo input detection can be linked or unlinked.
  • Distortion reduction for very short release times.
  • Optional hard limiting on final output.
  • Metering covers stereo input, output and gain reduction. All meters show actual and peak levels.
  • Non-linear knobs for precise control at small values.
  • Presets covering all functions and different configurations.

GTO & GTX are available as VST effect plug-ins for Windows PC, priced at $29 USD.

Until the 1st November 2009, the bundle will include a free copy of GTA, a stripped-down, hot-rodded, limited edition version of GTO, with less features but more flavour.
