Variety Of Sound has announced Thrillseeker VBL, an upcoming “Vintage Broadcast Limiter” effect plug-in.
Bringing mojo back – Thrillseeker VBL is a “Vintage Broadcast Limiter” emulation following the classic Variable-Mu design principles from the early days back in the 1950′s. Their purpose once were to prevent audio overshoots by managing the signals sudden changes w/o tone frequent modulations.
From a today’s perspective and especially compared to brickwall limiters, they are rather slow and more to be seen as a sort of gain structure leveler but still they are shining so much when it comes down to perform gain riding in a very musical fashion: They have warmth and mojo written all over it! Whether given vocals, bass or an entire track – they just deliver.
The release date of Thrillseeker VBL is TBA (expected May, 2013).
