Audified has released version 2.0 of U73b Compressor, a faithful and unique emulation of the U73b, an old German broadcast compressor/limiter unit.

The device was often used for mastering between 1960 and 1980. It is an all tube vary-mu compressor/limiter with adjustable release time option. We kept the circuit exactly as it was originally designed and only added input and output gain (before and right after compressor circuit) to help with proper adjustment of the compression. The plugin effect has been also supplemented with a VU meter and selectable side-chaining.

Changes in U73b v2.0

  • External side chain added.
  • Auto Output parameter added.
  • Plugins built in newer IDEs with more effective code.
  • Color settings dialog added.
  • Default calibration parameter value mechanism added, calibration parameter range changed.
  • English language added.
  • Oversampling added.
  • GUI improved, retina support.
  • Software can be used on 2 computers per ID simultaneously. (User gets 2 licenses).

Audified U73b Compressor for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available from Plugin Boutique for $149 USD.
