Black Rooster Audio has released Blackface SC-5, a compressor effect plugin that is faithfully modeled after the 80’s revision of its blue-faced brother.

It offers a slightly darker tone and adds an external sidechain input, providing transparent vocal treatment to colorful compression.

Black Rooster Audio Blackface SC 5

Accurately modeled after the Blackface version of a classic and sought-after VCA compressor the SC-5 opens up a whole world of versatility: You‘re going for super gentle compression to sweeten up the signal on your masterbuss? You‘re looking for a colorful or smashed sound on your drum buss? You want to tame lively and dynamic material? The Blackface SC-5 handles it all.

Compared to its brother, the Blueface SC-5, the Blackface SC-5 brings you slightly different compression behavior, a different harmonic structure paired with a darker sounding audio path and the option to feed in external sidechain signals.

The Blackface SC-5 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available at a limited time introductory price of $49 USD until May 31st, 2017 (regular $89 USD).
The Blueface SC-5 is also available for $49 USD during the sale.
