Fuse Audio Labs has announced the release of VCL-25A, a vintage Vari-Mu leveler plugin for Windows and Mac.

Fuse Audio Labs VCL 25A

The VCL-25A is an authentic emulation of a 50s vari-mu audio leveler originally used in radio broadcasting. All aspects of the circuit including the transformers, phase inverter stage, the 6386 vari-mu circuitry as well as the output driver and the time-constant network have been accurately modeled. Plenty of useful features, namely comprehensive metering, input gain compensation, switchable release times, a linear output attenuator, adjustable noise floor level and a mix control have been added in the digital domain for more versatility.

The release time constants have been carefully selected in order to give you a wide range of compression flavors ranging from transparent to aggressive.

VCL-25A is available in AAX, AU, VST and VST3 plugin formats in 32 and 64 bits.

It is on sale for only $29 USD until September 27th, 2018 (regular $69 USD). A fully function 14-day trial version is available for download.
