Pulsar Audio has launched a limited time sale on the Mu audio plugin, a faithful emulation of a modern yet legendary tube compressor/limiter.

There are several reasons to use a variable-bias tube compressor. One is the exceptional compression transparency that this kind of compressor can achieve, even when pushed into extreme gain reduction. Another – and perhaps the most common – is their ability to add cohesion or “glue” to buses, whole mixes and masters.

Unfortunately, the original hardware is expensive and difficult to integrate with “in-the-box” workflows. Software emulations exist but most owners of the hardware agree that they cannot be compared to the original unit, as there’s always “something” missing.

With its unique Topology Preservation Technology, Pulsar Mu sounds objectively identical to the hardware in every production context, and even makes improvements such as an increased signal-to-noise ratio.

Available in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats, Mu is on sale for $79 USD / 79 EUR at Pulsar Audio and Plugin Boutique until July 27th, 2020 (regular 149 USD/EUR).
