Black Rooster Audio has introduced a new compressor plugin designed to breathe new life into your productions with its velvety, warm vintage sound.

The OmniTec-436C is inspired by the ’50s-vintage Altec 436 vari-mu tube compressor, which is renowned for its dynamic range and vintage warmth.

This iconic piece of gear has a long list of impressive credits, such as legendary producer Geoff Emerick of Abbey Road Studios. He made use of the Altec 436C to lay the groundwork for many hugely significant recordings, including those of The Beatles, Herb Albert, and Frank Sinatra. The 436C then went on to establish itself in pop music studios across the US and Europe.

The OmniTec-436C plug-in flawlessly emulates the best features of this vintage compressor while modernizing them with our signature Black Rooster Audio twist; offering additional side chain filters, a dual mono/stereo link, limit mode and SC listen mode.

With its tube-based modeling, the OmniTec-436C has a highly musical quality that brings a smooth, mellow tone to your tracks, without ever overpowering a mix. Instead, it provides just the right amount of cohesion, giving your recordings the perfect amount of “glue.”

OmniTec-436C for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available to purchase for a time-limited introductory price only $29 USD (regular $59 USD).
