gbSoundlab has announced the release of an updated version of its vintage compressor effect plugin for Windows and Mac.

TubeMUv2 brings many improvements to the compressor which emulates the sidechain and feedback curve of variable mu models, generating a smooth cohesion to embellish any track or final master.

Several new controls have been incorporated into this second version of TubeMU, achieving greater flexibility in adjusting any sound source. Now we can choose between the response of an older conventional compressor “CLASSIC” or another with greater precision “STABLE”. We can also select the compression upwards “UPWARD” or downwards “DOWNWARD”. The latter is the most similar to the response of variable mu valve compressors.

With TubeMUv2, we will obtain a uniform compression, thanks to the emulation of the sidechain and the feedback curve of the MU-variable models, generating a smooth cohesion, to embellish any track or final master.

TubeMUv2 retains part of the architecture of the first TubeMU, but is now more tamed and cleaner for the demands of today’s production. A second compression section has been implemented to free up the low frequencies, or simply make use of it creatively, depending on how STABILIZER is set. In addition, a quality control based on the number of samples per period has been implemented.

Priced 28.99 EUR, TubeMUv2 is available for Windows and Mac in VST/VST3 and AU plugin formats.
