Audified has updated its u73b Compressor, an emulation of a vintage German broadcast compressor/limiter unit.

The update offers reporting of latency caused by activated oversampling, improved AudioUnit compatibility with older Carbon hosts, and fixes for a few minor bugs.

The device was often used for mastering between 1960 and 1980. It is an all tube vary-mu compressor/limiter with adjustable release time option.

We kept the circuit exactly as it was originally designed and only added input and output gain (before and right after compressor circuit) to help with proper adjustment of the compression. The plugin effect has been also supplemented with a VU meter and selectable side-chaining.

U73b is great for mastering, mixing drums, bass, guitar, vocals and voice overs.

The u73b Compressor for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available from Plugin Boutique for $138 USD.
