URS has announced the release of a public beta of Phat C, a multi purpose analog sounding compressor for individual tracks and buses.

It replicates characteristics of not one but many hardware compressors . It’s Input Stage adds saturation to color and effect the compressor’s response to different program material. The six saturation models recreate vintage harmonics and soft clipping that effect transients before compression. Our combination of saturation and compression produces a fat sound with attitude! Phat C.

We have included a Spank mode for those that need to spank their transients even harder!
