Fuse Audio Labs has announced the release of VCL-373, a recreation of an early 60s broadcasting compressor.
The plugin includes a faithful emulation of the audio circuitry and adds some convenient features in the digital domain.
The VCL-373 is a recreation of an early 60s broadcasting limiter/compressor that eventually found its way into many mastering studios. 1963 marks a technological shift in that the famous diode-bridge based gain reduction stage was replaced by a transistor-based circuit that allowed for less THD and more reliable control voltage tracking.
The plugin includes a faithful emulation of the audio transformers, the crucial feedback compression circuitry as well as the discrete class A make-up amplifier. Some convenient features including a continuous drive control, gain compensation, GR metering and a dry/wet mix have been added in the digital domain.
VCL-373 for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3/AU/AAX) is on sale for the intro price of $29 USD until July 15th, 2018 (regular $59 USD).
A free 14-day trial version is available for download.
