Every nuance of real analog compressors has been modeled; including the exact nonlinear characteristics of their transformers, tubes, VCAs, amplifiers, phase distortions, harmonic distortions, and timing.

The Compressors
All of the compressors in the VBC bundle have a variable hi-pass filter and a mix knob that can be used to control the ratio/percentage of the compressed signal to the dry signal. Each compressor can be used in series, and the series rearranged by dragging and dropping. Compressing a mix with each one doing a very little amount can sound amazing! And, using the compressors in series within the 'Rack' also makes it very easy to A/B/C the compressors on source material. Finally, VBC will come with stock presets made by some of the industry's top mixers.

Features of the Compressor:

The FG-GREY starts off with a very precise model of the classic British "4000 series console compressor". It has a way of being able to tighten, glue, and 'gel' the components of the mix in ways that can go from fairly transparent in auto release mode, to very aggressive in manual mode.

This compressor is based on the classic RED-faced compressor that has been a favorite of mix legend Chris Lord Alge. Put it on your mix in the settings that Chris uses: 1.5:1, attack around 10/11 o'clock, auto release, compressing just 2-3 dB tops. Using these settings, you can get one of the clearest, punchiest sounding rock mixes to come out of your speakers.

There is some real magic that happens when your mix goes through a brilliantly designed piece of tube gear. The midrange thickens, the lows get tighter and rounder, and the top end opens up with a beautiful sparkle... and even better, those harsh upper mid overtones seems to get tamed. If you scan through the presets, you can get a great idea of what its capable of: smooth rich compression, fat warm compression, and even slightly aggressive compression. But overall, this is a processor that has tons of analog mojo and vibe for days. A sure hit on your mixes!

While all three compressors are available as separate plug-ins in your DAW, you can also use them in our Virtual Buss Compressors Rack plug-in, in which they can be chained, reordered via drag and drop of the u-rack handles, and soloed independently.
