A member of the VINTAGE COMPRESSORS Series, the VC 2A is an instantly useable software emulation of a legendary precision studio tool — an electro-optical tube compressor/limiter with a smooth, silky sound. Attack and release are determined automatically in response to the input signal. It’s also easy to dial in the sweet spot, because the VC 2A has only two main controls – Gain and Peak Reduction – which control threshold and the amount of compression.
IMPROVING ON THE ORGINAL
Produced in cooperation with Softube, the VC 2A also offers a host of additional features not available on the original. An added sidechain input not only allows for characteristic ducking and pumping effects, but also provides possibilities for a wide range of creative compression techniques.
Use the VC 2A for leveling vocals — it leaves the peaks more or less intact but pushes the quieter parts in a natural, musical way. Turn up the gain to get the smooth, subtle coloration and drive this classic compressor is famous for.
