FET COMPRESSOR

A member of the VINTAGE COMPRESSORS Series, the VC 76 recreates a studio legend with a characteristic presence and a punchy, clear high end. This popular compressor/peak limiter, based on FET technology, is renowned for its super-fast attack and unique 'All Button Mode' — a special combination of attack, release, knee and ratio settings that creates a definitive, slightly overdriven sound. Using the 'no-button mode,' you can even apply the VC 76’s signature tone without applying any compression to the signal. All as an intuitive, instantly-useable, stand-alone plug-in.

This effect is also available as part of the specially-pricedVINTAGE COMPRESSORS bundle.

Listen to the VC 76 audio demo.

 

IMPROVING ON THE ORGINAL

Produced in cooperation with Softube, the VC 76 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. A dry control makes parallel compression with the VC 76 a reality.

The VC 76 is great for making drums hit hard in the mix, but it's also great on vocals, bass and for compressing the stereo sum.

FET TECHNOLOGY

FET technology refers to a special kind of transistor: the Field Effect Transistor. These transistors emulate tube behavior, and they’ve been around a while — the first FET patent was filed in 1925.

FET compressors are fast, relatively clean-sounding, and inherently reliable.

"Trying the VC 76 in 'British Mode' I discovered it could have been one of my beloved hardware ones!"
