Native Instruments recently announced the re-release of four popular studio effects.
VINTAGE COMPRESSORS and TRANSIENT MASTER feature sleek new user interfaces,
and can now be used as stand-alone plug-ins in any DAW.
VINTAGE COMPRESSORS are painstakingly accurate emulations of three
legendary compressors found in recording studios worldwide. Each has
been created by NI and Softube to deliver the true sound of the original
- with additional sidechain inputs and dry controls for parallel
compression. The VC 160 and VC 2A also feature a Low-Cut dial for
avoiding overly hard compression. Producers can explore a wide range of
modern, creative compression techniques with the beloved sound of
classic studio equipment.
Each compressor can be purchased separately or as part of the VINTAGE
COMPRESSORS bundle. The VC 2A is based on a legendary electro-optical
tube compressor/limiter. Its medium-to-slow auto-release setting makes
it especially suitable for adding smooth presence and punch to drums,
vocals or the stereo bus. The VC 160 is based on a studio staple with a
voltagecontrolled design. This compressor provides extremely-fast signal
detection – perfect for drums and any instrument where adding punch and
edge is essential. The VC 76 recreates a popular FET compressor renowned
for its super-fast attack and unique 'All Button Mode'. Versatile enough
for use on a wide range of sound sources, its streamlined control panel
means this extremely precise, studio tool is also extremely intuitive.
TRANSIENT MASTER is a unique envelope shaper providing users with the
ability to place instruments – especially drums and percussion – in the
mix, independent of compression and EQ settings. This deceptively simple
tool is based on a popular standard used as a secret weapon in many studios.
After the half-price special good to November 26 at the NI online shop ends, prices will be:
The VC 2A, VC 160, and VC 76 are available for $119 / 99 € each.
The VINTAGE COMPRESSORS bundle is available for $ 229 / 199 €.
