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 €.

TRANSIENT MASTER is available for $119 / 99 €.
