Softube is shipping the FET Compressor plug-in for both native VST, AU, RTAS as well as the DSP-based TDM and VENUE formats. FET Compressor is available today at the Softube web shop ($279 for the native version and $449 for the TDM/VENUE version, excl. VAT).
When creating FET Compressor, Softube set out to make the most accurate emulation of the most famous solid state compressor, and very much effort has been spent modeling the real hardware to make sure that the emulation sounds exactly the same.
Nothing must stand in the way of the sound. Every single part of the simulation contributes to making this piece unique. The extremely fast attack, all the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) distortion that comes from the different parts of the compressor and the extremely careful way the signal is handled and conditioned throughout the signal chain.
On top of that we have added some useful features that still have that analog sound but features that would've been hard or even impossible to implement with analog electronics, such as the continuous ratio, parallel compression, detector filtering and lookahead. That way you will be able to get the best of two worlds.
