Postby fuseaudiolabs; Sat Jan 13, 2018 1:48 am Fuse Audio Labs releases the VCL-4 Vintage Opto Leveler

Image

Fuse Audio Labs proudly presents the VCL-4 Vintage Opto Leveler plugin.

Available for Mac OS and Windows in AAX, AU, VST2.4 and VST3 in 32 and 64 bits.

ON SALE FOR $39 UNTIL JANUARY 31ST! (REGULAR $59)

About the VCL-4

The VCL-4 is a faithful emulation of the silver face revision of the op amp based successor of THE classic late 60s opto leveler. It provides you with unintrusive to extreme program dependent and musical opto compression. The switchable ratio option makes for a flexible solution over a wide range of source material.

During the modeling process we rebuilt the entire original circuit on strip board, however replacing the original opto-cells that were made up of an LED and an photoresistor with suitable Vactrols. Every part of the circuit including the receiver stage, the side-chain and Vactrol LED driver circuit, the Vactrol itself as well as the push-pull driver stage and the output transformer has been accurately modeled.

Ex Brainworx / Black Rooster

So I wonder how this differs to BRAs VLA-2A ?

Id be interested but I just bought the Acme Opticom from a user last night, how many la2a clones does a person need :hihi:

How does this effect BRA if their head of research and development has left :(

Very strange - so BRA is without its sole coder now, who left to found a company whose first product is an emulation of the same hardware BRA already have an emulation for?

Hey there,

please don't worry, I haven't 'left' Black Rooster Audio and I assure you, the company will keep going strong.
Fuse is meant as a side project for my own stuff and as a means to work with other companies besides BRA.

Regarding your question about the plugin: It's based on the LA-4 which is an Op-Amp / Vactrol (LED+photoresistor to be precise) and it definitely sounds different than its predecessors. Just check it out and see if you have any use for it :wink:

Best,
Ray

See above, this is an LA-4 emulation, it's a different device.

Just check it out and see if you like it :wink:

Ah - my bad - now it starts to make sense - I didn't even know there was another successor... :oops:

I will certainly try it. :D

Hey there,

Sorry I have to be a smart ass on that one:

VAT has to be collected if you're selling from the EU, unless you want to get into serious trouble. So it's not our "fault" it's just the law.

The good news is that our prices are calculated in a way that they already include the respective VAT for your country. So the final price is always 39 USD or 35€ (depending on your preferred currency). So you actually don't pay more then someone else just because you're buying from e.g. Sweden.

No offense and I hope this makes sense.

Best,
Ray

Which is exactly what he was referring to, I think.

Because of your known plugin development and Gearslutz comments I just dropped the cash without demoing :)
