Pentode Audio VTC-1 Vacuum Tube Compressor is a special analog modeled virtual VST compressor with warm analog, fat pumping and transparent sound.
Compared to modern compressors Pentode Audio VTC-1 has a different inner structure and principle of work: VTC-1 doesn't have a threshold knob, so you set the amount of compression by increasing or decreasing input level like with old analog tube compressors. The Compression amount knob is similar to the ratio knob on modern compressors. You can select two curves of compression with a switch: significant compression or smooth curve. If you prefer fat/massive sound you can boost the input signal of the vacuum tubes by turning the tube drive knob.
If you want some real sounding analog color to your digital records and characteristic yet transparent compression feel free to try demo version of VTC-1.
