What is a Gyrator?
Originally proposed in 1948, a gyrator is a type of electronic network that can be used at the heart of equaliser designs as an alternative to its even older inductor predecessor. Although inductors are still popular with some designers looking for a vintage sound, they have inherent issues like ringing and odd harmonics. On the other hand, gyrators can work better than the 'real thing' and give the designer more freedom, a factor put to work in the VSE-2 to create, among other things, a tube-like distortion spectrum.
Features found in VSE-2 Plugin Only:
- Frequency bands can be switched independently to "Broad" (Low Q).
- Additional Input and Output Trims to Avoid Internal Clipping Issues in your DAW.
- All levels can be set directly at the VSE-2 EQ stage.
- Harmonic Control with Drive LED.

Fantastic Filter for enhancing both mixes and in mastering. No aliasing that i can detect at all. Smooth curves that seem to accentuate all the frequencies you want to hear and feel in your mix without adding in the stuff you don't want. The frequency selection is plenty good enough for me to create a tasty separation with all the tracks. What i liked the most was i became more creative while using it and less noticing issues or problems i had still to deal with. The more tracks i put it on the better mixes became. The VSE-2 is fast becoming one of my fav's and i am really glad i bought it. It won't be the only EQ i use in mixing. It will be one of the final EQs I use to add shape and flavor in deeply felt textures. Congratulations on a great plugin.Read more
