Black Rooster Audio announces VLA-2A - Opto Electronic Compressor Emulation Plug-in

Black Rooster Audio

Black Rooster Audio has announced VLA-2A - an emulation of THE opto electronic compressor of the late 1960s.

Black Rooster Audio say "We have put all our knowledge, engineering skill and heart into designing the most authentic native emulation of this unit to this date. We love to use the VLA-2A on drums, but it also performs well on bass or vocals and carefully adjusting the compression really helps to make your signals shine and sit just in the mix".

Release is planned for the 30th of November, 2016, as a limited time offer of $99 and a regular price of $129.


  • Authentic Circuit Emulation: A real-time component-based circuit simulation approach allows for authentically capturing the sound and feel of the analog unit as close as possible. All the crucial parts, including in- and output transformers, sidechain and audio path tube stages, filters and of course the T4A cell have been faithfully modelled and matched with an original '68 reference unit.
  • SSE2 Optimized Code: DSP operations are pipelined using the SSE2 instruction set. This ensures high performance operation despite very complex computations.
  • Auto-adjusted Oversampling For Maximum Audio Transparency: Aliasing artifacts are efficiently attenuated using a low latency linear phase Dolph-Chebyshev polyphase design. The oversampling rate is auto adjusted to your session's sample rate to save CPU while offering the most transparent sound possible.
  • HighDPI / Retina Support: The user interfaces support high pixel density on both Windows and Mac OS systems to present you with the most enjoyable user experience on high DPI displays. Please refer to your manual to learn whether your DAW is HighDPI capable if you're working on Windows.
