Fuse Audio Labs has announced the release of 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, it's on sale for $39 until January 31st ($59 Regularly).
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 Fuse Audio Labs 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.
