Pulsar Audio releases Pulsar Mu, an audio plug-in that reproduces the sound of a legendary variable-bias compressor.

Pulsar Mu, thanks to its Topology Preservation Technology, brings you a perfect emulation of the original device's behavior. From the saturation of the magnetic flux in the transformers, to the precise response of the tubes, to the effects of tiny calibration defects, everything is perfectly reproduced. For more info, take a look at their technical article on the subject.

The sound of Pulsar Mu is rather transparent with a touch of warmth. It manages transients in a soft and musical way, even with extreme settings, unlike a FET or VCA compressor. With Mu, you can add movement while respecting the natural dynamics of a source.

Here are its main features:

  • Mid/Side processing.
  • External Sidechain.
  • Flexible Sidechain EQ.
  • Look ahead, look behind.
  • "Modern" GR visualization.
  • Low CPU consumption.
  • Customizable antialiasing.

The plug-in is compatible with VST, VST3, AU and AAX formats on Mac and Windows.
