TuCo is our new compressor based on vari-mu tube technology with a feedback topology. TuCo can be clean, warm and crisp at same time, exhibiting subtle and natural compression at low amounts and plenty of punch at higher settings. TuCo is an original Sonimus development, designed using analog modeling techniques.

TuCo is ideal for drums, vocals, or any track instrument. TuCo sounds great applied to a whole mix, too. Thanks to its "stereo modes" (Dual Mono, Stereo Vintage, Stereo Modern) TuCo can be used for tracking, as well as for mastering.

Tuco Compressor is a powerful tool that delivers a tight, yet creamy sound. I look forward to abusing this fine plugin on many upcoming tracks. I highly recommend Tuco to any eMusician, producer, sound designer, etc., who's looking for an organic, punchy sound. It performs perfectly on individual tracks and globally on the whole she-bang. I just might whip up a user review down the road, time permitting.

Side note: The products and service I received at Sonimus was wonderful. Sales and customer service was responsive, helpful, and friendly. .. makes using the stuff more pleasant.;-).
