The VCL-373 is a recreation of an early 60s broadcasting limiter/compressor that eventually found its way into many mastering studios. 1963 marks a technological shift in that the famous diode-bridge based gain reduction stage was replaced by a transistor-based circuit that allowed for less THD and more reliable control voltage tracking.
The plugin includes a faithful emulation of the audio transformers, the feedback compression circuitry as well as the discrete class A make-up amplifier. Some convenient features including a continuous drive control, GR metering and a dry/wet mix have been added in the digital domain.
Available in VST, VST3, AAX Native, AudioUnits for Mac OS and Windows in 32 and 64-bits.
