Product Description

Modeled on the rich lush buss sound of the vintage 2254 hardware with its time constants and fixed nominal output gain, V-Comp packs the musical punch heard on countless hit records.

Harness the Textured Tone of Transformers

Give vocals and other tracks the tactile texture they need: This transformer-modeled compressor doesn’t just compress levels—it’s got character. The design of the original gear—winding coils around a heavy metal core—creates extra low-frequency harmonics when saturated, a huge factor contributing to the classic analog sound.

Fat Compression on Individual Tracks or Masters

Slam the input for more compression, rock the ratio control, and choose Auto or fixed release. Whether to fatten up individual tracks or glue mixes together at the master bus, V-Comp delivers the rich analog sound of half a century ago.

Legendary Limiting for Your Master Bus

A complete limiting section, with threshold, attack, and release, offers an alternative for aggressive control of bass, drums, and compete buses.

Extra Analog Mojo

Even with no compression or limiting activated, the V-Comp imparts analog warmth and character to any signal path. The analog switch adds three different flavors of noise, or turn off to keep only the harmonic distortion.
