Fuse Audio Labs VCL-4
Analog-modeled Opto Compressor Plugin
The VCL-4 is a faithful emulation of the silver face revision of the op-amp based successor of THE classic late 60s opto leveller. It provides you with unintrusive to extreme program dependent and musical opto compression. The switchable ratio option makes for a flexible solution for a wide range of source material.
During the modelling process, we rebuilt the entire original circuit on strip board, however replacing the original opto-cells that were made up of an LED and an LDR 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 modelled.
Available in VST, VST3, AAX Native, Audio Units for Mac OS and Windows in 32 and 64 bits.
