Accurately modeled after the original 70s/80s units the Blueface and Blackface versions of classic and sought-after VCA compressors open up a whole world of versatility: Super gentle compression to smashed-up live drums.
Black Rooster Audio is proud to present the VLA-2A - the world‘s finest emulation of THE opto-electronic compressor of the late 1960s. Let the VLA-2A plugin feature your signals' dynamic in a lively and very musical way.
The VLA-3A takes aspects from its predecessor and combines it with a discrete solid-state circuitry. It still maintains the classic T4 based opto-compressor sound but features a quicker, brighter and more modern response.
The VEQ-5 plugin is inspired by one of the most famous and renowned equalizers in studio history - focussing on the power range frequencies from 200Hz to 7kHz it is aimed at cleaning up and sweetening vocals. But it also does a great job on guitars and keys.
Supported Plugin Formats
AAX, Audio Units & VST plugins
All our plugins support the AAX native, Audio Units and VST plugin formats using our proprietary wrapper technology. After the installation your preferred digital audio workstation will recognize and integrate the plugins as usual. Our wrappers hook up with your DAW to make its services available to our plugins. We also offer a legacy installation mode to help out in cases where the wrapper technology is not supported, so our products can also be installed as normal VST plugins if desired. This way we can provide pretty much the same functionality on the most common hosts, such as Avid Pro Tools, Steinberg Cubase, Presonus Studio One, Apple Logic and many others on both Mac OS and Windows.
