» Check the VLA-2A

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.

» Check the VLA-3A

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.

» Check the VHL-3C

Built around a cascade of two constant-K filters the VHL-3C‘s analog counterpart - a sought-after processor from the early 1950s - comprises an entirely passive design with very musical and interactive pass filters.

» Check the VEQ-5

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 employing our proprietary wrapper technology. Your preferred digital audio workstation recognizes the plugins as usual even if you are running different DAWs at the same time. Our plugin wrapper automatically hooks up with your host to make its services available to our plugins using a generic protocol. We even offer a legacy installation mode to support DAWs 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 both on Mac OS and Windows.
