Vintage Tube Emulation

The VTC-2 was faithfully modeled after well reknown tube leveling amplifiers of the 50s to the 70s, while still remaining a Black Rooster Audio original plug-in at its core. Our signature circuit simulation approach allows for a smooth saturation with an incredibly warm spectrum. It doesn’t get any more vintage than this!
This take on a very classic tube compressor is any dynamic-enthusiasts dream - you can now recreate the sound of a vintage studio, right in your DAW.

Inspired by the classics

This plug-in was inspired by the most iconic tube leveling amplifiers of the 50s to the 70s, giving you a tasteful essence of historical hardware in one small, yet powerful plug-in.

Classic Time Control

Get complete control over the time constants for the envelope with the physically modeled version of a classic attack and release circuit, and choose between a fast and slow behavior.

SSE2 & Apple Silicon optimized code
