Quad Discrete Compressor

The VSC-2 is Vertigo's first plugin release, made in close cooperation with Brainworx, and based upon Vertigo's "Big Impact Design". The VSC-2 plugin captures all the fine nuances of this 6,000$ flagship VCA compressor.

The VSC-2 Quad Discrete Compressor is so named because it uses 4 VCAs built by hand using only discrete components. Its design is a nod toward the best VCA based compressors of the 70s and 80s.

The Vertigo VCA is in fact named 1979. Some of the best features of the "classic" Compressors have been complimented in the VSC. This classic based sound is combined with a modern mastering grade signal path. Some unique and innovative features lie beneath the bonnet, such as the ratio which increases with level in "Soft" mode. (Info from Vintage King USA)

Its precision makes the VSC-2 a first choice for mastering applications and the stereo mix bus.

Although the VSC-2 was developed as a Stereo Bus Compressor each channel provides a complete set of controls which also makes the VSC-2 a dual mono "Must Have" in recording and mix situations.

The VSC-2 plugin offers the same flexibility and precision in the stereo version, and to emulate the dual mono approach of the hardware we have developed a true mono version of the plugin as well.
