Classic DBX VCA Compressor Emulated

Buying Choices

SKnote tells us that C165a has been developed by measuring and testing a classic VCA compressor. They say that its features have been extended to include sidechain filters, a sample-aligned parallel mixing control and a limiter switch.

Main Features:

  • mono/stereo
  • Auto mode for easy compression, punch and smooth sustain
  • 4x oversampling for nice saturation
  • internal sidechain equalizer (low, mid and high bands)
  • internal limiter with controlled distortion (for more punch, peak control or creative drive - switchable)
  • sample aligned internal parallel compression
  • knee meter (leds) and in/out/compression meter
  • simple 3D interface
  • from transparent compression to extreme punch, sustain and creative distortion

Pricing and Availability:
Available as Win32/64 VST, Mac32/64 VST/AU and soon RTAS
