Pentode Audio tells us that their VTC-1 is a special analog modeled virtual VST compressor with warm analog, fat pumping and transparent sound.
A spokesperson told us, "Compared to modern compressors VTC-1 has a different inner structure and principle of work: VTC-1 doesn't have a threshold knob, so you set the amount of compression by increasing or decreasing the input level, like with old analog tube compressors. The compression amount knob is similar to a modern compressor's ratio knob. You can select two curves of compression -significant compression or smooth curve. If you prefer fat/massive sound you can boost the input signal to the vacuum tubes by turning the tube drive knob."
