Vacuum Tube Compressor Emulation

123 Creative and Pentode Audio releases the VTC-1 VST plug-in for Windows      09/01/14

Vacuum Tube Compressor Emulation

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."


  • compression amount knob
  • standard attack and release knobs with analog modeled behavior
  • input knob that control amount of compression / level of compression
  • compression amount knob (similar to ratio selector)
  • switch: significant compression (hard curve) or smooth curve (soft curve)
  • tube drive knob for real sounding analog warmth and saturation
  • post-gain knob
  • bypass knob and gain reduction meter
