Following on from their VLA-2A released last year, Black Rooster Audio has released the VLA-3A plug-in, which they describe as one of the most authentic native emulations of its analog brother from the 70s. A spokesperson told us, "This is our goto-compressor for vocals, but it also works incredibly well for bringing out the ambience on percussive material and helping to put some glue into your mixes."
Here's some details direct from Black Rooster Audio...
Authentic circuit emulation
Our realtime component based circuit simulation approach allows for authentically capturing the sound and feel of the analog unit as close as possible. All the crucial parts, including in- and output transformers, discrete sidechain and audio path networks, filters and of course the T4B cell have been faithfully modelled.
SSE2 optimized code
DSP operations are pipelined using the SSE2 instruction set. This ensures high performance operation despite very complex computations.
Auto-adjusted oversampling for maximum audio transparency
Aliasing artifacts are efficiently attenuated using a low latency linear phase Dolph-Chebyshev polyphase design. The oversampling rate is auto adjusted to your session's sample rate to save CPU while offering the most transparent sound possible.
HighDPI / Retina support
Our user interfaces support high pixel density on both Windows and Mac OS systems to present you with the most enjoyable user experience on high DPI displays. Please refer to your manual to learn whether your DAW is HighDPI capable if you're working on Windows.
