Fuse Audio Labs rare Fifties-vintage VPRE-2C plugin

DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) plugin and audio DSP (Digital Signal Processing) developer Fuse Audio Labs is proud to announce availability ofVPRE-2C — its latest plugin par excellence, based on a rare all-tube, transformer-based booster amp whose basic circuit design has been used in countless tube consoles for broadcast and recording during the late-Fifties and early-Sixties.

VPRE-2C enriches any recording with an authentic-sounding tube vibe in the most intuitive way. While lower GAIN settings produce a well-defined, balanced sound with an accentuated midrange, turning up this level-compensated control also significantly increases the perception of warmth, weight, and smoothness.

Saying that, the plugin also emulates its inspirational hardware forerunner’s two triode-strapped 6J7 pentodes for a rich THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) spectrum as well as the original transformer configuration to bring back its signature low-end mojo, while also adding a selectable pre-/deemphasis filter and a MIX control for a greater variety of tones. Another exclusive feature is its BOOST mode — for kicking in more solid drive and coloration.

“Creating VPRE-2C was a fun project,” proclaims Fuse Audio Labs CEO Reimund Dratwa“Rebuilding and modeling the original circuit was a rather straightforward affair, but tweaking this classic amplifier into a versatile and easy-to-use tone box in the digital domain required some thought for sure! The result really is a ticket back in time to deliver that wonderful vintage sound whenever anyone hears it calling out to them.” 

VPRE-2C is available at an introductory promo price of €24.50 EUR until March 7, 2020 — rising thereafter to its regular price of €49.00 EUR — directly from Fuse Audio Labs’ website here:https://fuseaudiolabs.com (All prices include VAT, where applicable.)

Note that a 14-day trial version of VPRE-2C without any limitations is also available.
