Two high end compressor models for the Universal Audio UAD2 DSP platform come under scrutiny from our resident expert Tosh. The Manley Variable Mu Limiter Compressor - Manley Labs' flagship compressor since 1994 - with tube and transformer driven technology, lovingly modelled by the UAD boffins.
And the Brainworx Vertigo Sound VSC-2 Compressor - a model of the German quad discrete hardware, dubbed the "Mercedes of VCA compressors". This one is also available from Brainworx as a non UAD2 plug-in.
Both offer subtle and transparent compression, each with its own character. Tosh guides us through what both can do to a variety of program materials.
