Classic VCA tones with modern specs.

Dubbed "The Mercedes of VCA compressors" the Vertigo VSC-2 Quad Discrete Compressor was Vertigo Sound’s very first product, putting the German company on the map with its genius juxtaposition of vintage sonics and high-tech design.

Developed by Brainworx, the Vertigo Sound VSC-2 Compressor plug-in for UAD-2 and Apollo interfaces is an exhaustive emulation of this modern classic — right down to its four hand-built discrete VCAs — delivering legendary compression textures with a modern signal path and controls.

Now You Can:

Track and mix with the classic VCA compression combined with a modern mastering-grade signal path

Add musical-sounding compression character to your tracks

Dial-up precise punch on instrument buses without sounding dull or nasty, even when the unit is pushed hard

Tame dynamics with an inaudible start to compression with Soft mode

Cut off signal peaks using the natural sounding Brick mode

Use the Sidechain filters (60 Hz or 90 Hz) to prevent pumping bass frequencies when using extreme compression

Key Features

Faithful recreation of the Vertigo VSC-2's all-discrete VCA compressor circuitry with the same tonal flexibility as the original, authenticated by Vertigo Sound
Provides the rich tonal characteristics of classic compressors with modern mastering-grade audio specifications
Select the unique Soft mode for a threshold-related ratio that automatically increases with higher input signal
Use Brick mode to operate the VSC-2 as a limiter, effectively cutting off signal peaks
Sidechain high pass filters are provided to reduce the compressor's response to low frequencies
Dual mono as well as linked stereo modes; perfect phase coherence is maintained between channels in stereo
Requires UAD-2 DSP Accelerator Card or Apollo Interface, available from authorized dealers worldwide

Must have plugin

This VSC-2 Compressor Plugin is very impressive on allmost every Solo Channel or Mix Bus. It is also very usefull in the mastering chain. The very clear Sound and the compression can be like a Punch or very subtile. For me, it´s a MUST HAVE.

I am not surprised

Vertigo Sounds makes serious gear.. we are lucky to be in a time where plugins almost sounds identical to the hardware.

Amazing

The VSC-2 has its own noble restrained character. Showing its strengths, both when editing subgroups and single tracks, is also very well suited for mastering. If you are looking for a noble VCA compressor, you should have it, worth every penny

Very Good Overall

Smooth and subtle....really good for a lot of tasks....a solid workhorse....Doesn't have a super special sound or flavor, so hence the 3 stars....but it does a lot of things well.

Best compressor. Hands Down!

I don't usually write reviews if not at all, but this compressor deserves it hands down. This is definitely my new favorite and in my opinion, not many 3rd compressors are close to beating this. Dare you to A/B you'll hear the awesome flavor this compressor adds when glueing your mix.

Your True Blue Compressor

I had Purchased this Before UAD added it on its arsonal Collection, Though no one really wants to invest twice for the same Plugin but in this case it is beneficial because the native version is a CPU hog and UAD was the solution..To bad UAD does not have a transition program in which you can take any legit program they later added and after verifying they either give you a super discount or give a coupon deduction...But about the Compressor,Get it,I love it's specific tone shaping character is kick ass.. put it together with the satellite saturation plug and your mix will be thick and pumping..
