PRESS RELEASE – Duesseldorf, Germany – DAW plugin and audio DSP developer Fuse Audio Labs is proud to announce availability of VCS-1, a zero-latency channel strip combining all the tools needed for instant signal enhancement and dynamics control with some powerful special features.
Fuse Audio Labs CEO Reimund Dratwa:
If ever there was a single ‘desert island’ plugin, VCS-1 is it. Anyone seeking a single plugin to shape and process all their signals, groups, and busses in the most convenient way possible need not look any further than this powerful plugin!
By boasting under-the-hood complexity creatively accessed via a nimble workflow-supporting UI based on a comprehensive, practical layout that is as easy on the eye as it is easy to use, VCS-1 virtually shapes all kinds of tones. Indeed, its triple-topology PREAMP offers different styles of coloration, while wide-ranging HP (high pass)/LP (low pass) FILTERS and a 5-band, fully-fledged parametric EQUALIZER are also available alongside dynamics controlled by a luxurious COMPRESSOR/limiter section and a highly-practical GATE/EXP (expander) stage, clearly visualized by a comprehensive gain reduction and level METERING panel.
Processing sections are individually enhanced by highly-flexible routing options with the FILTERS and EQUALIZER each being operable in STEREO or MID/SIDE MODE. Moreover, the COMPRESSOR’s side-chain can make use of the FILTERS, the EQUALIZER, and external control signals. An additional mix stage allows onboard PARALLEL compression, and every single section of VCS-1 can be bypassed individually.
Its immense processing power is rounded off by an ability to assign individual plugin instances to virtual groups that share the same parameters all across the DAW host, helpfully saving time and effort in the process.
VCS-1 is available now at an attractive introductory price of $29 until December 12, rising thereafter to its regular price of $79. It requires macOS 10.12 or later and an AU, VST, or AAX plugin host. VCS-1 is a Universal 2 binary plugin for both Intel and Apple Silicon processors.
