Join Brian Lee White for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with "modeled" vintage compressor/limiter plug-ins, part of Audio Foundations: Compression and Dynamic Processing.
The old is new again, at least as far as compressors go.…In the last decade, it seems a year hasn't passed that some company hasn't…introduced a new and improved plug-in model of a vintage compressor.…Aside from the company simply needing new products to sell, computers have also…gotten much faster over the years, so the models could be more CPU-intensive and…thus recreate every detail of the original with more precision.…The good news is that new vintage model dynamics processors have never sounded…more like their analog counterparts.…
I'm going to show you how to use two the most common vintage-modeled compression…plug-ins: the Universal Audio 1176 and the Teletronix LA-2A.…There are at least five companies that I can think of at the top of my head…that have modeled these classics into plug-ins.…And some will not feature the exact same name, due to licensing reasons, but as…soon as you see the interface, you will definitely recognize the similarities.…Here, I am using the Waves CLA compressors as an example of the UA 1176 and LA-2A.…
