Description

Arturia VCA-65 Rhythm Compressor Effect Plug-In.

Introducing Comp VCA-65: The Ultimate Rhythm Section Compressor

Comp VCA-65 is a VCA compressor that captures the essence of the original DBX 165A® compressor, while adding a modern touch. With this plugin, you can add that iconic compressor snap to your tracks.

Unlike traditional vacuum tube compressors, the DBX 165A® compressor used a solid-state VCA and cutting-edge RMS dynamics detection to create its compression effect. It was a unique compressor with great sound-shaping power that is still highly sought-after today.

Thanks to Arturia's advanced TAE® modelling, you can now have access to this legendary compressor in your DAW. This software version allows you to use the compressor on as many channels as you want, and with advanced features that are only possible through software.

Comp VCA-65 is the perfect plugin for studios looking for tight, punchy percussive sounds. Its "Over Easy" compressor, auto attack-decay detection, and harsh peakstop limiter make great compression simple. Even extreme settings have a natural feel, thanks to its unique compression sound.

What makes Comp VCA-65 so special is that every nuance and quirk of the original DBX compressor has been carefully recreated in software. From the biting "crunch" of the peakstop to the fluid "over easy" knee, every detail has been captured. It's like having the original compressor in your DAW, but with some powerful new abilities.
