Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Real VSC-2 Sound in a Plug-in!

The Vertigo Sound VSC-2 compressor plug-in gives us everyday engineers the chance few top-level pros have had, namely to experience the "Big Impact Design" of Vertigo's flagship VCA compressor for ourselves. Based on the top compressors of the '70s and '80s, the VSC-2 uses a series of four VCA circuits to provide smooth compression that's perfect for taming highs, thickening mids, and adding serious punch to lows. The VSC-2 plug-in so closely re-creates this analog sound that even Vertigo Sound CEO Andreas Eschenwecker can't hear the difference. And at this price, the Vertigo Sound VSC-2 plug-in is tempting to pass up.

The Plug-in Alliance

I was looking for another good compressor plugin

I have the Slate compressors which are great but I was looking for something else. This compressor is great on a buss its transparent; but don't be fooled hit bypass and your hear the difference! Sometimes I want the color from a compressor but when I don't I choose the Vertigo. I only have it in AXX and AU.

VSC-2 is Very Nice

Works very well and is very subtle. I use it on drum bus and master bus and anything else where you want to just smooth it out and add a bit of analog color.
Music background: 40 Years guitar player with project studio.
