Description

Our mastering specialist.

What can the VTC do with your music?

  • It compresses your mix and glues it together.
  • It clears up the bass and low midrange and gives it definition.
  • It adds a golden finish to your sound.

Why it goes so easy

The VTC is very easy to use:

  1. Simply turn up the input so that the music is compressed sufficiently.
  2. Get the right timing with Attack and Release.
  3. Adjust output level.
  4. Finished!

The liveliness and micro dynamic is preserved even at high compressions. The VTC matches your music. With his 'gilded' tube sound and extremely beautiful, soft compression he is marvelous in merging the mixes into a homogenous whole.

The VTC suits either the mix-bus, solo instruments and sub-groups.

For the accurate reproduction of all settings, all the controllers have been equipped with 42 steps.
With the link switch, you can uncouple both channels and use the separately for separate signals.

Try it out for yourself! Register now and we will send you the VTC for 14 days so you can test it without any risks or liabilities.

Why the sounds gell together so well

The tube compressor is built after the Vari-Mu principle, like it was used in the Fairchild 670 compressor, has a particularly distinct sound which sounds very musical and already adds the finishing touch to a lot of mixes.

Many hours of fitting, hearing and testing were spent on the VTC.
The VTC starts the compression very gently and only intervenes more strongly at higher compression. A high-pass filter in the analysis circuit reduces the influence of low frequencies on the compression. Together with the appropriate attack and release settings, these measures ensure that the VTC is able to compress the sum without audible pumping, even with a compression of up to 6 dB.

Why does it sound so golden

The signal passes through a total of 3 transformers and 4 triode tubes per channel in the VTC.

Why is that important? Tubes (especially triodes) add overtones to the signal that the human ear perceives as pleasant and improves the perception of the individual sound sources. The individual instruments receive an additional presence through the tube. Transformers convert the current to a magnetic field and back as current and their non-linearities to provide a pleasant compression of the sound before it is compressed. The bass becomes tidier and more defined. The treble is pleasantly rounded off.

The VTC can make the difference between "mixed quite well" and "sounds perfect".

…After a few listening sessions, the VTC's strength was clearly evident in its voices and bass. The Tegeler Audio Vari Tube was also able to reach top form with drum tracks or percussion…

…Drums appear more powerful and clear, vocals and guitar more full and grippy, reverberation and soft signal parts more finely resolved and more spatial…

…The VTC cuts an equally good figure when refining entire mixes…

…Remarkable was the high degree of naturalness and unobtrusiveness with simultaneous presence, abundance and density…

…Thanks to its fantastic sound character and excellent audio and processing quality, the VTC will certainly be on the shortlist for all those who are planning to purchase a high-end compressor or sound enhancer…
