Native Instruments VC 160 v1.3.0 WiN
The VC 160 is based on a studio staple with a voltage-controlled design. This compressor provides extremely-fast signal detection â€" perfect for drums and any instrument where adding punch and edge is essential.

THE VC 160 – BOLD AND DIRTY
Classic compressor for added attack and subtle drive. Especially good on kickdrum, snare, bass or guitar.

VCA COMPRESSOR
A member of the VINTAGE COMPRESSORS Series, the VC 160 is based on one of the most famous VCA compressors found in studios all over the world. The VC 160 provides a continuously-adjustable threshold range and a compression ratio from 1:1 right up to infinity while still offering intuitive controls for immediate usability.

The VC 160 is mostly used for mixing drums, adding a definitive 'thwack' or 'knock' to even the dullest kick and snare. Also helpful as a mix-fix for troublesome bass, the VC 160 delivers additional attack and a gritty edge - well-suited to hip hop and retro styles, but versatile enough to deliver exciting results on a wide range of productions. 

IMPROVING ON THE ORIGINAL
Produced in cooperation with Softube, the VC 160 also offers a host of additional features not available on the original. An added sidechain input not only allows for characteristic ducking and pumping effects, but also provides possibilities for a wide range of creative compression techniques. 

A dry control makes parallel compression with the VC 160 a reality and a Low-Cut dial effectively tells the compressor to ignore (i.e. not compress) anything below the set frequency. This essential enhancement helps to avoid over-compression caused by unruly bass frequencies.

A member of the VINTAGE COMPRESSORS Series, the VC 76 recreates a studio legend with a characteristic presence and a punchy, clear high end. This popular compressor/peak limiter, based on FET technology, is renowned for its super-fast attack and unique 'All Button Mode' — a special combination of attack, release, knee and ratio settings that creates a definitive, slightly overdriven sound. Using the 'no-button mode,' you can even apply the VC 76’s signature tone without applying any compression to the signal. All as an intuitive, instantly-useable, stand-alone plug-in.
