Vertigo Sound VSC-2

The first product from Vertigo Sound is the VSC-2, a.k.a. Quad Discrete Compressor. It is so named because it uses 4 VCA's built by hand using only discrete components. It's design is a nod toward the best VCA based compressors of the 70s and 80s.

The Vertigo VCA is in fact named 1979. Some of the best features of these classic Compressors have been complimented in the VSC. This classic based sound is combined with a modern mastering grade signal path. Some unique and innovative features lie beneath the bonnet, such as the ratio which increases with level in Soft mode.
