DUESSELDORF, GERMANY: DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) plugin and audio DSP (Digital Signal Processing) developer Fuse Audio Labs is proud to announce availability of VCS-1 — a zero-latency channel strip combining all the tools needed for instant signal enhancement and dynamics control with some powerful special features — as of November 8…

By boasting under-the-hood complexity creatively accessed via a nimble workflow-supporting GUI (Graphical User Interface) based on a comprehensive, practical layout that is as easy on the eye as it is easy to use, VCS-1 virtually shapes all kinds of tones. Indeed, its triple-topology PREAMP offers different styles of coloration, while wide-ranging HP (high pass)/LP (low pass) FILTERS and a 5-band, fully-fledged parametric EQUALIZER are also available alongside dynamics controlled by a luxurious COMPRESSOR/limiter section and a highly-practical GATE/EXP (expander) stage, clearly visualized by a comprehensive gain reduction and level METERING panel.

Processing sections are individually enhanced by highly-flexible routing options with the FILTERS and EQUALIZER each being operable in STEREO or MID/SIDE MODE. Moreover, the COMPRESSOR’s side-chain can make use of the FILTERS, the EQUALIZER, and external control signals. An additional mix stage allows onboard PARALLEL compression, and every single section of VCS-1 can be bypassed individually.

Its immense processing power is rounded off by an ability to assign individual plugin instances to virtual groups that share the same parameters all across the DAW host, helpfully saving time and effort in the process.

“If ever there was a single ‘desert island’ plugin, VCS-1 is it.” So says Fuse Audio Labs CEO Reimund Dratwa, duly drawing an equally exciting-sounding conclusion: “Anyone seeking a single plugin to shape and process all their signals, groups, and busses in the most convenient way possible need not look any further than this powerful plugin!”

VCS-1 is available at an attractive 60%-discounted introductory promo price of $29.00 USD until December 12, 2021 rising thereafter to its regular price of $79.00 USD directly from its dedicated webpage, which includes more in-depth information, here: https://fuseaudiolabs.com/vcs1.html
