Fuse Audio Labs launches emulation of vintage Germanium preamp as VPRE-31A plugin.
Audio Labs announces the availability of its VPRE-31A plugin — an exacting emulation of a Sixties-vintage straightforward Germanium preamp, based on the rare 4-transistor original, fueled by a specialist characteristic curve and even harmonic structure found only in Germanium-based designs, completed by a custom UTC (United Transformer Corporation) input transformer.
VPRE-31Ais a real tone monster with a nice grind when being pushed, providing a vigorous motor for anything rock and electro. Indeed, its significant low end is perfect for guitars and bass, but it is killer on kicks and snares as well. Wherever vocals could well have benefitted from a strongerproximity effect during recording that is simply not there thenVPRE-31Acan prove handy when it comes to quickly getting the balance right again.
As such,VPRE-31A’s virtual cockpit is laid out for instant driving. Get going by engaging the fully-compensated drive (GAIN), then choose a preferredIMPEDANCEsetting for fine-tuning the frequency response, andTRIMthe output level if appropriate, while also adding the desired dose of dustyold school vibes with the onboardNOISEcontrol.
Characterful strength sees to it thatVPRE-31Ais hardly a well-behaved Sunday drive… touch the proverbial pedal to journey along a musical road leading to a massive, true Germanium tone with a remarkably powerful low-end projection.
Note that 14-day trial versions of all Fuse Audio Labs plugins without any restrictions are also available to download for free from HERE.
