Are you searching for that long-lost and forgotten level of transparency in sound compression? Well look no further, because from the ancient land of Mu, Pulsar Audio brought it back from its mystical origins and currently offers it for only a third of its normal asking price via VSTbuzz.com exclusively. By many deemed the ‘ultimate glue’ compressor, Mu by Pulsar Audio is available at a healthy 67% off, slicing the normal asking price at only €40! Not many days left to go, so buzz yourself over to the link provided before June 10th!
Mu is a “variable-gain” compressor/limiter plugin emulating a deemed legendary Vari-Mu tube compressor. But in contrast to other such emulations, this one uses something called ‘Topology Preservation Technology‘ which, as the name implies, preserves the full topology of the emulated hardware while improving on things like signal-to-noise ratio. The result is an awesome blend of musical warmth and transparency.
Born to be used on a drum or mix bus but equally at home on a drum, vocal or instrument channel, users can combine industry-standard compression and excellent musical clarity with flexibility and versatility to quickly glue sounds together, bring out life or add character and coherence to the drum or master bus, or just to add some subtle warmth or limiting compression to an instrument. This puppy walks in almost all directions.
The rock-solid UI feels fluid and offers control where you need it, including a mid-side/left-right control section with many merits in mixing and mastering, but also proving handy in tracking applications.
Look Ahead ‘and’ Look Behind ensure capturing all transients in front while gain reduction leaves transients undamaged in the back. A sidechain EQ section with High Pass and High Self filter offers ways to manipulate how and when compression is triggered, and a fancy visualization of the waveform and gain reduction over time aids in fine-tuning any setup.
Mu is available for Mac and PC, and there is a free 14 day trial for those wanting a test-drive through the alleys of their DAW, and beware that this plugin requires a (free) iLok account for it to function. No physical dongle is necessary though.
That means you can click that big bulky button that says ‘Buy Now’ without too many hassles afterwards. Do follow instructions though, so you can lead that puppy home!
Mu by Pulsar Audio is 67% off until June 10th!
