Kush released the AR-1 – Vintage Mµ Compressor. It is a Variable-Mµ Compressor plugin with roots in Abbey Road and ‘50’s American Rock, made for lovers of Analog the world over.
AR-1 is a shifting-mu tube compressor whose origins are in the harsh sound of the rockin’ American ’50s, yet it possesses a posh, tea-sipping British image thanks to its use at Abbey Road Studios in the late ’60s. Prominently on the later Beatles and earlier Pink Floyd records. Kush painstakingly captured the sweet breakup of AR-1’s beefy tubes being driven into the dirt. Then joined more than a half dozen significant UI and functional enhancements. The resulting emulation is every bit as chunky as the original and 10x more flexible.
