Sonimus releases TuCo compressor plugin


Developer: Sonimus

tucoSonimus has announced the release of TuCo, a new compressor effect plugin for Mac OSX and Windows.

TuCo is our new compressor based on vari-mu tube technology with a feedback topology. TuCo can be clean, warm and crisp at same time, exhibiting subtle and natural compression at low amounts and plenty of punch at higher settings. TuCo is an original Sonimus development, designed using analog modeling techniques.

TuCo is ideal for drums, vocals, or any track instrument. TuCo sounds great applied to a whole mix, too. Thanks to its “stereo modes” (Dual Mono, Stereo Vintage, Stereo Modern) TuCo can be used for tracking, as well as for mastering.

Available in Audio Unit, VST 2.4, VST 3 and AAX formats. All platforms support both 32 and 64 bit operation. Supported operating systems are Mac OSX 10.8 or newer and Windows 7 or newer.
