Software →Vertigo VSM-3 v1.4 WiN
Developed by Brainworx, the Vertigo VSM-3 plugin delivers the beloved badass harmonic generators of Vertigo Sound's acclaimed VSM-2 Mix Satellite. The engineers at Brainworx have carefully studied the lusted-after harmonic generation and shrewd settings of the VSM-2 hardware, and obsessively recreated it all in the VSM-3 plugin.
The plugin even adds some features not found on the original hardware like the THD Mixer's dry/wet control, and the ability to run the Crusher and Blender in parallel or serially. The VSM-2 sound is now an A-List option for adding character and emphasis to tracks and busses. Its M/S chops in particular open up exciting possibilities for stereo signals! For the mastering engineer, the VSM-3 provides all the unique saturation power of the VSM-2 in an economical and convenient plugin. While there are plenty of saturation/distortion plugin options available, only the VSM-3 offers the singular sonic personality of the over-built VSM-2.
Two independent virtual circuits for two kinds of analog-sounding coloration, ranging from subtle saturation to hefty distortion
Pure 2nd Harmonic FET Crusher for warm, rich, saturation or distortion
Pure 3rd Harmonic Zener Blender for bright, clear, exciter-like saturation or distortion
Crusher and Blender can operate in parallel or serial configurations
Stereo and M/S Decoding and Encoding for each circuit allows processing of entire stereo signal, or Mid or Side channels only
Saturation and distortion can be applied to specific signal frequency ranges
'Shape' knob allows for gentle filtering of high-order harmonics
