Black Rooster Audio Release 80's VCA Compressor
The Blueface SC-5 (read our review here) has finally been joined by it’s politically incorrect brother, the Blackface. Both pieces are what German craftsmen, Black Rooster Audio term ‘faithful’ emulations of two vintage and very underrated VCA compressors from the late 70s and the mid-80s. With their dual-release behavior and subtle saturation, both compressors are very well suited to extremely dynamic material with the company hinting that the Blackface is perhaps better suited to vocal work. With the
Blackface comes the addition of an external sidechain input and the same, right click powered Auto Gain Compensation as the Blueface. The Blackface SC-5 is a feedback compressor design that prevents a change in behaviour when utilizing its sidechain by treating that input as a normal audio signal, whilst the resulting control voltage is fed into a mirror VCA that modulates the audio signal, allowing feed-back operation to be retained in both normal and ext sidechain modes.
