Dj 4 years old

Arnaud939, 14.06.2011
Already 4 years that I use it in my studio of mastering on each albums,
It is the softest and most musical compressor I know, it thickens all mixes smoothly, it is capable of coloring transients without ever appearing as a compressor, calming them or on the contrary energizing them, and especially its Strong point and the obvious facilitated with which one can link a mix.
I love this machine, in mastering bienur, but also live in insert on the LR bus of the console, on drums in studio and it is the only one I use in classical music if I need to lower A little dynamics.

Professional Masteringtool

23.01.2017
I use the VariMu mainly as a sumscompressor. About the sound still many words to lose is quite unnecessary- the part is finally for good reason an integral part of many Topstudios. It is pleasant to note that the control ranges have been selected in such a way that the compression / limiting behavior still remains very musical even if the settings are too well defined. The most pleasant effect is in my opinion, if the pointer instruments move only slightly, so the sound tonally almost unchanged, but works? Denser? And? More massive ?. It is also good that the HP Sidechain, which was previously only available as an option, is now standard, with the function activated, the bass range is largely unaffected, which can be very helpful with very bass-heavy tracks. Thanks to the genuine bypass switches, meaningful comparisons are possible. The price of the VariMu is certainly high, but the processing is appropriate, the components used are all extremely high quality. Due to the total of 8 tubes in the unit, the part is really hot, therefore the note, at least 1 HU to leave the device free or to use ventilation screens to take seriously. In summary, a true classic with timeless design, comfortable operation and extremely high-quality workmanship: clear recommendation. As always with my orders with Thomann: Service and handling perfect.

Is mastering a 'black art' best left to the pro­fes­sionals, or with the right technology, is it something that anyone can attempt?
