3 Compressors You'll Actually Use


The sound of big studio hardware reborn as software effects

Let’s face it, there are hundreds of software effects out there. You don’t have the time or the budget to try them all out and find the ones you like.

The team at Arturia felt the same way. We wanted to make things simpler, so we could spend more time making music, and less time auditioning dozens of effects. 3 Compressors You’ll Actually Use features - you’ve guessed it - a trio of legendary compressors recreated as software through physical modelling. In the same way the biggest studios and record artists relied on these compressors to achieve their signature sounds, they will become your go-to choice for shaping the dynamics and adding character to your music.

Iconic tone, unique abilities, and 21st century features you’ll come back to time and time again.



Compressors that stood the test of time


Comp FET-76

UREI®’s fabled 1176 compressor, accurately modelled, and turbo-charged with new features. Famous for its fast attack, huge punch, and versatility.


Comp VCA-65

Our very own rendition of DBX®’s classic 165A®, made famous for its treatment of drums, bass, and percussive sound sources.



A perfectly recreated version of the rare tube-powered Gates® STA-Level broadcast compressor. A dream for warming up bass and vocals.

Brought alive by the same exclusive TAE® found in our flagship V Collection, our engineers and developers have meticulously analyzed the original hardware to create the best-sounding software compressors ever.



"Don’t all compressors do the same thing?"

Yes, but also no. Confused? Don’t be.

Compressors will all tame louder parts of an audio signal, balancing the dynamics. However, the way they do this, the tone they impart on the signal, and the creative ways they can be pushed vary wildly. That’s why these 3 compressors are so unique, and the reason why legendary engineers and producers used the originals on countless hit records.



Recreating magic with science

Vintage gear just has that “certain something” about it that seems to just make anything sound better.

Our team carefully analyzed the originals, seeing how the each compressor treats incoming audio signals at a component level, and recreated that magic through advanced physical modelling.

The result is, simply put, awesome. 3 Compressors You’ll Actually Use puts 3 of the most coveted, time-honored compressors right in your DAW, so you can use them on whatever you want! Warm up vocals, slam drum room mics, gently limit delicate performances to bring out their subtleties, we’ve done the hard work, so you don’t have to.

Tips & Tricks

No matter how powerful an effect is, if you don’t know how to use the settings, you won’t get the best out of it. Arturia to the rescue!

The presets found within each compressor give you on-screen tips. This lets you quickly understand which parameters to change to achieve the effect you want. Not only that, but we’ve also included some of the favorite settings from notable studio engineers that use this gear on a daily basis. With 3 Compressors You’ll Actually Use, you not only get the sound, feel, and controls of the most dependable, iconic compressors ever, you also get a helping hand from experienced engineers.



Modern Tweaks

As incredible as vintage gear often is, it has its limitations. Fortunately, as we are recreating this legendary hardware in the software domain, we can remove these limits, and expand on their potential.

The compressors in this awesome collection feature many contemporary touches that will really excite modern music makers: “look-ahead” processing to maximize snap, side-chaining for the ultimate pump, and mid-side processing for huge creative control.


Arturia Software Center


ASC is the central software that elegantly manages all your Arturia software licenses. It activates your licenses and synchronizes them across multiple devices (you get five instances with each instrument license). ASC also notifies you of updates and downloads them. You can even easily learn about new products, download demos versions and purchase the full products. Simple.

TAE® Powered

TAE® "True Analog Emulation" is Arturia's exclusive technology that accurately reproduces the defining sonic qualities of analog synthesizers. It recreates the characteristics of analog oscillators in amazing detail, transparency and clarity, as well as the exact properties of the analog filters that give each classic instrument its unique sound. Soft clipping adds even more punch and presence. TAE® is primarily what makes our virtual instruments indistinguishable from the originals.
