Joemeek VC3 Pro Channel by louparte
I bought the VC3 new many years ago and I have come to rely on it.
If this one dies - I will rush out and buy another one.
It is a pre-amp opto compressor. It has a fast attack button.
It has knobs for compression & release. The compression knob
functions like a threshold control. Clockwise increases the amount
of compression. There is a fast-attack button.
There is an enhancer that is not much use in my opinion.
I never use it.
On the back is a phantom power button, input, mic input,
an insert, mix input and two outputs. But it's mono - not stereo.
The compression on this unit is very warm and smooth. It's velvet.
It works best on vocals and acoustic guitars in my opinion.
If there is a drawback to the unit, it may be underpowered.
I've never been able to get good results with a dynamic mic.
But I've had wonderful results consistently with condensers.
JoeMeek has kept this model in its line-up for many years, with a
few upgrades. It's a winner. It's essential to my music.
