I had exactly the same opinion of the VLAII in terms of how the compression sounds. I had Revive modify it. It still isn’t quite my favorite compressor, but it is very useable and has a unique signature.
But it does have balanced ins and outs, which would make it resistant to the kinds of noise I referred to in my previous post.
So, even if the VLA spec’d noisier than the RNC, it would actually be much quieter in a high interference environment than the unbalanced RNC.
