Variable Mu is known for it’s smooth polishing “GLUE”. A classic “auto leveling” tool. Retains transient relationships within a mix. Allows control of the overall macro dynamics. Flattering 2-bus frequency curve. Smooth tube sound signature. (Wanting punch? checkout the DME 1968 & 165a) Captured via Lynx conversion @ 24/96. Variable Attack/Release
Use your ears & not your meters. Tube compressors are extremely slow in comparison to VCA/FET designs. VariMu by nature will have slower attack & longer release times. Use the MAKEUP GAIN/OUTPUT to set your final output level. Most importantly experiment.
