VeeCS is a mini-channel  strip.

Noise gate switch that attenuates everything below -60dBFS.

EQ sections consists of 2 shelving filters and 2 bell filters which highly interact with each other. For instance, cranking the 12 k to the max will create a 3 dB worth scoop in the middle and a slight boost to the sub frequencies.

The most interesting and unique features are HPF and LPF filters which in fact are a combination of shelving filters and band pass filters, creating EQ curves which are NON EXISTENT in other analogue and virtual EQs. Their exact action depends on what other controls are set like. For instance, when 12 k is maxed, the HPF control become a movable "analogue tape head bump" (from 50 Hz to 1250 Hz) with a tweakable Q. When EQ are set flat, it is just a -12 dB hi pass filter with an adjustable resonating peak.

LPF can be used to boost hi freqs - just move it slightly counterclockwise and boost Q to create a broad peak. HPF can be used to boost bass in the very same manner. Or you can crank up Q of the LPF and automate the knob to sweep through the spectrum to imitate wah-wah effect. Or you can... possibilities are limited only by your imagination, just turn the other knobs and observe how action of "filters" changes.

Additional modules include a tube saturation model (crank the input to very slightly saturate the signal - however, the module is not designed to create a full-fledged distortion but was designed to deliver as clean tone as possible with just a tiny touch of "analogousness", just for the sake of it) and a brickwall limiter before the output control (yes, the more EQ freqs get boosted, to greater the slam against the limiter, which creates interesting effects on its own).

In short - what differs this CS from so many other plugins?

  • It is "alive". Just like in many expensive boutique EQ units it was inspired by "what you see is not what you get", i.e. the controls highly interact with each other and they do it in a unique manner. You cannot rely on digits but have to use your ears - just like they did it in the prehistoric times :)
  • "HPF" and "LPF" filters are designed in a very unique way, not present in any other vst of the type.
  • It is hard to make the module sound bad, no matter what you do with the knobs. The unit is designed to deliver unique but musical results. It is not suitable for serious audio mangling or damaging the input signal but rather "sweetening" and "focusing" and using EQ curves not present anywhere else. I designed it to solve problems, not create them :)
  • It can be used as a limiting amplifier.

I'm getting a lot of use out of this. idk if it's "lo fi" or if I just don't know what I'm doing, lol. I go after rawer rock sound, like you find in mid-60s garage rock or mid/late 70s 1st-wave punk rock. And this helps me in that. Very great product!

This was done to do exactly that, to color the sound in a way similar to older studio equipment. I am very very happy to know that the plugin found its way to you and it serves you so well. Cheers!

The email address given here isn't active now. I was going to pester you with a song we did involving Vee plugins. I seem to remember your asking us for such examples.

Wow, Congratulations! This plugin sounds unbelievable good (similar to the eg- section of a really good vintage analog- console). Great for mastering or buss- equalization- tasks.
