Viridian2 is a AU/VST/AAX plugin suite based on several iconic units. It embodies the essence of the 60s and 70s, bringing you the legendary British tone of some of the world's most exclusive solid-state vintage studio gear, used on countless groundbreaking records that helped write the history of music. In order to give you an even more comprehensive set of tools, we even included a powerful modern reissue of a coveted FET studio compressor, revered by studio engineers all over the world. Plus, for some authentic tube fairy dust, we included a hyper-rare German console from the early 60s.
Viridian2 includes 6 preamps, 3 magnificent compressor models with preamps and 3 equalisers with full band interaction. The third volume of our Divine Comedy inspired trilogy, Viridian lets you explore the vastness of sonic paradise, taking you on a journey into analog sound, and elevating your productions.
A MATTER OF INTERACTION
We know EQs well. Very well we should say. After analysing and recreating dozens of legendary designs, we immediately noticed something particular about this unit and in the way its different bands interact with each other. This behaviour is an integral part of the DNA of this EQ and it is what makes it sound so special. We have worked hard to faithfully recreate this complex interaction between - and across - bands, so you can exploit all the subtleties the hardware is capable of.
BIG KNOBS. BIG SMILES
If you are looking for a beast compressor that is able to mangle, crush, squash and model your sound like clay, look no further. Viridian2 includes what we think is one of the most powerful analog compressors we have ever recreated in the digital domain. Simple in operation, but extremely versatile, and it includes its own preamp, giving you the exact same sound of the original hardware units.
For each plugin included inside Viridian there is a “Standard” version or an alternative “ZL*” version which operates at *zero latency at the cost of extra processing resources and is thus suitable for use when tracking.
Viridian2 is based on our Core 13 engine:
