Ever heard of the Orange Squeezer guitar compressor? We (also) haven’t. Distorque Audio has released the Vitamin C for Windows, an emulation of this compressor. The screenshot looks beautiful in any case, and the comments of users on the KVR Audio forum are certainly enthusiastic. This VST plug-in is available for free.
The Orange Squeezer guitar compressor was released in the seventies and had a unique character, reports Distorque Audio. Among others, it was used by Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits.
