Variety Of Sound has announced the release of ThrillseekerLA, a freeware compressor in VST plugin format for Windows using their newly developed stateful saturation concept.

ThrillseekerLA – digital stereo leveling amplifier with truly analog qualities. ThrillseekerLA not only introduces way smooth gain riding capabilities but first and foremost features a non-linear amplifier stage which is based on a non-linearity with memory yielding creamy signal coloration duties.

ThrillseekerLA is available for free download via Variety Of Sound.


Main features of ThrillseekerLA:

  • Sophisticated and deep gain riding full of musical character and attitude but with virtually nointer-modulation (IM) distortion artifacts
  • Feedback compression design w/o any samplerate based delay in the loop
  • Classic input level driven two knob design with additional manual attack and release time interventions
  • Highly program dependent envelope timing adoption offering attack times ranging from “instantaneously” up to around 100ms and release times from 30ms up to several seconds
  • Mix level switch to adopt the plug-ins internal gain staging to mixing levels at around -18dBFS
  • Custom SC filter option to attenuate the SC bass response while slightly boosting the HF spectrum
  • Additional one pole (6dB per octave) SC low-cut filter adjustable from 20 to 500Hz
  • External sidechain support
  • Switchable Input/GR/Output metering display
  • Variable compression range control from 0 to 100%

      btw Tricky, i’ve decided to include Terry West’s Easy-NY on the list for now – seemed to me like his best and most unique one!

      • Thanks. I can’t say if the Easy-NY is the best, but it may be unique. On the other side, the CompEQ Pro has more modulation possibilities. As far as I’ve tested them, they are all pretty good, but my real love for crystal clear compression (without saturation) goes to ReaComp (it sounds better than it looks) :-)

  1. I already found FerricTDS impressive : tape spirit without drawbacks

    And now this compressor…another big step in audio treatment.

    Those plugins don’t just lower pirated softwares envy, but they kick well established asses, like Waves and such.

    My new freeware favorite setup : FerricTDS, Nebula Free with all additional third party free extensions (you can find a page on Nebula forum) and now ThrillseekerLA :D

    • Agreed! Bootsy must be a serious mathematician and audio dsp guru, and of course a very curious person, his plugins sound amazing.

  2. VOS plugins are so tight, mostly due to their ultra-realistic gui’s.

    Just check out the RACK EARS and extra screws on those panels (not just this beautiful plugin, check out the others…) I imagine these front panels must be made of carefully machined virtual aluminum, and expertly anodized and painted with iridescent paint.

    Best rack ears in the virtual rack ear business. Super secure, those babies will cling to a mix and are practically thief proof once they secure themselves snug right into an awesome sounding effects chain.

    ThrillseekerVBL By VOS actually has unsecured rack ears, but there are however, screws on the corners of the front panel that fastens it most likely to a virtual heavy steel chassis that holds the virtual class A power supply.
