AUDIFIED U73B overview

  • 1Description

The 2nd-generation u73b Compressor from AUDIFIED is a dynamics plug-in which faithfully emulates the tone and behavior of the u73b, a German vintage tube compressor/limiter often used for mastering in the broadcasting industry between 1960 and 1980.

The plug-in simulates the circuitry of the original u73b with the addition of input/output gain controls and a VU meter to provide more adjustment options when setting the compression.

This version includes an external side-chain, and is ideal for mixing drums, guitar, vocals, voice-overs, and more.

Note: Software is iLok-protected. Hardware key is not necessary, only License Manager is needed.

u73b Compressor
  • Faithful emulation of the u73b, vintage German broadcast compressor/limiter – second generation plug-in

New in Version 2

  • External side-chain added
  • Auto Output parameter added
  • Built using IDE software, with more effective code
  • Color-settings dialog added
  • Default calibration parameter value mechanism added
  • Calibration parameter range changed
  • English language added
  • Oversampling added
  • GUI improved, retina support
  • Software can be used on 2 computers per ID simultaneously – user gets 2 licenses


Compressor/Limiter Switch
  • Switches between Compressor mode (Kompr), Bypass (Durchschalt), and Limiter mode (Begr)
  • Compressor mode has lower threshold setting and gentle increasing ratio
  • Limiter mode provides higher threshold setting with higher ratio, but with smooth knee
Release Time
  • First three positions offer fixed release time
  • Other three positions (marked red) provide adjustable program-dependent release time options
  • Adjusts input gain before compressor/limiter circuit
  • Adjusts output gain after compressor/limiter circuit
Key Input
  • Selects the signal source used for controlling gain reduction
  • Original U73b is a vintage device and as such it may not meet present mastering demands – bass management button switches between original sound and desired modern sound (without low frequencies bypass)
