Manufacturer's Description from DW Fearn

The two channels may be used independently or linked together for stereo. A built in side-chain high-pass filter may be selected to reduce the compression on bass-heavy material.

 

Controls (each channel):

Threshold

Gain

Attack

Release

Harder/Softer

Separate/Link/Link HPF

The VU meters may be switched between indicating gain reduction or output level.

 

The VT-7 has a highly transparent sound, although it can be used more aggressively when needed. Artifacts of the compression process are substantially lower than in most other compressors.

 

The two channels may be used independently or linked for stereo. In addition, a third position on the Link switch inserts a high-pass filter (HPF) in the side-chain to reduce the gain-reduction sensitivity of the VT-7 to low frequencies. This is a gentle roll-off, nominally at 100Hz. This allows a bass-heavy mix to have a better frequency balance and prevents heavy low-frequency audio from modulating the audio level. (NOTE: The photo of the VT-7 shows an older unit without the Link HPF position.)

 

The VT-7 is equally adept in tracking as well as a bus compressor. Even jazz and classical tracks can be sent through the VT-7 for some mild gain control without obvious effect other than a significant improvement in the overall sound of the mix.
