Distorque Vitamin C VST v1.0.1
Distorque Vitamin C VST v1.0.1

This is an emulation of an Orange Squeezer guitar compressor, with added controls for tweaking. It runs in mono or stereo, and has selectable 2x oversampling. Note that this is not a studio compressor, the Vitamin C has the quirks and imperfections of the original Orange Squeezer that gave it its unique character.

The Orange Squeezer is a guitar compressor that was released in the 1970s as part of the Dan Armstrong effect line. It has been used prominently by artists like Mark Knopfler and Jeff Baxter for its smooth squish and sustain.

Coded in C++, using VST SDK 2.4 and VSTGUI 4.0.


The first preset (OS) is an accurate emulation of the Orange Squeezer. The other presets show a range of different sounds that take advantage of the Tweak controls.



Effect On/Bypassed - This switches the effect on or off.

Tweak - This switches from the normal effect menu to the tweak menu.

Mono/Stereo - This switches between mono and stereo operation.

LQ/HQ - This switches between low quality and high quality modes. The high quality mode has 2x oversampling, but uses more CPU power than the low quality mode.

Gain Reduction - This is a meter that shows how many decibels the compressor is reducing the signal by.


On/Off - This switches the effect on or off.

Out - This controls the output volume.

Comp - This controls the amount of compression applied..

Tweak Menu

Attack - This controls how quickly the compressor starts to reduce gain after the signal has passed the threshold.

Release - This controls how quickly the compressor stops reducing gain after the signal has gone below the threshold. Turning this left of 12:00 or so will add distortion.

Out - This controls the output volume. This control is linked to the Out control on the Main menu.

Thresh - This controls the the threshold of compression. Once the signal has passed the threshold, the compressor will start to reduce its gain. Turning this control to the right increases the threshold, which decreases the amount of compression.

Ratio - This controls how much the signal is reduced after passing the threshold. Unlike many studio compressors, the Vitamin C does not have a constant ratio like 2:1 or 8:1. The ratio changes quite a bit at different gains, so the ratio control affects both the compressor's knee and the overall amount of compression. Some crackling is normal when changing this control, as it changes some of the simulated DC voltages in the compressor.

Blend - This controls the amount of dry signal mixed in with the compressed signal. Try using this control to add a more natural attack, while still getting the sustain from the compressor.

Bass - This control cuts or boosts bass by up to 6dB.

Treble - This control cuts or boosts treble by up to 6dB.
