Quantum-Music's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" It's dated, but it's cool"

Altec 436C
This is a compressor / preamp, very vintage with a little oxidized connections. It connects XLR.

UTILIZATION

Very simple, basically two buttons to do most. The release and the threshold is adjusted via a screw, but once set up, I use the imput gain to be more precise adjustment.

SOUND QUALITY

In fact, the equipment has a little something special, it's true. But this is not really desirable for you. Let me explain: it has an interesting grain but also lots of distortion and background noise. If we want to own a production well, it is avoided. If you want to do something dirty, that's fine. And then, the attack time is intensely long for what I do, not adapted.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for ten years, this is the only device of its kind vintage that I've experienced. Now I work rather digital, so no, I do not racheterais something like that. I'd rather go with something more transparent and robust as an avalon, for example.

Altec 436C
Compressor Amplifier has altec 436c Lamps
3 Lamps
XLR plugs

UTILIZATION

One of the most amazing machines and simpler than I used the compressor only has three knobs, a big volume knob, and a threshold and release, which are more difficult to access but the problem is solved with an old trombone.

SOUND QUALITY

Now to talk about the sound quality The camera, Attention: It's Hot. We managed to achieve excellent results on vocals, the song is a marvel. Paired with a Rode NT1 on Strings, the Altec 436C Do not hesitate to serve you a DLIC ear. Control dynamics trs natural t I surprised at the Manir he lets the good''punches''without gcher, as one can get different sounds in drive the tube different ways in short, it's worth its weight in gold .. Relement!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year, I learned the proper use depending upon the source.
versatile compressor I've tried compressor Urei, dbx, Behringer, nothing compared to 436 C
reasonable price, I would do this choice every time
