Tegeler Audio announces Schwerkraftmaschine
Tegeler Audio Manufakturer has announced Schwerkraftmaschine, a new analogue (yet flexible as a plugin) Vari-Mu compressor.
“Schwerkraftmaschine” is the name of the new Vari-Mu compressor from Tegeler Audio Manufaktur, who describe this completely analogue signal path as an equivalent to the Vari Tube Compressors with 4 tubes and 6 transformers while combining the flexibility of a plug-in with the sound of real analogue hardware.
According to Tegeler, a DSP generates the control signal for the compressor, making it possible to simulate the behaviours of all existing compressors. Yet, the idea is not to emulate analogue behaviour, but rather to create compression programmes that cannot usually be implemented using analogue equipment, or only with great effort.
There is also a side-chain filter in the lowcut mode which is adjustable from 0 - 300 Hz, and also a tilt EQ to optimally adjust the compression to the specific audio material. A mix knob can be used to mix between compressed and uncompressed signals.
All controllers are fitted with servomotors and can easily be adjusted via the network using a DAW plug-in (VST, AU, AXX) or the built-in web server. This allows the user to store the Schwerkraftmachine’s settings for each song. It is also possible to automate individual parameters in the mix.
However, the Schwerkraftmachine is fully operable through the device itself and there are no functions that can only be accessed via a plug-in.
A high-resolution LCD shows the programme mode and degree of compression.
The Schwerkraftmaschine will be available from January 2016 for €2,940 (excluding taxes). More details shall soon be available at www.tegeler-audio-manufaktur.de.
