Stereo compressor with incredible color British
all analog tube class A
gain, attack, release, threshold, bypass (on the new version) is smart, ca multiplies by 4 the life of lamps :)
link button that can compress or not the two channels independently.
side chain bass cut very smart this can compress the bass or not :)


is simple, turn the knobs and you take his slap
Manual a bit limited, but true to say ... it is a damn. What is a compressor ...


then my friends .... uuuuuuuhhhhhhhh it sounds, but then, severe!
acoustic guitars, vocals, bass, strings, moog, b3, etc. etc. ...
on a bus battery that sticks everything together and gives a color .... uuummm honey,
we buy this machine for its incredible color, it complements my machine park perfectly.
it is the opposite of a Distressor, which will be radical, excellent for the big comp, dégueulasser a loop, the phoenix is ​​the reverse, it is to magnify the sound, voices rose to Inside révellent, acoustic guitars at once ooze timber, and then on an overall mix ... aie aie aie!
it will make you go reverbs with subtlety, gives depth, gives this side impalpable as the analog compared to digital, one who has this machine and that tells me that there is no difference between a plug this same quality and crazy machine, I think it should change jobs ...
on the other hand I think we have some great convertos to appreciate all its magic, used with my Mytek 8x192 is unique ...


yes I have another comp: Distressor, manley, ivory, and plugs

what I love most: its color, its simplicity, its mouth, and the sound!
what I like least: I wish I had a tool box ... from radical surgery to the opposite, it is rather a lightweight compressor that can not really destroy, compresséer like crazy, it's all in the subtlety and musicality, but good for my Distressor I ca :)

value for money? hmm ... it's really expensive, but good when it was ... we understand why.

I remake that choice without any hesitation
