Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5043-H

2 Channel Compressor Limiter This baby's a hit, literally! Rupert Neve's Portico 5043 Duo Compressor/Limiter has already found its way on to some very big records, both as a tracking device and on mix-buss. Why? Because it sounds amazing! Use the 5043 in dual independent mono mode or linked stereo. Choose between fast and modern feed-forward operation, or summon the spirit of Neve's famous 33609 by using the feed-back switch.

Daking FET III Stereo Compressor

Dual Channel Class-A FET Compressor / Limiter with Class-A Discrete Circuitry, 3-Function VU Meter, and Variable High Pass Filter Daking's FET III gives your tracks that extra ''oomph'' without over-coloring them. The FET III lets you stay true to the vibe of the original mix, while you get your tracks where they need to be. Think of it as a studio tool, not a paint brush.
Saying that, though, shouldn't take away from the versatility of the fully Class A FET III. It works well on an extraordinary variety of sources. The highpass filters - an upgrade from the FET II - let you improve and customize the limiter behavior of the FET III.

Alan Smart C2

Dual Mono / Stereo Buss Compressor with Crush Mode FET ''overcompression'' & Tailored Frequency Response Pretty much the definitive mix compressor, the Alan Smart C2 is based on the much-missed SSL bus compressor (Mr. Smart used to work for SSL...) Ridiculously wide bandwidth along with ridiculously quick attack times make the C2 the beautiful, singular device that it is. With the flick of a switch you can go from easy-to-use true stereo operation to two independent mono channels.
And hey, these are tough times we're living in... so live a little and use the ''crush'' button.

All this in addition to standard comp/limiter features and the sought-after 'API sound.'

dbx_160slblue_f_t.jpg

DBX 160SL

Classic Dual Channel Compressor / Limiter with V8 VCA Modules and Balanced Inputs & Outputs Since its inception the 160S has become the mark for which other compressors reach. As the leader in VCA and compressor design and engineering, we at dbx are always seeking to improve our products and give you the best possible compression solutions.

With the newly improved 160SL, we introduce the patent-pending AutoVelocity technology. With AutoVelocity it is now easier than ever to dial up the exact attack and release effect you are looking for, via the program-dependent, or non program dependent manual mode. Still on board is the venerable dbx Auto mode.
Now you can set your maximum preferred settings in manual mode, and let the 160SL do the rest for you, depending on your program material.

gyraf_g10_vari_mu_stereo_compressor_f_t.jpg

Gyraf Gyratec X

The Ultimate Vari-mu Compressor The G10 is a true tube stereo compressor based on the classic variable-mu principle. This method - controlling the gain by altering quesient current in differential tube pairs - is much faster than the optical method. The speed is why it was widely used in early limiter devices such as the Fairchild 670 or the Universal Audio 176, but the sonic byproducts of this topology are the main reasons why it is so popular today.

Price: $3,455.00

 

pendulum_es8_tubelimiter_f_t.jpg

Pendulum ES-8 Vari-Mu Tube Limiter

Pendulum's ES-8 stereo vari-mu tube limiter might be the perfect compressor!
Sonically, the ES-8's soft-knee design makes for compression that is silky smooth, and its hybrid tube/solid-state design gives the ES-8 a sound that is subtly warm, and truly hi-fi.

ssl_xlogic_gseries_compressor_f_t.jpg

SSL XLogic G Series Compressor

The G Series Compressor has a great reputation. Many engineers feel that this one piece of equipment makes a mix, “ . . . sound like a record.” SSL has been refining this popular bus compressor since its introduction in the SL 4000 console. This incarnation has improved sonics, but retains the external side-chain, and the smoothest auto-fade known to man.

Price: $3,699.00

 

gyraf_g10_vari_mu_stereo_compressor_f_t.jpg

Gyraf Gyratec X/HPF

The Ultimate Vari-mu Compressor with High Pass Filter The G10/Hpf version of the Gyratec G10, allows high-pass filtering of the controlling sidechain signal - allowing harder compression to bass-heavy material without pumping artefacts. The selection is done as 3 extra steps on the bypass switch, which gives cutoff frequencies of ca 80, 160 and 300Hz at a soft 6dB/oct.

Price: $3,713.99

crane_song_stc8_f_t.jpg

Price: $4,450.00

 

neve_33609_u_f_27349_t.jpg

Neve 33609 J/D Stereo Compressor

Based on the classic 2254 limiter/compressor circuit design. A desert-island-compressor if there ever was one, the 2-channel 33609 excels at any job you give it. Each channel has a separate limiter and compressor (each bypass-able) with extremely short attack times. The usability factor is high by all accounts, but especially nice in this digital age we live in. Hot digital tracking tip: use the limiter section to prevent overs and use the compressor to gently beef things up. As great as the 33609 is for drums, guitars, vocals, strings and horns, we (and many others) feel it's almost unbeatable as a buss compressor.

Price: $4,649.00

 

elysia_mpressor_12772_2.jpg

It's a Class-A stereo/dual-mono unit, each channel offering an Auto-Fast function that allows very fast, yet distortion-free compression without any artifacts. Add to its list of features, the mpressor's solid boutique build-quality and elegant, modern good looks, and it's an instant classic for the pro studio or mastering rack.
