Chandler Limited LTD-2 Mono Compressor Mastering Pair
The Chandler Limited LTD-2 is a hand wired and handmade 2254 / 2264 / 33609 using parts and build techniques from the original manufacture of the modules. Grounding, wiring techniques, original transformers, transistors, and much more attribute to the special sound of these units and have been painstakingly recreated in each LTD-2.
The LTD-2 uses the control circuit from the 80-series family of compressors, but retains the Class A amps and transformers from the 2254 and 10-series modules. A six-position attack switch was added, which none of the vintage types had. The sped up release times make the units much more versatile. The LTD-2 is warm, creamy, and valuable in many situations!
All LTD units require and function on the PSU-1, Chandler Limited power supply. The PSU-1 has an internal switch for setting voltage to 120V or 220V (115V/230V).
Crave the sound of a pair of classic Neve 2254 compressors – but don’t want to spend an arm & a leg for un-powered, un-matched, 30-year-old modules?
Chandler’s clever mastering mod features 1db stepped gain, faster release times and special stereo matching of the pair. Originally designed for THE Sterling Sound mastering studio, and Sterling Sound is, well, let’s say they know a good compressor when they hear it!
