Chandler Limited LTD-2 Mono Compressor
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 classic Neve 2254 style compressor sound – but don’t want to spend an arm & a leg for an un-powered, 30-year-old module?
Chandler’s LTD-2 is modeled after the design, materials and build-techniques of the famous vintage Neve compressors. More importantly, it embodies the spirit and essence of those rare and expensive devices. You can go your whole studio life without ever touching an original 2254/2264 or 33609; that’s how scarce they are. Good thing the folks at Chandler make it easy and affordable to get really close to that authentic sound.
