1- Vendredi fou  EL7 Fatso
Spécial Vendredi fou 2499.00$ CAD Quantité Limitée  
The Empirical Labs EL-7 FATSO is a modern digitally controlled analog device that offers many of the "musical non-linearity's" exhibited by the older tube, class A discrete, and magnetic tape mediums. This two channel audio processor will musically integrate frequencies and transients and increase the apparent volume without actual increase in peak levels. In addition, two channels of famous Empirical Labs compression are provided. There are several compressor "types" with fixed attacks and releases (if you want a fully controllable compressor, you will need the Empirical Labs EL-8 Distressor!). Users can enhance & soften the sound of mediums such as modular digital multitracks (MDM's), HD recorders, DAT recorders, RAM Recorders etc. Mixdown engineers will have an option not to use bulky, ...

Class A Dual Transformer Stereo Compressor
 
AMS Neve  33609
App 514-721-1518   
The 33609 is divided into two sections, with all stepped controls for instant recall. From left to right the user is presented with first limiter controls, and then compression controls. In the circuit, the compressor section comes first and the limiter second, as would be expected-the physical layout is an inherent idiosyncrasy with all Neve compressors, and part of the charm, if you will. Threshold and recovery controls are present with six release times available, two of which achieve program dependent release, much like the Fairchild. The limiter also features a slow and fast attack switch that I found somewhat subtle.

The compressor has similar threshold and recovery controls as the limiter, plus ratio selection and makeup gain. The unit also has global gain reduction bypa...
 
Anamod  AM670
App 514-721-1518   
The AM670 is a faithful recreation of the classic sound and compression profile of the 670, using the AnaModT process to model the complex tube circuitry of the 670 and implement it entirely in the analog domain. Unlike a digital plug-in or processorbased outboard gear, there is no latency, and no A/D or D/A conversions to compromise the sound. All the functions of the original 670 have been condensed into three rack spaces.
 
Api  2500 Stereo Compressor
App 514-721-1518   
The API 2500 is a versatile stereo bus compressor that allows adjustment of sonic qualities that can alter the punch and tone of the stereo mix. The 19" rack mountable unit features ATI's patented "thrust" circuit for a chest-hitting, punchy bottom end. With its dual channel design, the API 2500 is set up for stereo compression, but can also be used as two separate units via a single compression setting.

Two Channel Vactrol-based Compressor

The ProVLA II is a tube driven Vactrol®-based Compressor / Leveling amplifier designed to excel in any professional audio environment. Superior performance and an incredible tone makes the ProVLA II and indispensable tool for tracking, mixing, mastering, dynamic control of live sound sources or for use in broadcast audio.

Capable of delivering a far more musical natural sounding and sonically transparent compression than competitive units in its class, the ProVLA II uses an Opto-electronic circuit rather than the more typical design VCA driven level detection circuit. This VCA-less design coupled with a 12AT7 vacuum tube in the gain stage makes the Pro-VLA II the ideal dynamic control device for critical audio applications.

4890.28$ CAD   
The Chandler Limited TG1 is a recreation of the classic EMI TG12413 Limiter used in custom EMI and Abbey Road recording and mastering consoles from the late 60's. The TG Limiter was originally designed to be like the Fairchild 660/670 which was loved by many EMI engineers, including Geoff Emerick, but ended up with a very special sound all its own.

Empirical Labs  EL8-S Stereo Pair
3423.77$ CAD   
The Distressor is an automatic gain (or volume) control device (AGC in engineering terms) designed for pro audio (music) applications. Basically, it electronically controls the volume of just about any source in a very pleasing, and "musical" manner - adding fullness, intelligibility, and especially in the Distressor's case - excitement. This type of device is often called a "limiter" or "compressor" by audio industry people. Its most probable uses will be in recording studios, live sound situations, movie sound production, and radio broadcast production.
 
Empirical Labs  EL8XS Distressor Stereo Pair
3676.11$ CAD   
Unlike most analog compressor/limiters the Distressor is a digitally controlled audio device and actually incorporates several products into one by utilizing digital controls to switch totally different circuits in and out. Years of beta testing and redesign went into the Distressor as will be the case with all Empirical Labs products.

Manley  SLAM!   (MSLAM)
10080.00$ CAD   
SLAM! stands for "Stereo Limiter And Micpre" and it pretty much describes what it will do to most VU meters. We had to put a switch on this limiter to drop its internal VU meters down 3 & 6dB to keep the poor little needles from bending? it'll get LOUD fast (hence the exclamation mark). And on top of being an amazing pair of (actually four) Limiters, and Class A tube mic preamps, it also has masters degrees in DI, AtoD and DtoA, VU and PPM but that was too much for an acronym.
 
Manley  Variable-Mu   (MSLCHP)
5990.00$ CAD   
It is one of the very few compressors that has become a real standard in Mastering studios and contributed to most hit records over the last decade and probably the next. "Mu" is tube-speak for gain, and Variable Mu? is our registered trademark for this limiter compressor. It works by using the "remote cut-off" or re-biasing of a vacuum tube to achieve compression. The precious vintage Fairchild 670 also uses this technique and is one of few all-tube compressor to do so, that we know of. Even the side-chain has glowing rectifier bottles.

Rupert Neve Designs  Portico 5043
2395.00$ CAD   
The 5043 Compressor/Limiter Duo is a new and powerful approach to dynamic processing! This new addition to the Portico range is designed with both tracking and mixing applications in mind.

The Portico 5043 embodies two independent Compressor-Limiters (Channels A and B) housed within a half rack, 1U module. They can be used independently or connected in sequence to provide two separate control slopes. When used independently, for example, as a stereo pair, linking the D.C. control circuits via a front panel Push-Button, enables the level of each unit, "A" and "B", to be held in a constant relationship. Rear panel TRS connections are provided to link multiple 5043s. This linking may also be extended to the former AMEK CIB and DMCL units.

When used in sequence, the Portico 5...

Based around the high voltage, discrete and class-A signal paths made famous in the 5088 Mixer and the Portico II: Channel, the Portico II Master Buss Processor is creative tool that redefines the boundaries and limitations of traditional 2-channel compression and limiting.
With input and output transformers designed and implemented by Mr. Rupert Neve, the high-voltage 72V topology found in the Master Buss Processor (MBP) will integrate flawlessly with virtually any system. Additionally, the MBP incorporates mastering grade detented pots throughout to fine tune its revolutionary dynamics, tone, and stereo field controls. This new topology is a significant evolution of Mr Rupert Neve's classic designs with appreciable benefits to headroom, dynamic range, distortion, noise, slew rate, b...
 
SPL  IRON Mastering Compressor
7499.00$ CAD   
The IRON mastering compressor is not a copy of a classic unit, but rather an original concept in itself. Our goal was to conceive a compressor that provided a pleasant, melodic-sounding, transparent compression, inspired on the vintage compressors of the radio era. And we wanted it to be versatile enough to adapt perfectly to the needs of modern mastering studios.

Thus, the IRON combines not only the sonic virtues of legendary vintage tube compressors with the advantages of the High Dynamic 120 V operating voltage in a single unit. It also sets a new benchmark in terms of tube compressor technology, with the innovative implementation of a parallel dual-tube circuit.
