Class A Dual Transformer Mono Compressor
 
AMS Neve  2264ALB
App 514-721-1518   
Originally designed in 1974, the Neve 2264A mono Limiter/Compressor unit quickly became a legend. Delivering similar facilities and performance as the earlier 2254 Limiter/Compressor type, it did so despite being packaged in a more compact form-factor. Discrete, Class A/B design and transformer-coupled circuits used in the input, innovative bridge-driver design, side-chain and output stages ensured a totally unique sound. The original 2264A units are still sought after, decades after production stopped, and they remain one of the milestone pieces of studio equipment.

And now the 2264A unit is available for your 500-series rack.
Crafted in England by Neve engineers, the 2264ALB retains the original 2264A's unique sonic characteristics by using the same architecture, matching c...
 
Anamod  AM660
App 514-721-1518   
The AM660 is a faithful recreation of the classic sound and compression profile of the 660, using the AnaModT process to model the complex tube circuitry of the 660 and implement it entirely in the analog domain. Unlike a digital plug-in or processor based outboard gear, there is no latency, and no A/D or D/A conversions to compromise the sound.
 
Aphex  COMP-500
App 514-721-1518   
An optical compressor that features an electronically balanced input
and a Jensen JT-11DL nickel output-balancing transformer. Extremely
fast optocoupler produced excl usively for Aphex includes Release

Api  525
App 514-721-1518   
Originally released in the 70's, the API 525 is a "feedback" type compressor, such as the 1176 and 660, etc. An input (threshold) control and output (make-up gain) control are provided. An additional "Ceiling" fine tune function modifies threshold and make-up gain for precise changes in compression without changes in output. A compression/limit switch sets ratio at either 2:1 or 20:1. Attack time is as fast as 15u/s. Four auto release modes are offered via two switches, 0.1s, 0.5s, 1.5s, & 2.0s. A De-Ess function inserts an inverse vocal energy curve filter in the detector for effective sibilance/p-pop reduction. The 525 is an identical re-issue of one of the most popular API products ever.
 
Api  527
App 514-721-1518   
The API 527 takes it's place alongside the family of API VCA based compressors, the 225L and the 2500 Stereo Bus Compressor. Anyone familiar with those units will immediately be at home with the 527. Features common to the line like "feed forward" (NEW) and "feed back" (OLD) gain reduction methods selectable on the front panel, provide a choice of "that old way", or "the new way" of compression, for the highest level of flexibility in signal gain control. The "old way" or Feed-Back method is what most of the classic compressors used for the gain control circuit. The "new way" gain reduction is more typical of the newer VCA type compressors that rely on RMS detectors for the gain control voltage.

There is a "SOFT"/"HARD" switch for an "over-easy" type compression resulting in a ver...

Chandler  RS124 Compressor
3669.13$ CAD   
The Chandler Limited RS124 Compressor is a recreation of one of the most coveted audio valve compressors of all time, the legendary EMI/Abbey Road RS124, reimagined for use in the modern studio environment.

First designed in 1960 by Abbey Road Head of Techncial Bill Livey, Deputy Head Len Page and seasoned EMI Audio Designer Mike Batchelor, the Abbey Road RS124 compressor is one of the most coveted pieces of recording gear ever developed.

Born out of the inadequate Altec 436Bs acquired by EMI in the late 1950s for Abbey Road Studios, the RS124 compressor is most closely associated with recordings made by The Beatles at Abbey Road Studios. Present on virtually every Beatles session, the RS124 left its remarkable signature across most of the catalog.

Empirical Labs  EL8 Distressor
1721.62$ CAD Quantité Limitée  
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.
 
Empirical Labs  EL8X Distressor
1913.05$ CAD   
The original concept of the "British Mode" came from an unusual setting on the classic UREI LN1176 limiter. The unit was designed to have only four ratios, each ratio being engaged by selecting one of four buttons. However, as early as 1980 (or before), renegade recording engineers, always on the lookout for something a little more "over the top", found that you could make all four buttons stay "in" if you pressed them just right. What resulted was a very, very aggressive sound that had some elements of the units 20:1 ratio, but with an unusual knee and new envelope shape. Somewhere along the line, someone called it a "British Mode" and the name has stuck. It is also called "all buttons in" and some other intuitive names.
 
Empirical Labs  ELDS-V DerrEsser ELDS-H DerrE...
Spécial 541.12$ CAD   
The DerrEsser is a multi function dynamic filtering device, in an API 500 series module format. In its basic ?DS? mode, the DerrEsser is an effective, level insensitive de-esser, which is a device that will adjust the high frequency gain on overly trebly or spiky vocal, or other source. By using a crossover technique, and dividing the audio up into a high frequency range and a low frequency range, the DerrEsser can use its Voltage Controlled Amp to turn down comparatively high or harsh high frequencies in an extremely musical manner. However, unlike other de-essers, the device is not limited to just de-essing, and allows for multi use of its circuitry.
 
Empirical Labs  Mike-E
2040.67$ CAD

Millennia  STT-1
3914.16$ CAD   
The STT-1 Origin is a fantastic recording channel that can be amazingly versatile. This level of gear requires a substantial investment, but in this case the price is appropriate and it's an investment in something that won't become obsolete and lose half its value before you get it home.

The KomitT Compressor has grown up and is ready for launch! After purchasing the design in 2009, Radial
Engineering has taken this limited release boutique unit to the next level and is confident that it will impress and
become a 'must have' component for the more avant-garde recording engineer.
Radial president Peter Janis: "Following consultation with original KomitT users and naysayers alike, we came
to the conclusion that the KomitT was a 'love it or hate it' type of device. Many love the bold character that the
KomitT brings to dynamic control, while others felt it was simply in another galaxy and too weird. After much
deliberation we have opted to make some improvements for greater functionality while retaining the original
spirit of the design. First, the...
