WARM AUDIO WARM AUDIO Buss-Comp VCA 2 ... $899.99
WARM AUDIO Buss-Comp VCA 2 Channel Like new in box. SSL style buss compressor. Description The Warm Audio BUS-COMP is an all-analog, 2 channel, stereo VCA bus compressor based on classic circuitry that has provided silky smooth tone for decades. Stereo VCA bus compressors are masterful at controlling dynamics on many sources, but they have become widely known for their magic touch on stereo mixes. The BUS-COMP will perform well on stereo mixes, drum mixes, drum overheads, acoustic guitars, keyboards, piano, orchestral instruments, voice-overs and an array of other sources. The BUS-COMP is primarily designed for stereo use, but it can be used just as successfully on individual mono sources. VCA bus compressors of this type have become widely loved for their ability to control dynamics effortlessly but also for the added tone and depth they provide to the audio signal that passes through them, even when no compression is applied. A Look Inside Re-creating legendary VCA bus compressor technology was the focus of the BUS-COMP’s design, however, adding options and improvements was just as important to us during its development. One feature we are proud to boast is the BUS-COMP’s ability to have USA made CineMag transformers inserted into the signal path driven by fully discrete operational amplifiers. With a single push of a front panel switch, these custom USA made transformers are inserted into the audio’s path providing increased depth, tone and vibe! Premium Components As with all of the products we develop here at Warm Audio, the BUS-COMP was designed with a price point in mind. With efficient, modern manufacturing techniques we are proud to bring this boutique quality, classic VCA bus compressor to the market at a quality-to-price ratio previously unseen. More studios than ever before will now have access to analog quality VCA bus compression. Our desire is for all musicians to be heard the way they want to be heard and we feel the BUS-COMP is the perfect tool to perfect any mix!
WARM AUDIO WARM AUDIO WA76 COMPRESSOR $749.99
WARM AUDIO WA76 COMPRESSOR Excellent like new condition. Box manual Description The WA76 from Warm Audio is a modern reproduction of the 1176 revision D limiting amplifier. With its completely discrete signal path and use of the original Reichenbach Engineering's (now CineMag) transformer design, the unit remains as faithful as possible to the construction of the original classic. The 1176 was a major breakthrough in limiter technology, being the first true peak limiter with an all transistor circuitry while offering superior performance and a signature sound. The ultra-fast attack time was and still is a sound coveted by many legendary artists and studio engineers. This reproduction includes the famous "all buttons in" setting. True to the classic 1176 compressor in design and performance Completely discrete signal path Modeled after the D revision Utilizes USA made CineMag input and output transformers Supports "all buttons in" ratio setting Ultra-fast attack time Class-A line-level output amplifier

SPL SPL Stereo De-Esser Rack Mount $849.99
SPL Stereo De-Esser Rack Mount Excellent used condition minor rack wear. Description The SPL 9629 De-Esser is a 2-channel sibilance-removal unit, and it is a highly specialized audio tool for removing undesired sibilant frequencies without compromising the timbre and natural character of a voice. To solve this difficult problem, SPL has developed a circuit that is designed to combine a high level of technical performance with ease of use to create natural sound characteristics in recordings and live performances. Traditional de-essers use compression techniques. In addition to the threshold parameter used to set the processing level, there is a frequency controller for setting the center frequency of the process (with bandwidths generally up to 4 kHz). Processing therefore compresses the entire selected range, not just the sibilant or S sounds. This results in the familiar and undesired side-effects such as lisping and a nasal-sounding vocal, which is sort of an audio-type slurring of the original signal. The SPL De-Esser does things differently and in a more discriminating fashion. It monitors the S-frequency spectrum and automatically detects the sibilant frequencies. The de-ess bandwidth is set so narrowly around the range of the sibilance that neighboring frequencies remain unaffected. Input processed via this frequency band is mixed back into the main signal phase-inverted so that only the S-sounds are cancelled where the S-reduction controller determines the amount of de-essing in the phase-cancelled mix. The SPL De-Esser is designed to give a more neutral, unobtrusive de-essing process. Even at high S-reduction values the de-essing has a minimal effect on the character and timbre of the voice or even an instrument. Additionally, the De-Esser system doesn't just look for sibilance in a wide 'general sibilance' region of the spectrum. Instead, the user simply sets a front-panel switch to Male or Female to adjust for the vocal characteristics of male or female voices. The 9629 is a 1 RU rackmountable unit, and it features two channels of de-ess processing. Each channel is outfitted with an S-REDUCTION potentiometer complimented with Auto Threshold, Male/Female and Active (on/bypass) switches, and an on/off power switch. Located on the rear of the 9629 are balanced XLR and jack plugs for the inputs and outputs and a GND lift and voltage-selector switch. 2 Channels of de-essing Dual voltages for US and overseas XLR and 1/4" TRS connectors Standard 1 RU 19" rackmountable
