These units are hand built to order. There are a few options when putting a compressor together so I build them to order to give you the opportunity to pick the perfect combination of op-amps and transformers. Replicate the transformers found in the vintage API consoles from the 70's.
Referred to as the "preferred" sounding transformer. This transformer has a uniform high frequency response and the bottom end is more open. Built by Scott Liebers, these are designed to match the Huntington and Melville NY op amps from the 70's.
Built by me, sound hair splittingly close to the Huntington and Melville NY op amps from the 70's. Built by me, sonically very similar to the 2520 but with a slightly smoother bottom and top.
Has put together one of the best sounding API/1176 style compressors out there. The FC526 XFMR is stuffed with a ton of features including. Selectable ratio (2,4,8,12,20, and ABI - All Buttons In).
One op amp (gar2520, gar1731, and other options). Input and output transformers (Litz or Ed Anderson). All units are 100% VPR Alliance compliant. I also can BTO any kit from CAPI, Hairball Audio and Sound Skulptor. If you have any questions feel free to reach out!
