CHANDLER LIMITED - TG1 - Stereo Compressor/Limiter - Abbey Road Sp.Ed. Compressor
The TG1 is a reproduction of the rare and classic limiter/compressor featured on custom EMI/Abbey Road recording and mastering consoles used on late Beatle recordings and Pink Floyd albums including Abbey Road and Dark Side of the Moon. Our company has seen only about ten of these original units in existence-two of which were used to recreate our version.
This limiter/compressor features an all class a discrete circuit with transformer balanced in and out. The sound, often compared to the fairchild 670 set to destruction, is very audible and "squishy" sounding while maintaining its clarity and high frequency response.
- Controls include
- output/gain makeup
- hold (not actually a threshold but something similar-try one and see)
- recovery-fairchild style where attack and release are both affected.
- compressor/limiter select
Requires optional PSU-1 or PSU-2 external power supply.
