A faithful reproduction of the beast at a great price! Great for mix buss, groups or individual inserts. Many of the clones and DIY circuit boards for these have a summed mono design instead of true stereo in the side-chain section like the original desks have. This has a noticeable impact on the final sound. With summed mono the low end content can become woofy and uncontrollable which can be hard to tame and lead to a frustrating experience... The custom circuit board i have in this compressor stays with the true stereo design in the side chain section which requires additional components but has a much more pleasant natural sound when pushed like the original desks. No need for additional mod boards etc. It negates the need for a side chain high pass filter in most cases. There is still a 160hz side chain high pass filter if still needed of course. Although gentle compression is usually best with these beasts it allows the compressor to be pushed harder with better results. I hand build these one at a time so get it while you can. If its listed, it's built and ready to ship. I have built many custom preamps, compressors, etc and had nothing but great results from those who have purchased form me. There is a 2 year warranty from the purchase date for this or any other item. Please feel free to ask any questions. You can read my feedback on ebay for reviews on these lovely compressors. Insured free shipping to the lower 48 U.S.A only.
Update: I've received a few questions about whether this unit has the 'turbo mod' as it's known in the diy world. The turbo mod uses an external side chain board to make a gssl build true stereo. This compressor has what would be considered the 'turbo mod' integrated into my custom circuit board design. This is a much more solid solution than fussing with extra mod boards, wires, etc...

Below is the official video demo and a video highlighting the difference between a summed mono and stereo side-chain so one can hear the difference. The compressor in the 2nd video is in a different custom prototype case but it shows the difference between summed mono and true stereo side chain in the compressor
