Based upon the renowned Urei 1176 standard in recording studios, I created
this as a studio-quality Compressor/Limiter that is compact.
As with the 1176, we use FET as the gain reduction element, which produces
an especially quick response. From input to output there is no use
whatsoever of IC, and the discrete circuit gives a clear compression with no
Full use of the 4 controls reproduces the nuances of compressors made for
standard instruments. Furthermore, the trimmer potentiometer on the housing
side allows for a mild tone such as a pedal compressor to come out in
amazing Hi-Fi sound.
