Description

MAIN FEATURES

wesaudio mimas carnhill transformer _MIMAS – CARNHILL TRANSFORMERS are foundation of its sound.
First and most important point – _MIMAS is fully balanced (IN/OUT) analog device with +24dBu of headroom.
Regardless its digital control nature, fully analog signal path provides top FET compression sound.
wesauio mimas ratios

FOUR RATIO SETTINGS AND LEGENDARY “ALL BUTTONS IN”.

_MIMAS provides selectable classic ratios of 4:1 and 8:1 for compression, and 12:1 and 20:1 for limiting.

If more aggresive type of compression is needed, “All Buttons In” mode is right there to use it. Once again we would like to state loud and clear – it is analog compressor, so is “All Buttons In” MODE!

wesaudio mimas saturation

SATURATION MODE
ONE KNOB to add color and character to your tracks without using compression

Classic implementations of 1176 provide functionality to disable compression and still add color and character to signals. _MIMAS is no different, however instead of using INPUT and OUTPUT knobs to create desirable effect, You can do it with ONE knob, which configures amount of saturation affecting a signal.

wesaudio mimas ng500 series compatible

500 SERIES and ng500 SERIES COMPATIBLE
Regardless its extensions, _MIMAS is fully compatible unit with 500 series standard (*). Digital features can be enabled through front panel mini USB socket.

The Buzz Audio DBC-20 is a new take on a vintage technique utilizing a gain reduction element of silicon diodes in a balanced bridge arrangement. The diode bridge is coupled via a "radio steel" laminated transformer of our own design. This element produces a desirable compression character that can best be described as tight, colourful and rich with harmonics. In the style of compressors from the 60's, the DBC-20 incorporates a self-adjusting ratio whereby the compression ratio is progressively increased with deepening gain reduction. This feature allows for the control of very dynamic signals (such as vocals) in a seamless fashion. The DBC does sound very vintage but does not carry the vintage price tag!

The DBC-20 is available with a grey (silver) or black face plate.

Smart Research C1t is the modified version of the venerable C1 you can find in most modern UK and West Coast recording studios. The C1t is upgraded with the following new features:

C1 Sidechain Modifications
These mods add a three position sidechain high pass filter switch to each channel, and a stereo, unbalanced external sidechain input connector on the rear panel. Using the switches to roll off low frequency signals feeding the sidechain can reduce compression slightly at low frequencies, but without effecting frequency response of the audio signal path. The external inputs can be used for various effects such as 'ducking' from a vocal or the overlap of 'a bass and a kick ... etc.

High Pass Filter switches
The upper toggle switch is for the left channel, and the lower switch for the right. The center position is off (no filter): up is 75Hz, or down is 150Hz high pass. The filters either work on the normal (internal) sidechain signal, or on an external signal if fed into the external jack input.

External Input
Added to rear panel. The stereo input connector is normalled to break the internal sidechain source when a jack is inserted.

Chandler Limited Germanium Compressor GCOMP - One Channel Germanium Compressor
The GERM Comp uses the same all class A amp found in the GERM Pre and Tone Control and is transformer balanced in and out. The Compression circuit uses a FET gain reduction element but with the tricks and flexibilty of all the GERM units. Some of the most notable additions include a WET/DRY mix (for "submixing" tracks within the comp), COMP CURVE (which selects the knee using various diode combinations), CLEAN/DIRTY COMP, and SIDECHAIN FILTER. Many of the GERM Comp parameters have been purposely set by studio use and listening, not by over analyzing them with test gear. The result is a musical powerhouse for ready for tracking, mixing, and mastering.

TRANSFORMERS: Three all-steel transformers deliver big, thick, colored results
TUBE CIRCUITRY: Audio passes through two vacuum tubes for smooth warmth
CUSTOM METERING: Backlit meter displays gain reduction accurately
ATTACK & RELEASE: Variable attack & release timing allows for great flexibility
ROUND | DRIVE MODES: When run in “Round” mode, a smooth, sweet and pure tone will result. If switched to “Drive” mode,  an enhanced harmonic structure and overall driven tone will result.

Chandler Limited TG1 Limiter - Dual EMI Abbey Road Compressor/Limiter
The Chandler Limited TG1 is a recreation of the classic EMI TG12413 Limiter used in custom EMI and Abbey Road recording and mastering consoles from the late 60's. The TG Limiter was originally designed to be like the Fairchild 660/670 which was loved by many EMI engineers, including Geoff Emerick, but ended up with a very special sound all its own. These rare pieces were never commercially available and only EMI owned studios had access to them. Our version has been remade from the original design information and circuit board drawings as provided by Abbey Road and EMI to ensure extreme authenticity!

TG1 Updates & Modifications: Harmonic Distortion Function
Now standard on all Abbey Road Special Edition TG-1's, this option allows bypassing of the compressor/limiter threshold but leaves all circuits in the signal path, turning the unit into a powerful Harmonic Distortion generator capable of kicking out up to 2% Total Harmonic Distortion. That's more than 2 times the amount of analog tape! And all with 100% discrete transformer balanced circuits. Adjust the input for amount of THD and the output to match level. Try running Distortion on one channel and hard limiting on the other. The ultimate in retro! This option is placed on the front panel of the unit with a toggle switch for each channel.

Smart Research C2B offers an additional parallel compression stage to the standard C2, or a Blend function to the famous C2 VCA compressor by Alan Smart. The pot is located on the left of the front panel. The unit houses two independent mono compressors, in stereo mode, the left channel controls adjust the settings of both channels, so the right channel controls are no longer used, offering a real stereo operation. The C2M version has a set of controls and two audio channels for stereo use, while the C2R is a two-channel extension allows you to build a system with up to 8 channels controlled from a single C2 or C2M.

The Smart Research C2 compressor houses two independant mono compressors, or in STEREO mode, the left-hand controls operate both audio channels, with the right-hand controls not used, giving true Stereo operation. The C2M version has one set of controls and two audio channels for Stereo use, whilst the C2R is a dual channel remote expander for building up to 8 channel systems controlled from one C2M or C2.

The characteristic sound of this unit arises mostly from the fast response at the onset of compression, which when delayed to occur around the mid range attack settings (after 0.3 to 3 milliseconds) results in a window through which transients can still pass. When used accross a mix, or with any dynamic programme, this has the effect of adding 'punch', as the sidechain 'breathes' around these transients, while still controlling overall levels. CRUSH mode has been developed as an extension of this 'musicality', adding to and accentuating the factors involved in producing the character of the unit. CRUSH may sound surprising to those interested in more gentle applications, being capable of exaggerated compression effects, but in conjunction with the fast limit settings also introduced with this unit, it allows the C2 to be used for a much wider range of applications than the C1.

The UNFa-1 Accessory is an add-on to the UnFairchild 670m mkII vari-mu tube compressor/limiter. It adds a whole new world of flexibility and function to the already versatile recreation of the Fairchild circuit. There were certain features that didn’t make sense to have included in the UnFairchild design because it would have strayed too far from the mission of faithfully recreating the original Fairchild circuit. Being outside the boundaries of the original Fairchild circuit doesn’t make these new features any less desirable. An optional add on product was and is the perfect solution. With these added features, UnFairchild users can have an authentic hardware recreation of the legendary vintage musicality of an original Fairchild WITH a level of control and flexibility that many plugins don’t even offer.

Purple Audio ACTION is a FET compressor reminiscent of the MC77, designed to work in standard 500 racks.

The Action by Purple Audio features a constant impedance 600 ohm input attenuator feeding the input transformer, just like the MC77 units. This makes the input more resistant to overload by hot signals. After the input transformer, the signal is attenuated by the same gain reduction FET as in the MC77. The attenuated signal is buffered by a class A KDJ3 Op-Amp, which feeds the output fader. Lastly, the class AB KDJ4 output Op-Amp drives the custom hexafilar nickel and steel output transformer. The total gain (with no attenuation) is 45dB, just like the MC77.
