Alta Moda AM-10 Compressor/Limiter (Demo Deal)

Single channel compressor/limiter designed for use in 500 Series frames

Product Description

The Alta Moda Audio AM-10 is a single channel compressor/limiter designed for use in API™ 500-series compatible rack systems. The AM-10 features a discrete FET gain control element with independent compression and limiter functions.

The compression section of the AM-10 uses a soft-knee feedback-type topology, reminiscent of many classic and much-admired compressors of yesteryear. The compressor’s timing can be controlled automatically (Auto mode) or dramatically altered using the wide-ranging and fully variable attack and release controls. A built-in three-position high pass sidechain filter has also been included for enhanced low-frequency control.

The limiter section is a peak detecting hard-knee style, its control signal being taken from the output of the Effect level pot. Limiting ranges from approximately 25dB down to 4dB. With a little experimentation, many severe and colorful compression effects are possible. This section also includes its own three-position high-pass sidechain filter.

Both sections can be independently linked to other AM-10 units – the compressor uses true power summing when linked, while the limiter section uses greater-of-two peak response when linked.

Separate 7-element LED meters monitor gain reduction and output level simultaneously.

The AM-10’s mix section is comprised of two controls: a level control for the gain cell and a Dry signal level control, giving the ability to blend varying amounts of dry and compressed signals together at the output.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
