Arturia Comp DIODE-609 Software Effect

Re-engineered software emulation of the legendary Neve 33609 Diode Compressor and Limiter - software effect
MFR# 1090-93

Product Description

Simulation of an 80's sampler featuring gritty lo-fi textural sampling, high-fidelity 8-bit playback, and smooth analog filters - software effect

The Arturia Comp DIODE-609 - Software Effect is a re-engineered software emulation of the legendary Neve® 33609 Diode Compressor and Limiter, famed for its warm, smooth, and versatile stereo response. For mixing and mastering alike, reinforce your sound with the spirit of analog dynamics.

THE GOLD STANDARD COMPRESSOR

Listen to any chart-topping hit, award-winning soundtrack, or seminal album from the past 40 years, and it’s likely that you’ll be hearing the signature transient wizardry of the Neve® 33609. From Daft Punk to Coldplay, James Newton Howard to Michael Buble, this dual-channel compressor and limiter has been the dynamic backbone of studio recordings for almost half a century. Its unmistakably creamy response, simple design, and huge sonic flexibility has cemented its reputation as the gold standard - modern music simply wouldn’t be the same without it.

THE DYNAMIC ALL-ROUNDER

Comp DIODE-609 transcends the terms ‘compressor’ and ‘limiter’ to offer go-to dynamic enhancement, whatever the occasion; delicate, smashed, or pumping, it’ll deliver the dynamic goods.

ENGINEERED TO PERFECTION AGAIN

Behind Comp DIODE-609’s authentically simple interface is a wealth of groundbreaking engineering, extensive analysis, and detailed modeling.

The end result is a professional, intuitive effect that efficiently enforces the laws of mix dynamics, working sonic wonders with the smallest of tweaks - retrofitted with razor-sharp contemporary features to suit every modern production need.

From protective mix gluing to maximizing drum bus punchiness, this unique diode-bridge effect stands out from the compressor crowd as a workhorse processor for any audio application - and Comp DIODE-609 brings it into the virtual production realm like never before.

SOME THINGS ARE JUST BUILT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME

The Neve® 33609 was originally designed in the ‘80s. Since then, it’s seen a number of model variations, but the core design - and, crucially, the iconic sound - has remained the same. Truly a studio classic that has stood the test of time, and not just in its industry-wide usage; it remains in production by AMS Neve® to this day.

But the 33609 didn’t just stand the test of time - it set the bar. Michael Brauer, Paul Epworth, Josh Homme, Nile Rodgers - the list of genre-defining veteran producers who swear by its dynamic talents is never-ending.

So what’s the secret? Derived from modules found in the almost-mythical Neve consoles from the ‘70s, the 33609 is a rack unit that offers 2 channels of compression and limiting. It’s renowned for its simultaneous buttery response and transparency of signal, courtesy of its diode-bridge topology - offering a faster response, and more refined distortion.

This unique response was also the result of the use of first-class components. Some of Rupert Neve’s own early consoles featured transformers from Marinair, a UK-based manufacturer of radar equipment. Decades later, these transformers were carried over into the production of the 33609 - ensuring that a part of Neve®’s own sonic legacy lives on in these relatively modern units.

To capture this magic for Comp DIODE-609, we modeled one of the revered 33609 ‘C’ versions, an earlier fully-discrete model. Faithfully emulated down to the behavior of individual components, and boldly expanded to cater to modern production needs, Comp DIODE-609 tells an extraordinarystory of its own.

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.
