    Quick Hits: Tegeler Audio Vocal Leveler 500 Series Compressor
    Tegeler Audio's analog outboard gear has certainly become a favorite around these parts. For those that love the brand's opto compressor portion of the VTRC Vari Tube Recording Channel, you'll be excited to know that the circuit is now available in the 500 Series format. That's right, meet the Tegeler Audio Vocal Leveler ($712)! Dialing in compression with the Vocal Leveler is extremely easy as the compressor features a simple two-knob design. We have a Gain Reduction knob (Max Gain Reduction: - 12 dB) and an Output knob (Maximum Output Level: 21 dBu). There are also two three-way flip switches. The left switch is used for engaging the module with an In, Bypass and Link option for stereo use of two Vocal Levelers. The right switch controls the compressor's attack and release time with three options; Fast, Auto and Slow. Continue reading →

  8. Mega Rupert Neve Designs Demo With New 5254 Dual Diode Bridge Compressor And Master Buss Converter

    Mega Rupert Neve Designs Demo With New 5254 Dual Diode Bridge Compressor And Master Buss Converter
    Rupert Neve Designs is celebrating its 15th year in pro audio by dropping a few new releases that will have engineers salivating. Earlier this month, the Texas-based brand announced its Master Buss Converter and we're excited to say that today brings us the launch of the 5254 Dual Diode Bridge Compressor. Before we get into our demo video that includes both pieces of gear, let's talk a little about what's going on with this new equipment. Let's start first with the 5254 Dual Diode Bridge Compressor. Rupert Neve got his start making diode bridge compressors in the early 1970s and these designs have become known for bringing warmth and acting as the glue on mixes. The only issue when using a diode bridge compressor in the modern studio is that the controls can be slightly limiting (pun not intended). Not the case anymore, thanks to Rupert! Continue reading →

    Whether you’re looking to glue your mix together, fine-tune the dynamics of a performance, or just add some color and character to your sound, a quality bus compressor is a must-have for any mix engineer.Since Warm Audio recently released its new BUS-COMP, we decided to take it into the studio and shoot it out with several fan favorites. In this video, we put the Bus-Comp up against the TK Audio BC1-THD, Overstayer Stereo Voltage Control, Dangerous Music COMPRESSOR, and SSL Stereo Bus Compressor, so you can hear how each of them perform in different scenarios. We tested each compressor on the drum bus, both in solo and with the mix, as well as on the mix bus. Although each compressor has its own unique sound and features, we used the same settings on each one to help you hear the differences. Continue reading →
