Lipinski L-629 Compressor – No Longer Available

500 Series module based on the fabled Fairchild Limiter

Product Description

The Lipinski Sound L-629 500 Series compressor’s basic principle of operation and ballistics is based on the famous Fairchild Compressor as its extremely fundamental design is rooted in the patented “Lipinski Square” circuitry. This unique circuitry completely eliminates distortion on low frequencies and on low-release time a covetable quality in a compressor of this kind.


  • Basic principle of operation and ballistics based on the famous Fairchild compressor
  • Patented circuit completely eliminating distortion on low frequencies and on low-release time
  • All other compressors on short release time and on low frequencies changes amplification within single sine wave - commonly a major source of distortion
  • Extremely fundamental design based on patented "Lipinski Square" circuitry
  • No capacitors in the signal path
  • No Integrated Circuits (IC's) in the signal path
  • Only 0.04% maximum distortion with the highest (18dB) compression
  • Extremely fast attack time - 0.01ms (1/5th 20kHz sine wave)
  • Tape Simulation doesn't generate gimmicky even-harmonic distortions - this feature senses and triggers compression on high frequencies (correction within control network)
  • Auto gain: additional 5 sec. attack time, and 5 min. release time
  • Auto control has ballistics similar to VU meter, it is based on photo resistor, completely eliminates distortion with zero adjustment error - quality on output signal totally independent of input level
  • Peak meter: switchable before and post compression
  • Hard wiring option for stereo operation

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.
