The Neve 33609 N is a two-channel compressor, with the same hand wired transformers, and feedback circuit as the classic Neve 2254. The 33609 N is the ideal compressor for the stereo bus on audio mixing and mastering, as well as broadcasting applications. It offers a very transparent compression with its 1.5:1 ratio setting, or can be slammed up to 6:1 to get as much attitude as you desire, commonly used on drums, vocals, pianos, and other acoustic instruments. Overall compression is displayed by the front panel, moving coil meters.

Each compression channel has threshold, release, makeup-gain, and ratio controls. The makeup-gain circuit is great for adding a little more grit and warmth to any source, and can be used even if no compression is needed. Each channel is also equipped with a brick wall limiter that has threshold, and recovery controls, which is placed after the compression circuit. You can choose to bypass the limiter completely if you wish.

33609 N can be run in a linked stereo mode, or as a dual mono compressor. Dual mono is ideal for a mix that has a lot of dynamics between the right and left channels.
