Retro Instruments Doublewide II 500 Series Tube Compressor
The Retro Instruments Doublewide II is the long-awaited successor to the original 500-Series Doublewide tube compressor from Retro Instruments. Featuring faster attack and release time, advanced stereo linking capabilities, and improved signal to noise ratio—this next-generation 500 series compressor has everything you need to tame even the trickiest of transients.
Based on the best-selling Doublewide 500 series mono tube compressor from Retro Instruments, the Doublewide II retains all of the features that made the original an industry-favorite. This plus-sized single channel compressor fits snugly into two slots of a standard 500 series rack, yet draws only 130-milliamps of current.
The Doublewide II utilizes high-quality US-made PC boards and Simpson gain-reduction meters. Featuring Cinemag’s industry-leading input and output transformers, colorful 12AT7 and 12AU7 tubes, and a fully hand-wired circuit—the Doublewide II provides unparalleled sound quality.
…AND BETTER THAN EVER
The Doublewide II introduces a number of highly requested features to the original design, allowing for increased flexibility and control. Capable of faster attack and release times, the Doublewide II is perfect for aggressive tones, similar to the Retro Instruments 176 Limiting Amplifier.
Featuring improved signal-to-noise ratio, better frequency response, and increased analog character, the Doublewide II takes a modern classic to whole new levels. Ideal for bringing vocals to life, fattening up bass guitars, and crushing drum tracks with extreme parallel compression, the Doublewide II is your new go-to compressor.
Pair two Doublewide II’s together and uses the new stereo linking feature to add classic Retro tone to your drum overheads, pianos, stereo pads, backing vocals and more.
PREFERRED BY THE PROS
The Doublewide II combines the best tube technology from the 50s with modern and convenient features to deliver iconic tone. Many of today’s top artists, producers and engineers rely on the legendary tone of Retro Instruments products in their workflow every day.
