Spectra 1964 Model C610 Complimiter

A modern spin on the classic Model 610 Complimiter with higher bandwidth Cinemag transformers, external power supply, selectable input padding, multi-stage overload indicator, and true VU metering
MFR# C610

Product Description

The Spectra 1964 Model C610 Complimiter is a modern spin on the V610 Complimiter. While the V610 is a near-identical recreation of the classic Model 610 Complimenter by Spectra Sonics, the C610 offers updated features like higher bandwidth Cinemag transformers, external power supply, selectable input padding and more.


As its name implies, the C610 Complimiter can be used as a compressor or a peak limiter—either separately or simultaneously. Peak limiting mode lets you stealthily remove transient peaks. Mode 2 offers peak limiting with limited compression, which applies mild compression in addition to removing peaks. In compression-only mode, gain reduction is constantly applied for smooth, subtle gain reduction.

After it was originally released in 1969, the Model 610 Complimiter quickly earned a reputation as the fastest, quietest, and most versatile analog dynamics processor on the market. Now, over 50 years later, the Spectra 1964 Model C610 Complimiter delivers the same iconic tone and versatility with a number of major improvements.


The C610 utilizes the 601 compressor/limiter module, with a 101 Preamplifier for make-up gain. Ideal for tracking, bus processing, and mastering, the Spectra 1964 C610 Complimiter puts the limitless tone-shaping capabilities of the Model 610 Complimiter at your fingertips.

Featuring an updated design, the C610 offers lower distortion, less noise, and improved output levels. High resolution detented controls make dialing in the perfect tone quick and easy. The slope control can be used to dial in the compression ratio, while the release time allows you to dial in lighting-fast peak-limiting, soft and slow compression, or anything in between. The new C610 Complimiter also features a dedicated input pad for proper gain staging.

This CompLimiter is really great. Love it for a peak limiter before the mic preamp, it’s great for smashing drums up too. Really awesome at smoothing out slide guitar, smoothing without losing clarity and presence.

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.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
