Tube-Tech CM 1A – No Longer Available
The Tube Tech CM 1A Compressor is an optical, all tube based compressor targeted at single-track recordings: It is equally suited for delicate vocal recordings, as well as critical instrument recordings such as lead guitar, drums, bass etc.
The CM 1A features a gain-reduction element, positioned immediately after the input transformer. It is controlled by the sidechain amplifier, which also contain the two time control circuits – one for fixed and one for variable Attack/Release. The two time-controllers can either be used separately or combined. This circuit contains semiconductor OP-amps for the entire control.
A tube-based push-pull amplifier follows the gain-reduction element with variable gain up to 30 dB. A dedicated Bus selector with three positions (Off, Link 1, Link 2) is used whenever you want to link several compressors together. Input and output transformers have a static-screen between the primary and secondary wirings. Input and Output is transformer balanced as well as fully floating.
