Love it!

By Jose V on July 9, 2021

THIS THING IS AMAZING. I worked on an AWS console for 5 years so I am very familiar with the G BUS style of compressor and this in my opinion blows it away. The sidechain / tilt options are so intuitive and musical, the THD breaths life and vibe into any thing you put it on, the mix knob is a godsend and the instant, total recall makes it second to none. As a modern mixer / producer I may have to open 3/4 tracks any given day for tweaks, additions etc. I waste ZERO time recalling. Just open and go! My only complaint is that I did not find out about WesAudio sooner. I will be adding one of their EQs to my mix bus sooner than later and will keep an eye out for any new 500 series offerings to come! I did have a slight issue with my first unit I received BUT it was promptly replaced with great customer care from the people at WesAudio and VK. Highly recommended. Game changer no doubt!!

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.
