Wesaudio Mimas 500 Series FET Compressor

500 Series analog FET compressor with digital control and full recallability
MFR# MIMAS

Product Description

It’s all about that significant sound which can’t be beaten by any digital plugin or processor. Most audio engineers mix in the box because of the plugin usability: total recall, automation, settings comparison, etc. They love digital, however, it’s always missing something crucial... the sound. The Wes Audio Mimas is a solution for that: hardware analog gear with digital control, benefits from both worlds: analog and digital. Thanks to the pure analog path, this device acts like proper analog gear but the digital control gives you exactly the same spectrum of compressor control possibilities as you can find in a digital plugin. The proprietary GCon protocol, which allows to communicate hardware with DAW, makes operating fast and easy to use. The Mimas is the world’s first 1176 style compressor with digital control through VST/AAX plugin.

Features:

  • World class compressor sound

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

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.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

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.
Michael D.
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.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
