The WesAudio Timbre is an all tube vari-mu compressor based on the 6386 tube, and inspired by the old, famous and much desired Gates STA-Level compressor. The Timbre is easy to use, full of color and sweetness. It is a vintage-style compressor made from the highest quality of components.

Augmenting the design are new features like the third mode of operation with shorter attack time, a high-pass sidechain filter, a link for stereo operation and a bypass function. Timbre utilizes a novel program controlled release circuit which creates density and consistency while minimizing typical compressor side-effects at up to 40 dB of gain reduction!
