The TUBE-TECH CL 1B is an all-tube optical mono compressor. It delivers a very musical and smooth compression, preserving the clarity of the source even at extreme settings, and this is where CL 1B really stands out compared to other compressors.
The TUBE-TECH CM 1A Compressor is an optical, all-tube compressor. It features exactly the same tube circuit as our famous CL 1B Opto Compressor, but the action is different due to a different, carefully selected optical element and a fine-tuning of the control circuit.
TUBE-TECH SMC2BM is the mastering version of the famous SMC2B Stereo Multiband Compressor. On SMC2BM all audio controls feature High Quality switches, fitted with precision resistors, to ensure extreme accuracy in settings and recals.
The TUBE-TECH SMC 2B Stereo Multiband Compressor features three independent optical stereo compressors. Combining the effect of wide 3 band level control with individual compression of the three bands creates pure magic, especially on the main mix bus, but also on submixes like drum buss, instrument groups and single tracks.
The LCA 2B is an all-tube VCA compressor/limiter with two independent, linkable channels. It's a true TUBE VCA compressor, using a tube as the VCA (voltage controlled amplifier). This kind of compressor is also known as a Vari Mu compressor.
The TUBE-TECH CL 2A is an all-tube optical compressor with two independent, linkable channels. CL 2A is a great compressor on all sources, and it is widely known as an excellent “problem solver” when delicate gain control is called for.
Inspired by the success shown by our much-acclaimed TUBE-TECH SMC 2B Stereo Multiband Compressor, we have introduced this very special recording channel: A High End microphone preamplifier & multiband compressor with outstanding sonic properties – the MMC1A multiband recording channel.
The MEC1A is an all-tube mono recording channel, combining the classic TUBE-TECH designs: MP1A mic preamp, EQ 1A active EQ and CL2A compressor in one powerful, 2U recording package. The MEC1A delivers true TUBE-TECH sound: Full and warm, yet open and transparent.
