Fetter Engländer!
Raudio, 05.02.2014
Dieser Kompressor spielt eindeutig in der großen Liga!

Habe ihn hauptsächlich für Stimmen verwendet und kann ihn dafür "wärmstens" empfehlen. Er dickt die Stimmen angenehm an, ohne ihnen die Klarheit zu nehmen.

Es bleibt immer eine gewisse Griffigkeit bestehen, was ich bei Kompressoren der Oberliga so herausragend finde. Auch als Deesser über den Sidechain konnte ich gute Ergebnisse erzielen, wobei hier die Listen-Funktion sehr hilfreich ist.

Mit den einstellbaren Parametern ist man schnell am gewünschten Ziel, wenn ich auch manchmal das Ratio-Poti etwas vermisst habe.

Preis/Leistung lassen mich aber eine klare Kaufempfehlung abgeben.

Drawner 1968 ME
Parabola, 22.05.2011
très Très très bon compresseur, Tester sur un mix complet en sortie de console en live, sur des voix, sur des bass. Rien à dire ça ne mange pas les aigus, ça compresse mais ne casse pas la dynamique grâce à la lampe situé en sortie de compresseur qui ramène du bas médium chaud et rond. Les réglage sont très facile, le vu mètre très cohérent en mode gain réduction. Le bypass est très pratique pour se rendre compte de ce que l'on fait, et voir que y'a pas photo, ça marche. Difficile d' utiliser d'autre compresseur dans la gamme de prix inférieur apres celui la. 10 fois mieux qu'un 160A.

Un gran compresor!!!!
EduardoV, 16.02.2013
Despues de un tiempo utilizando este compresor puedo decir que es de las mejores compras que he realizado. Aun siendo a valvulas, el sonido es tremendamente transparente, al igual que la compresion. Ademas crea una mejora significativa en la imagen estereo, produciendo un sonido con una sensacion de más apertura.

Es tremendamente bueno en la compresion de bus, e incluso en la masterización. El ratio variable facilita el control de la macrodinamica si utilizamos tiempos más largos, con lo que hace muy bien el trabajo de igualar las diferentes partes de una mezcla.

Definitivamente no es una buena opcion si lo que se busca es un compresor con caracter. Como he destacado antes, es un compresor muy transparente pese a ser a valvulas.

Lo ultimo a destacar es el precio, muy ajustado para la calidad y el sonido del compresor.

Definitivamente, yo creo que es un compresor que cumple SOBRADAMENTE con cualquier tipo de situación en que haya que comprimir una mezcla completa.

Ein wirklich guter Comp für vieles
Joshy007, 08.04.2014
Ich benutze den 1968MKII jetzt seit fast einem Jahr. Meistens für den Drum-Bus, da ist er eine Wucht, für Bass auf bestens geeignet (besonders für Synth aus dem Rechner). Aber auch beim Mastern kommt er oft zum Einsatz, gerne auch auf dem M/S-Signal. Die auto-release time ist oft sehr gut, manchmal allerdings nicht schnell genug. Dann Einfach die kürzeste feste Zeit wählen und es knallt ordentlich.
Die Verarbeitung ist 1A. Die Potis rasten satt ein und das Gesamte Gerät fühlt sich sehr wertig an.
Die konzeptbedingte Abwesenheit des Ratio-Parameters vermisse ich nur sehr selten. Aber man kauft dieses Gerät ja weil es ist wie es ist und wirklich sehr Gut klingt und vielseitig einsetzbar ist. Einzig gerasterte Trimm-Potis wären noch wirklich toll.

In Summe mehr als sein Geld wert IMO
