So, where does our design differ from the original Neve 33609? For one, the signal path is a fully balanced, op-amp based circuit that allows for lower noise compression. We’re also using rotary potentiometers instead of stepped potentiometers, which gives you more control over things like input level and attack time. Like the original, the AGB uses input, interstage, and output transformers, and even when in bypass, these transformers can still be used to add coloration to your tracks. The key input is another great feature that allows you to trigger compression from a track other than the one being compressed, and the limiter section can be used on anything from hard-hitting kick drums to smashing a 2 mix. But don’t just take it from us. Check out the Raves tab above for some great customer feedback!
