IGS Audio Tubecore 500
Vari-Mu compressor (Fairchild 660同類） 好warm好厚聲，過人聲同鼓/bass一流 好smooth，就算唔用佢個gain reduction， 就咁過已經肥勁多。 有性格既compressor，clean tone就唔好諗 要mixing sample可以畀 全新，我一手用家！原裝JJ tube， Sowter/Carhill transformer 想唔肥都好難。 High Voltage，我用Brento 10推冇問題 Made in Poland! 唔急放，但想換compressor，要少少現金 粉藍個條，2-slot，香港勁少人用IGS audio 據我所知香港著名監製有部2-ch 19" rackmount 上GS睇review，佢同One LA好多positive comments 出面$1100 + shipping (好貴） 放6800 Tubecore 500 is a 500-series Vari-Mu compressor. Very smooth and silky sound. It brightens up your tracks. The top end is smooth with tight button. I ran through all my bass/kick/snare/Electric Guitar/vocal to this beast. With BAC500 running in series, I got the best from the both. Very thick sounding. Actually it makes your tracks better even you ran into it without GR. A JJ-tube with Sowter/Carhill input and output transformer. Not only a compressor, but also a tone shaper. If you are looking for analogue warmth or character, that should be a bang for the buck compressor you should think of. Handcrafted in Poland. Not common in Poland but its comments are terrific. It's easy to find positive comments on GS. Also you can find its 19" rackmount brother in one of the famous producers in HK. I am the first user of this item. Rare to have second hand even in GS/Reverb. Got it from US directly at US$1100 + shipping cost (extremely expensive!!). Now sold at HKD6800.
