Review: Q2 Audio ADR Compex F760X-RS

Date: 06/17/2015

By Russ Long. The ADR Compex F760X-RS ($2,750) is a classic FET based compressor/limiter/expander/gate and has been a go-to box for many engineers over the past several decades. The vintage units continue to garner top dollar from those in the know. With the cooperation and full support of ADR, Tim Mead’s Q2 Audio has brought the elaborately designed Compex back to life. I should add that while the audio signal path and side-chain processing circuitry is completely faithful to the ADR’s version, some features have been updated to improve long-term reliability and operational flexibility, including the addition of external side-chain access which is configurable in the compressor or gate side-chains or via internal jumpers.  MORE

Review: Acme Audio Opticom XLA-3 MkII Tube Optical Limiter

Date: 06/12/2015

by Russ Long. There’s nothing more inspiring than a classic piece of audio gear and Acme Audio’s Opticom ($2,750) is precisely that: a modern day classic. Inspired by the Teletronix LA2A, the Opticom XLA-3 MKII is an all-tube optical limiter that offers a simple, elegant design with compression character that ranges from smooth and natural to aggressive and dirty. The 10.5 lb, 2U Opticom has a 20Hz to 20kHz +/- 1.4 dB frequency response and up to 29 dB of gain reduction (with 34 dB of makeup).  MORE

Gearing Up With “The Trio Of Oz”

Date: 06/11/2015

by Rich Tozzoli. Recently I’ve been working on a recording project that was just so refreshing, I wanted to write about it. Sometimes, especially after being in this crazy biz for a while, each of us can get stale. Sometimes we forget that music is supposed to be creative, inspiring and fun, and that recording projects can often push us into uncomfortable places where we hopefully come out better off than we were going in. And when the mutual parties involved trust each other enough, the technology involved often disappears, allowing the focus to be solely on making great music.  MORE
