Fet Limiting amplifier is based on the classic design revision D unit.
It is an all discrete design that sounds like an 1176 should, a great
compressor that is smooth when compressing, has excellent bass response
and makes you want to use it on everything!
Our current model uses Custom Cinemag
transformers in conjunction with a custom designed Mu76
Revision D is often described as being the smoothest of all
versions of the 1176 lineage. Cinemag was kind enough to design us a
custom input transformer keeping the UTC-012 original design in mind
while imparting that wonderful Cinemag tone and wonderful
like most 1176's, functions differently than your average compressor in
that there is no external threshold control. The user simply drives the
input into the preset threshold to induce compression. This is not only
one of the things that makes the 1176 sound so good, but also what
makes it a mystery to some users. An interesting side note is that
the line amp inside the card that drives the signal into
compression can also be used in bypass as a mic preamp with around 45
Db of gain and is similar to the line amp used in the famous 1108
preamp of course without pad, phase or phantom.

My parents taught me to
invest my money wisely
and that I
shouldn't simply be buying something, I should be investing in
something. As my
dad was heard to say after a long debate over the new fridge " I only
want to buy this fridge once!"
understand that Audio is your business and is an investment. I have
designed all of our preamps and compressors not only to sound second to
none but to last for years and years to come.
