| The Vintage Audio MSL is a stereo channel VCA buss
compressor with a familiar architecture. The MSL utilizes dual RMS detection,
dual VCA compression and provides all of that great glue needed at mix
down. It has a healthy list of Practical features with a sound that
costs twice as our competitors. We build these using nothing
but the finest components. Take advantage of the introductory pricing!
has a selectable Ratio, Attack, Release, and Sidechain input with
frequency selections that we found to be most useful to mix engineers.
The frequencies range from 60Hz to 440Hz, a useful function for
tracking and mixing instruments like piano or other percussion
Compression character is one of the main reasons engineers reach for a
certain piece to do the job. In the MSL,
though you will most likely find yourself leaving it in normal mode,
we have incorporated the Detect Out feature to remove one of the RMS
sidechain circuits. This feature provides great character and an
aggressive compression. The feature is nice for effects, squashing
room mics or other sources that simply need to be aggressively
Sometimes it is hard to tell exactly what is happening to the program
material when using subtle compression. Our True Bypass is a perfect
solution, it routes the input directly to the output completely
bypassing the compressor and all line amp stages.
Left and Right Vu Meters illuminate the front panel and dance to the
music! The Vu meter selector allows you to choose: Input, Output and
Aggregate Gain Reduction.
Compression bypass allows the user the ability to bypass the
compression but still run signal thru the line amplifiers for
These beautiful Buss Compressors are handmade here in our shop in the
USA and are completely hand wired like all of our models.
The Vintage Audio MSL utilizes
my custom designed MUSE Mainboard and has excellent on board filtering
and Ac ripple knockdown.

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!"
We 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.
These are handmade here in our shop in the USA!
