Yep, we are designing our own compressor. We went back to first basics, looked at ancient and modern compression techniques, and inputted our
own ideas. So the result is an amalgam of some existing ideas, with new design elements together cloning allowed. Its a fully discreet unit with ( at present ) three signal transformers and one side chain transformer per channel!. The design criteria's for this unit are simple -- sound and usability. Yes the noise floor is good at - 90 db, headroom at +26db into 600R etc. But you can do all that with a couple of IC's. This works but will not create that special audio signature that it seems only equipment
designed and built the hard way does. Which is why we have ignored the easy way, because those figures are static, not dynamic, not moving as music does.
So we measure of course, but we mostly listen and adjust, listen and modify, listen and start again.
Soon a couple of pre-production prototypes will be out on trial with engineers, producers and musicians.
We want their input and then its back to adjust, modify and ... start again? So we will keep you posted.
