ADL 1700 Variable Mu Compressor


Variable Mu compressor inspired by vintage UA 175-B and 177 compressors but with added features for increased flexibility and control!

What we think:

We've got one in our studio already, and it's proving to be quite a workhorse for vocals and bass guitars.  We'll have more information available soon, as well as some great videos.  If you have any questions in the meantime, give us a call or shoot us an email and we'd be happy to talk more with you about the ADL 1700.

Manufacturer Description:

The ADL 1700 Liquid Mu Peak Limiter is often referred to as the little brother of the Fairchild 670. The 1700 employs an all discrete tube design modeled after and a cross between the vintage UA 175-B and 177 limiter except we enhanced some features for added flexibility. Unlike an opto limiter, the 1700 uniquely reduces the Mu or gain as the input signal is increased.
Versatility is a hallmark of Anthony DeMaria's latest creation. The ADL 1700 Liquid MU Peak Compressor/Limiter has myriad practical applications in the recording studio, including tracking and mixing vocals and instruments, plus sweetening the stereo buss. It is also a highly useful tool for live concert sound reinforcement, as well as film and broadcast mixing.
Handcrafted in the USA, the ADL 1700 features an all discrete tube design, transformer in/out, 90Hz high pass filter switch, bypass switch, heavy-duty chassis, and more.
