IGS Audio S-Type 500-Series VCA Compressor


SSL style stereo compression PLUS wet/dry mix control for parallel compression, all at a fantastic price.

Manufacturer Description:

The S-Type is a typical VCA compressor well known as the core of British sound. The heart of the compressor is the THAT chip instead of the now unavailable DBX. The analogue path is balanced with ultra-fast op-amps. This is the source of completely transparent sound. A minimal level of noise allows the device to be used in recording classical music, including long range recording. The main new feature of the S-Type is the Sidechain HPF regulation. This allows the user to select the lowest frequencies which will not be compressed and more precisely control the bass and dynamics of the mix. Overall the S-Type is a very creative device.

Typical usage:

  • Great summing and mastering compressor
  • Beat compressor for external drum machines
  • Drum compressor for live drums
  • Can be used to compress single stereo instruments (pads, leads)
  • The S-Type is a precision dynamic range controller intended for use in the most demanding professional audio applications. RMS detection, high headroom input circuits and output drivers, give the S-Type its own sonic excellence.
