Vintech Audio 609CA (Neve 33609 / 2254) Compressor/Limiter


This truly rich sounding Stereo Compressor/Limiter is based on the Neve 33609, but with the glorious output amplifiers from the Neve 2254.   The compressors and limiters work independently, making this like have two separate units, in one box!

What we think:

The Vintech 609 is a stereo compressor and limiter based on the original Neve 33609, with output amplifiers based on the Neve 2254..  The 33609 is known for it’s extreme flexibility and its ability to transparently handle heavy compression, and the 2254 is renowned for it’s big fat color.  With the Vintech 609CA you can affordably get the best of both worlds, depending on how you drive the unit.  Be sure to watch our video series to see this truly in action. 

Vintech has once again amazed us with an awesome Neve inspired unit.  This compressor is honestly one of our favorites in this entire building, and it seems to have a place on pretty much every session, whether it be drums, buss compression, guitars, vocals, or even entire mixes.  Having independent control over a separate compressor and limiter in one package, for two channels is a pretty incredible thing.  Because you get both a compressor AND a limiter for each channel, it’s basically like four-channels of compression/limiting in a single box.   The color can be manipulated from transparent, to very, very rich, and everything in between.
