IGS Audio PHOTON 500 is an optical compressor, based on technology from the 60’s, first used in the early LA-2A limiters and later in the LA4.

PHOTON 500 uses an opto-coupler, which introduces negative feedback in the audio path, taking care of gain reduction, being the basics of all compression.

It has an electronically balanced input with a 2520 compatible op-amp in the gain stage.

The output is balanced by an IGS Custom made transformer.

FROM THE SHOP FLOOR

“It rejects off-axis sounds brilliantly, so there’s no danger of other drums or instruments bleeding into the kick drum recordings. This saves a lot of time and effort during the EQ stage of the mixing process.”

Darren, Head of Technical Sales
