IGS Audio V8 mastering compressor is built with discrete components and six IGS Customs transformers (three per channel).

The element responsible for the compression is the bridge, composed of 4 matched pulse diodes. A device is a dual-mono unit with the option of linking the sidechain circuitry. All controls are stepped, for channel matching and recall.

The punch and clarity your mixes are lacking

V8 compressor is equipped with a HPF on the sidechain circuitry. This feature allows you to cut the lowest frequencies from the signal, before they hit the compressor stage, and allow a single instrument, such as the kick drum, to go through without the pumping effect. An additional switch on the front (+10THR) lowers the compressor’s threshold level by an extra 10dB. This feature is useful when compressing very low signals, or for very strong compression.

The typical application for IGS Audio V8 is bus compression. However, due to its nature and the incredible range of tone and color settings, uses of the V8 compressor are unlimited.

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
