Volfram Limiter




Stereo FET Compressor

IGS Audio Volfram limiter is a dual mono version of the legendary 1176 archetype studio limiter.

The core of versatility of sound of the 1176 lies in the balance between the Input, Output, and Release knobs.

The Legacy:

1176 is a very well known and appreciated compressor in professional recording studios all over the world. If you’ve already heard how well this compressor works with vocals, you many never be able to manage without one! Additionally the Volfram works great with drums, synths and any other sources.

Legendary FET design, two linkable channels, Wet/Dry mix knob for parallel compression

Volfram limiter is a 45dB transistor amplifier equipped with a remarkable limiter. Compression is achieved with the FET transistors. At extreme settings the Volfram adds some pleasant distortion to the output. All manipulators are 12-pole (6-pole for ratio, HPF) switches. It is a pure A class circuit.

Quick service and reasonable price. Angus was helpful and transparent.20/07/23 Update. I had an issue with some equipment that I purchased from these guys, and true to form, they were supportive and gave me consistent feedback on the progress of my concern. Elliot and Darren were incredibly committed to getting me a satisfactory result. I have recommended Factory Sound to my mates because I actually believe that they will be taken care of.

The only place to buy pro audio gear from. Been coming here for over 20 years, and a lot of the same staff still look after me. Says a lot about their business. The best service, advice and gear every single time. If they don’t have it, they’ll get it for you. No need to worry about pricing, theirs is ALWAYS the best. All the staff go out of their way to help you, and will always get back to you. Cant’ recommend this place enough, 5 stars doesn’t seem like enough.
