IGS Audio: S-Type - Stereo Mix Bus Compressor

The S-Type is a typical VCA compressor well known as the core of the legendary British sound. The heart of the compressor is the THAT chip instead of, now unavailable, DBX. However the classic sound and speed of the compressor has been preserved. 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.

Best compressor for external drum machines 
Bus 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.
