The Tube-Tech CL 1B is a modern classic for a very good reason. Particularly as a vocal compressor, its combination of the characteristic warm, slow decay of opto-gain and surprisingly versatile performance that may sound like bad has made it a staple for a wider variety of genres than perhaps any other optical compressor. Classic rock, cutting edge pop, rap and hip-hop, EDM … whatever.
This version of the Mk II benefits from a complete re-modeling of the sound from the ground up using decades of experience, technology and know-how. Sounds better than ever. And it looks fresh too, with cutting edge high-definition graphics. Not to mention updating the feature, adding side-to-side low-pass filters and side-mixing.
What’s your new favorite compressor? It could just be.
