The TUBECORE 500 is a full symmetric transformer balanced 500-series compressor. The structure is based on the typical vari mu solution. The TUBECORE 500 is a true tube mono compressor where compression is achieved using the remote cut-off of tube biasing. Could be used as a mono tracking compressor or (as a matched pair) as an advanced mastering tool.
VU METER – Big VU meter showing the amount of gain reduction.
THRESHOLD – Above this level of the input signal the compression will occur. Use it to control the amount of compression.
ATTACK – Time delay between the apperance of the signal and the compressor reaction.
RELEASE – Time delay between the disappearance of the signal and the compressor reaction.
GAIN – Input gain knob.
OUTPUT – Output level knob.
