Chandler Limited TG12413 Zener Limiter Details

The Chandler Limited TG12413 Zener Limiter is the ultimate EMI TG limiter issued in celebration of the 75th birthday of Abbey Road Studios. The Zener Limiter was conceived by Chandler Limited designer Wade Goeke and is based on the vintage EMI circuits used to record The Beatles and Pink Floyd. It continues the tradition of EMI limiters started in 1954 with the RS114 tube limiter and the 1968 RS168 Zener Limiter. The Zener Limiters were also part of the 1969 TG12345 console channel and the 1974 TG12413. This newest version borrows from the RS168 Zener Limiter and TG12345 console strip to make a new full featured and flexible unit for modern use. The Zener Limiter is being reissued to add features and flexibility to the powerful and vintage sounding TG limiter circuits. Wade has added many new controls including switchable input impedance for hard or soft driving of the unit, 11-position attack, 21-position release, side chain filtering, and Comp 1, Comp 2 and Limit settings. A simple limiter from the rich past of EMI and Abby Road has now come full circle into a modern powerhouse suitable for recording, mixing and mastering. The rest is new EMI/Abbey Road/Chandler Limited history.

Chandler Limited TG12345 Curve Bender EQ Details

The EMI TG12345 Curve Bender is the ultimate TG equalizer issued in celebration of the 75th birthday of Abbey Road Studios. The Curve Bender was conceived by Chandler Limited designer Wade Goeke and Abbey Road senior engineer Peter Cobbin and is based on the vintage EMI TG12345 desk used to record The Beatles and Pink Floyd. This newest EMI equalizer continues the tradition of EMI eqs started in 1951 with the RS56, affectionately entitled the Curve bender by EMI designers and continued with the TG12345 in 1968, and TG12412 in 1974. The newest version takes the simple but beautiful sounding TG12345 equalizer and realizes it in a fully featured and rethought package for today's use.

During his mixing of numerous Beatles related projects including, Anthology, Yellow Submarine, and Imagine, Peter Cobbin thought of having a fully featured and ultimately flexible version of the original desk eq units. After Wade presented him with a working version of the famed console eq Pete realized his time had come and set Wade to making his unit. Peter asked for four bands and filters based on the slopes of the original desk but with overlapping and expanded choices. Wade turned the 9 selections on the vintage version into 51 eq points plus a multiply switch that increases the boost/cut to 15db (as well as sharpening the Q), filters, and bell/shelf selections on the high and low bands. The Curve Bender now comes standard with 1/2dB steps in the boost/cut and gain controls.

A simple equalizer from the rich past of EMI and Abbey Road has now come full circle into a modern powerhouse suitable for recording, mixing, and mastering. The rest is NEW Chandler Limited/EMI/Abbey Road history
