Spectra Sonics Model 610 Complimiter

The Spectra Sonics Model 610 Complimiter is a original version of the classic compressor and peak limiter. For decades the Model 610 could be found safeguarding levels to tape, strapped across the mix bus, and even before record lathes in some of the most well known recording studios in the world.

In 1969, Spectra Sonics unveiled the Model 610 Complimiter, a revolutionary audio compressor and limiter. Unique to this design was its ability to peak limit and compress audio separately. At the heart of the Model 610 were the 601 Compressor/Limiter module and 101 amplifier circuits. The Model 610s low noise floor, ultra-fast peak limiting and intelligent compression response made it an incredibly versatile unit and earned its status as a classic studio compressor. For decades the Model 610 could be found safeguarding levels to tape, strapped across the mix bus, and even before record lathes in some of the most well known recording studios in the world.

With the fastest peak limiter in the world and a compression attack time around 100 nanoseconds, the Model 610 Complimiter was the first device of this type to eliminate compression pumping and the need for de-essing, while maintaining full bandwidth at ratios of up to 100:1. In addition, the 610 is one of the few, if not the only device of this type, that rivals the best microphone preamps in terms of noise and distortion. Combined with an input threshold of -40dBu, the 610 offers the user the best of all worlds; peak-free transients, adjustable compression, low noise and distortion, and considerable amplifier gain.

Nearly 50 years after its release, the Model 610 still has specifications that go unrivaled in todays industry, proving Spectra Sonics founder William G. Dilley was decades ahead of his time. And now, a new generation of engineers is discovering the Spectra Sonics sound for themselves.
