The IGS Neox 500-Series Preamp & Compressor is a microphone preamplifier and compressor combo fitted into a single 500-series module. It is created using advanced transformerless design, providing low noise signal path, excellent dynamic response, and maintenance free usage for years.The IGS Neox 500-Series Preamp is an affordable 500-Series mic pre and compressor, suitable for any audio application. The preamp section features 60dB of adjustable gain boost, phantom power, phase flip and 70 Hz high pass filter. The compressor section is based on the VCA principle, using highly specialized IC, supported by an external circuitry, that controls the attack and release times. The envelope of the release time consist of two stages - the amount of gain reduction lowers by 80% within the first 150ms and by further 20% within the next 450ms. This unique feature helps the IGS Neox 500-Series Preamp to behave like an optical compressor. User has an access to the THRESHOLD level knob, RATIO (1:1 to 100:1 soft compression to hard limiting), OUTPUT level and the bypass switch.

Comprehensive metering is also available on the front panel. 5-Led VU meter showing the module output level and 5-Led Gain Reduction meter displaying the amount of signal reduction achieved by the VCA compressor.
