IGS S-Type VU 500-Series Compressor

The IGS S-Type VU 500-Series Compressor is a Stereo VCA compressor best known for its ability to replicate the buss compressor of the legendary British large format console. A source of the completely transparent sound, the S-Type is a precise dynamic range controller intended for use in the most demanding professional audio applications.

The IGS S-Type 500-Series Compressor incorporates THAT integrated circuit instead of the now unavailable DBX at its heart. The analog path is balanced with ultra-fast op-amps. This is the source of the completely transparent sound. A minimal level of noise allows the device to be used in any musical setting. The IGS Audio has added Sidechain HPF, which allows the user to select the lowest frequencies to pass the unit uncompressed, enabling your mixes to breathe and avoid pumping.

Sidechain Functionality
The IGS S-Type 500-Series is a stereo compressor, featuring a large GR meter and four fast, modern op-amps on inputs and outputs, providing the perfect balance of this stereo circuit. Two channels of the unit are being summed together and used to control both VCA stages. This allows you to use the IGS S-Type 500-Series Compressor as an external side-chain compressor, where the signal goes through EXSC input. Last but not least, the MIX knob allows for parallel compression, so you can crush the living hell out of your tracks, and blend them with the dry signal for that NY drum sound. Overall, the IGS S-Type 500-Series Compressor is a very creative device. The IGS S-Type 500-Series Compressor features RMS detection, high headroom input circuits and output drivers.

Your Stereo Buss Deserves Better
The IGS S-Type 500-Series Compressor gives you the sound of compression from your favorite records, it's the magic glue for your mixes. It’s really hard to make it sound bad - from a gentle hug to an aggressive crush and anywhere in between. It serves you as your new go-to squeeze box.
