Purple Audio MC77 Limiter

The Purple Audio MC77 Limiter is a recreation of one of the most iconic solid state limiters made in history. Designed with modern components the MC77 is sure to be a classic of its own.

One significant component is the input attenuator. The input attenuator that was custom made for the original revisions A-F 1176 and for the Purple MC76 by Clarostat was discontinued in 2002. It was a J series T-pad attenuator with two 600 OHM "build out" resistors to keep a constant 600 OHM load on the source and primary of the input transformer. Clarostat changed carbon manufacturers and the new carbon manufacturer was unable to make the part. Purple temporarily stopped making the MC76 to find a solution. They tried several three deck Clarostat 70 series pots in different configurations to achieve the same loading and to match the taper. They found a solution that matched the original. Based on that feedback, from hundreds of satisfied MC76 users they incorporated useful new features into the new MC77.
