VCA compressor - the core of the "British sound"
The S-Type is a typical VCA compressor well known as the core of the legendary British sound. The heart of the compressor is a THAT chip instead of, the now unavailable, DBX ic. However the classic sound and speed of the compressor has been preserved. The main new feature of the S-Type is the Sidechain HPF function. This allows the user to separate the lowest frequencies that will not be compressed and to control more precisely the bass and overall dynamics of the mix. The IGS Audio S-Type is a very creative device.
"It is like taking your favourite buss compressor from your beloved mixing desk, adding sidechain filtering - you come up with completely new possibilities!"
The S-Type is a precision dynamic range controller intended for use in the most demanding professional audio applications. RMS detection, high headroom input circuits and output drivers, give the S-Type its own sonic excellence. It is great not only for mastering purposes, but also for drums, wide synth pads and many other stereo sources!
