The 2-1176 boasts two channels of the Class A circuitry, custom designed output transformers, and FET-type gain reduction from the original 1176LN compressor all stereo matched for improved stereo imaging. You'll be amazed by the unique sound and stereo capabilities of the 2-1176 and this tool has come to the use of professional artists and engineers. Norah Jones with Jay Newland to Helmet with Charlie Clouser, have used its capabilities to help record their albums.
It features switchable options of "Link" mode for stereo compression, or "Dual" mono mode, and provides twice the features of the original in one unit. Furthermore, the 2-1176 also features the classic "All" buttons mode.
"The 2-1176 gets my highest recommendation. The 'All' setting sounded incredible on drum mic overheads, producing hyperventilating Led Zeppelin-style tracks."
Michael Cooper, Mix Magazine
