Annonces Tube-Tech CL1A
The configuration is pretty basic for an outboard compressor and is easy to setup. I've never had to use the manual so I can't say how useful it is - it is really easy to control and I'm not sure the manual would teach me much I couldn't figure out by simply just using it. If you have access to the manual though, I would take a lot at it as I'm not sure what the nformation that it possesses is.
The Tube Tech CL1A is as warm as any compressor I have used. This compressor works great on vocals, but would probably sound good on anything that you would want compressed including drums, guitars and bass. Its extremely easy to get a nice sounding, full sounding compressed signal with. I track vocals with it all the time, and it adds a loudness and warmth to it that I can only get with real tubes like this has.
I've been using the CL1A for about a year. It is one of my favorite compressors and have always heard good things from other people about how much they like it. It it one of many compressors that I use, but if I only had to use one this certainly wouldn't be a bad choice. I can't say enough about the unique warmth that this adds, and while it definitley costs a pretty penny that most home studio owners can't afford, it is a top of the line compressor that is used in a professional studio environment. It can color the sound with warmth or you can get a cleaner signal depending on the way you set it. Overall this is my favorite Tube Tech model even though they make a number of great sounding compressors.
Using this compressor is pretty easy overall. I'd say that using it is pretty easy, though it does have a few more features than most compressors do. It has a knob for gain, threshold, attack and release, as well as a ratio knob (ratio goes from 2:1 to 10:1, which is a pretty decent range). There are also knobs which change the mode of operation (manual, fixed, and fixed/manual). Basically, if you know what you are doing with compression, this will work just fine. I haven't seen the manual for this piece of equipment so I don't know what it entails, I doubt there are many people who still have the manuals.
I like the sound of this compressor a lot. It really warms and fattens up tone quite a bit. It's great at bringing vocals out front and kicking them up a notch or two. It's also great on other instruments for the same reason, it's definitely a compressor that will slightly color the sound but I'd say that it's almost always in a good way. I probably wouldn't want to use this on a voice-over job since that usually tends to be cleaner and less warm. But I'd say that you can get everything from a light limiting compression to a full-on squashed tone and it will all sound good.
I like the warmth and tone of this compressor a lot, it really fattens up sounds nicely. It's pretty expensive, so save up! Definitely only for studio owners, there's plug-in versions of it available that would work fine for home studio owners.
