Type: Dynamic Signal Processor
This is a heavily modified Altec 436. We have added an output attenuatior, speed control (which controls both attack and release time constants), threshold adjustment and release speed control. After all that, we found out it sounds best when working slowly and modestly. Not a general-purpose compressor, but nice on crooning vocalists and other slowly-modulating sounds.
There is one installed in each control room.
