  • Features

The Chandler Germanium Compressor is a single channel 1U compressor from tone aficionados Chandler Ltd.

Classics of the past, germanium transistors seem to have fallen out of fashion in recent decades. In their heyday they were responsible for beautifully characterful tones and classic sounds as heard on a huge range of recordings from the 60s and 70s. Chandler saw fit to put this right, and have developed and brought out a range of germanium transistor based products, including this Chandler Germanium Compressor. The aim of which was to revive the once revered and highly sought after sound of the germanium transistor and bring it right up to date for the modern recording environment. The range of products Chandler have brought to market that utilise the germanium is far reaching, meaning this superb tone is not available for all aspects of the recording process, and has been developed with great care and due attention as with all of Chandler’s products.

The Chandler Germanium Compressor makes use of the full range of warmth and fullness of tone that comes with a germanium based audio unit. Chandler have also made use of the gain section of the germanium pre in order to get the most out of the Chandler Germanium Compressor dynamic effect. There is a feedback control that can be used alongside the input gain in order to drive a harder sound, yielder greater harmonic and musical distortion, along with saturation. There are three compressor curves available on the Chandler Germanium Compressor; being germanium, zener and silicon. This gives a range of expressive dynamic control and a set of unique dynamic tones at your disposal. Other features a side chain filter, and a handy mix control that manages the blend between wet and dry signals.

The Chandler Germanium Compressor brings back the legendary sound of the germanium thanks to a high spec and musical compressor.
