Reproduction of famous EMI compressor
The Chandler RS124 compressor is a faithful reproduction of the original EMI Road RS124, made famous in Abbey Road studios. Chandler worked in close partnership with Abbey Road and EMI to produce this brand new version of the classic compressor.
The Chandler RS124 is incredible smooth. It can tame transients without sucking life out of the source and became an instant classic. Its unmistakable sound can be heard on many classics from the Beatles, Pink Floyd and many more. The RS124 is ideal for tracking, mixing and even mastering (with two units paired). It is an integral part of the legendary Abbey Road sound.
Chandler's new iteration brings some interesting updates for modern use. First of all, it combines three different historic models into one unit. The three units 60070B, 60050A and 61010B offered different performance. Both the 60050A and 61010B were favoured on bus or entire mixes while the 60070B was for tracking. These modes are featured on the adjustable attack, another improvement on the original. Another appointment is the Superfuse which engages a more aggressive personality.
