Presenting our take on the classic American 1176 compressor for the 500 series format!
The RE-76X has been meticulously designed to recreate the timbres of nuances of vintage-era FET compressors featuring variable attack/release, a parallel mix control, sidechain highpass filtering and a hardware bypass switch for true A/B comparison.
RE-76X Compressor at a Glance:
Simple controls make dialing in the perfect compression easy:
Ever try to dial in compression and get immediately slammed with option anxiety? "Did that attack sound better a 20ms or 25ms?" It's a serious issue that can trip you up and ruin your workflow. Lindell gets around this problem elegantly with the RE-76X without robbing you of effective dynamics control. You set the RE-76X's attack and release with 11 way high quality rotary switches. Wether you're trying to punch up a bass track or mellow out some vocals, the Lindell RE-76X is the right tool for the job.
Mix control lets you crush your sound, without losing definition:
Here's another common scenario: you're trying to get an absolutely MASSIVE kick sound, so you crush the living snot out of that track and just when you've given it all the umph you need, you realize that the transient from the beater's completely buried in the mix. Normally, that's when you give a profound sigh, zero out your compressor and start over from scratch. RE-76X compressor saves you that frustration with its mix control, allowing you to beef up your compression and the blend in the dry signal to bring back some of the original dynamics. So go ahead, set your RE-76X to "all-in" mode and abuse your tracks. The parallel mix function always brings you back to golden.Highpass sidechain filter allows you to fine-tune your dynamics: Want to compress your snare sound, but the kick keeps pushing you over the threshold? No worries - the RE-76X compressor's onboard highpass sidechain filter is ready to come to the rescue. With three settings to choose from (off, 100Hz, and 300Hz) it's easy to block out lows and reclaim your dynamics control. And best of all, you get all the benefits of sidechaining, without needing to patch external signal into your RE-76X.
