The Chandler LTD-2 is a 1U rack-mounted hand-made single-channel compressor derived from classic Neve 2254/2264/33609 compressor/limiter designs.
Only the Chandler LTD-2 seems capable of putting such treasures into your hands as the vintage Neve 2254 and 2264 designs. Those originals might still be around, but you don't have one and besides, they cost a fortune compared to contemporary units. And they need serious maintenance to bring them up to date. But with the LTD-2, Chandler Limited has harnessed the sonic purity and tone that made these units so collectible and recreated them for the modern age.
Retaining the original Class A circuitry and transformers from the 10-Series and 2254 designs, and incorporating the 80-Series control circuit, the Chandler LTD-2 has enabled the dynamic handling and frequency response so beloved of engineers to remain unchanged. Chandler has added an attack switch and re-calibrated the release times to accommodate modern mixing styles.
The care and attention that has gone into building the LTD-2 is very much in evidence. Mellifluous, creamy, smooth and musical are just some of the terms used to describe the purity of the Chandler LTD-2 sound. Try one for yourself and then you'll need to make up some words of your own to describe the experience.
