The IGS Audio Photon 500 is a 500 series opto compressor inspired by the LA-3A and LA4 compressor and limiter.

The IGS Audio Photon 500 is a single-channel compressor with simple controls based around Peak Reduction and Output knobs augmented by additional features accessible via four switches. A ratio control provides a choice of three ratios: 2:1, 4:1 and 12:1 while a Side chain HPF switch prevents unwanted compression triggered by excessive bass. Finally a Mode switch let you choose between smooth opto compression (London) and aggressive tone (New York).

The Photon 500 uses an electronically balanced input with an 2520 compatible op-amp and a Carnhill output transformer.

 IGS Audio Photon 500 Compressor Main Features:

  • Impedance: 10kOhm input, 600Ohm output via Carnhill transformer
