The 6386 and ES-8 are modern two channel limiters designed to have the compression characteristics of a vintage unit, but with a higher level of sonic accuracy.
The 6386 and ES-8 are modern two channel limiters designed to have the compression characteristics of a vintage unit, but with a higher level of sonic accuracy. Classic feedback compression based on the Fairchild 660 and 670 The 6386 uses the same gain control tube (remote cutoff triode) as the Fairchild 660 and 670. The ES-8 uses a more readily available (and less expensive) tube with the same compression characteristics as the 6386. Modern class A, solid-state gain make-up stage for wide bandwidth and low distortion Soft-knee design with smooth transition from compression to limiting Fast attack (0.5ms) and release times ideal for tight program compression or tracking Low noise and superior transient response Three sidechain operating modes: Fast, Presets and Manual Two completely independent channels with stereo linking Tubes calibrated for precise stereo balance Hard bypass switches for each channel Sidechain inserts for frequency-dependent compression and de-essing Transformerless balanced output stage capable of delivering +27dBu Soft-start warm-up with outputs bypassed until all voltages are stabilized Gold-plated relay contacts, I/O connectors and tube sockets Fully regulated high voltage (250V), filament and bipolar power supplies Custom toroidal power transformer with shield for minimum hum Polypropylene capacitors and metal film resistors Limited production, hand-built product
