70's compressor. Beautiful on bass, vocals, guitars, etc.
The Urei 1176LN
Peak Limiter is the most
widely used device of its kind. Since its inception in the late '60s, thousands
have been used for applications which require precise, automatic control of
peak signal levels in recording studios, disc mastering facilities, broadcast
stations, sound reinforcement installations, etc.
majority of 1176's produced over the years have been the 'F' revision. The main
distinction of this version is that the output amplifier is now switched from a
class ‘A’ to a class 'AB' push-pull type, which gives it more output drive.
Other characteristics remain the same as the earlier version.

1176LN, peak limiting is accomplished by utilizing an FET as a voltage variable
resistor. A unique circuit permits severe limiting without added distortion,
and the compression ratio may be optimized for various program materials.
is adjustable from less than 20 microseconds to 800 microseconds. The fast
attack time is independent of program peak frequency or duration. Using the
tone burst method, a 50 kHz peak is fully stabilized at the limited level
within 1 cycle. The release time is also continuously adjustable on the front
panel from 50 milliseconds to 1.1 seconds.
structure throughout the limiter also maintains an excellent signal-to-noise
ratio at normally used control settings. The front panel meter may be switched
to read either the amount of gain reduction or the output signal level
referenced to +4 or +8 dBm.
is made to interconnect two 1176LN Limiters for those applications where two
channels of program material are processed, and the balance of these audio
channels must be maintained. The signal with the larger peak-to-peak amplitude
will cause the same amount of gain reduction in both limiters. For this mode of
operation, the accessory Model 1176SA Stereo Adaptor is required (not
