Everyone loves the Universal
Audio 1176, one of THE classic, Compressor - Limiter archetypes.
From vocals to the Mix Buss, this FET-based dynamics processor is capable
of incredible amounts of Gain Reduction thanks to an anti-distortion combined
with single-ended Class-A audio amplifiers.
This "modern" kit version,
dubbed the SL-1176, employs the same side-chain and FET Gain Reduction
circuit as the most desirable "D" and "E" versions of Bill Putnam's famous
UA-1176, adding a Neve-style front end and the classic NEVE output circuit
featured in their 1066, 1073 and 1272 modules. By doing so,
we've preserved the smooth Class-A vibe of the original - with a British-Style
twist - made more affordable by using an off-the-shelf parts.
Scott's SL-1176-KIT consists
of five blank PCBs that we hope will inspire. Not only can
you build it just like the prototype below, but
you can also customize features or use the boards to prototype your own
ideas. We provide a few key components plus a parts list, you provide
the chassis, meter, pots, knobs and power transformer - the final
"production decisions" are yours!
The USA price for five silk-screened
circuit boards, selected FETs, low leakage diodes, Cinemag Input xfrmr,
Sowter Output xfrmr, output transistor and heatsink is $230 with shipping.
See Table-1 for itemized details.
