Based On the Classic 1176 Revision D In the late '60s, the 1176 was the first of its kind as a top-notch limiter, and much attention went into the design of your WA76 Discrete Compressor to make this affordable revamp like the original. Employing USA-made CineMag input and output transformers, your WA76 gives you a pristine discrete signal path with lightning-fast response. Whether you want to slam your sound to the max or add just a subtle taste of compression, this compressor has the touch you're looking for.
Oh yes, and the WA76 supports the infamous "all buttons in" mode -- just in case you're going for a little extra distortion on guitars, or that delayed response to transients that can yield a super-punchy drum track.
Simple, Easy-to-Use Panel Layout Your WA76 compressor's front panel has a simple layout without any unnecessary flair -- just as you might hope from an 1176 clone. You have your input and output controls, and your attack and your release. Your attack time spans from 20 microseconds to 800 microseconds, and your release time covers 50 milliseconds to 1 second. This gives you a serious amount of control over how your compression kicks in, allowing you to get nice lightning-fast compression when you want it.
A Compressor for Any Source Perhaps the best thing about your WA76 Discrete Compressor is its universal applicability. Kick, snare, toms, vocals, guitar, bass -- you name it, your WA76 has got you covered. Of course, this baby has a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, so there's nothing too elusive for this pristine machine to capture. Since this compressor is such a steal, you might just want two of them for stereo compression for your keys, drum overheads, or room microphones.
With the WA76, Warm Audio puts an 1176 clone in your rack at an affordable price.
