Analog Stereo Compressor/Limiter In 500 Series Format


Alta Moda Audio have debuted the Hippo stereo compressor/limiter, the latest product in Alta Moda's expanding range of popular 500-series rack products.Here's all the details that they have sent us:
The Hippo is a VCA-type compressor/limiter housed in a 2-space 500-series compatible module. Modeled after well-regarded console bus compressors used throughout the '80's and '90's, the Hippo has many enhanced features including expanded control ranges, sidechain filters for better bass control, a warmth function for added harmonics, and Alta Moda's popular wet/dry blend control. A special feature of the Hippo is its ability to run in Dual Mono mode. This "unlinks" the sidechains and allows the channels to operate independently of one another.
Although primarily intended for mix bus and mastering applications, designer Paul Ricchiuti states, "Being able to unlink the channels makes the Hippo far more versatile than a conventional stereo compressor. Recording engineers will find the Hippo very useful for tracking duties where two matched mono compressors might be used; drum overheads, tom sub-mixes and keyboard tracking - to name just a few."
Pricing and Availability:
Retail price of the Hippo is $1,295.00. More information:
