Say Hello To The Schwerkraftmaschine


Tegeler Audio Manufaktur tells us that, after a lot of planning, programming, soldering, and listening, the vision of  founder Michael Krusch has become a reality: The Schwerkraftmaschine , originally announced some time ago, is now here. They say that, built on an analog tube signal path and remote-controllable by plug-in, this extraordinary compressor allows both classic and completely new compression combinations.

Michael Krusch says, "At Tegeler Audio Manufaktur, we design our products first and foremost with sound and musicality in mind. The Schwerkraftmaschine makes the difference between 'well mixed' and 'sounds perfect'."

Here's more details in the company's own words...

For the Schwerkraftmaschine, the German manufacturer went with the analog tube signal path of the proven Vari Tube Compressor, but replaced the side-chain with a chip that calculates the compression and enables it to emulate nearly any type of compressor on the market. The Schwerkraftmaschine can be remotely controlled via a plug-in (AU, VST, AAX) allowing all settings to be saved in the DAW. The hardware unit is equipped with servomotors so that the controls match the plug-in settings at all times. Users can recall their favorite settings with presets and can even automate the analog parameters, allowing for different settings within various parts of a track.

A variable side-chain-filter that works both as lowcut and as a tilt-EQ, as well as a mixer that blends compressed and uncompressed signals makes the Schwerkraftmaschine even more flexible.

Pricing and Availability:
The Schwerkraftmaschine is hand-manufactured from high-quality components in Germany and is available for EUR 3,499 / $3,599

Tegeler Audio Manufaktur offers a 14 days Try-Before-You-Buy Program free of charge.
