Up for consideration is a brand new Warm Audio WA76 compressor / limiter -- a modern recreation of the classic Urei/Universal Audio 1176 Revision D limiter, complete with the original design Reichenbach/CineMag transformer. Originally released by Urei in 1968, the Bill Putnam design was the first solid-state peak-limiter on the market, and soon became a staple of every major recording studio for the last 50 years. It adds a pleasing edge / gritty / excitement, made things bigger, and excelled as a lead vocal comp, bring them out in a mix. Vintage units are now selling in the $2-3K range, so here is a great opportunity to own a brand new recreation -- at a jaw-dropping low price, and save about $2,000!!!

"WA76's can sound like an 1176, but they can also do their own thing. It is excellent on snare. We also used it on trumpet with a ribbon mic and it sounded huge!!!"
