With the Glory Comp, Groove Tubes spares no expense in creating what they call "the very best tube compressor ever made." In addition to its incredible sonic character, the Glory Comp audio compressor offers features that have never been found on compression devices at any price.
The Groove Tubes Glory Comp is a true all-tube compressor, employing 7 high-quality, hand-selected vacuum tubes to accomplish its dynamics processing. Its output tubes -- a pair of 6005s -- offer tremendous output power driving a custom wound and robust output transformer (the Glory Comp can actually drive a speaker all on its own!). Fully differential and floating design includes dual isolated output taps on its proprietary output transformer so it can interface with both -10dBV and +4dBu signal levels without sacrificing signal quality or degrading noise specs.
Compression ratios from 1:1 to 10:1 are available, as are standard attack, release, and compression threshold controls. In addition to release times from 10ms to 2 seconds, users can choose between logarithmic and linear release modes. Several high-quality ceramic multi-decked switches (instead of less expensive potentiometers) allow for easily repeatable settings. The custom-built, backlit VU meter has 7 different display modes.
Built-in sidechain EQ with adjustable low and high frequency filters, using an internal or external side-chaining source selector. Unique Glory knob affects 2nd-order harmonics, perfect for bringing out a vocal or a solo instrument in a mix. The Glory knob is adjustable between Earth (no effect) and Heaven (full effect).
A no-compromise, transparent, rich all tube compressor with virtually NO tradeoff in frequency response loss, even in the most compressed settings (unlike many of today's high end compressors).
