Overview

The 1173 brings together two timeless circuits: the 1073 preamp and studio FET compressor. The marriage of these two analog classics opens up an entirely new sonic palette in the studio, either as a standalone piece in a project studio or as a unique addition to a heavily fortified rack of outboard gear.

The 1173 owes its unique character to the combined analog mojo of its 1073 preamp and FET compressor circuit. It features the recognizable FET compressor controls for input and output gain and the time-honored compression ratio options of 4:1, 8:1, 12:1, and 20:1. Attack and release controls allow users to tailor the compressor’s action to best suit a given source. While the 1073 preamp helps bring depth and clarity to your audio on the front end, the FET compressor kicks in to manage peaks, adding control and thickness to the signal. Drums, bass, vocals, and synths are among the many sound sources that will truly sing with the 1173.

Features

  • Combined 1073 and studio FET compressor circuits
  • 1073 preamp brings depth and clarity to your audio
  • FET compressor levels the peaks and controls dynamic audio
  • Time-honored compression ratio options of 4:1, 8:1, 12:1, and 20:1
  • Warm, analog sound
