Sounds brilliant as always. When I saw the price it was an instabuy. Weirdly enough it kind of reminds me of an 1176.

Thx for the good words :)

Exactly that's the idea. A cheap compressor so you can have more than one on different patches, like drums, synths etc.
Even if it's cheap we used only high-grade components, so the module is suitable both for live and recording.
The op-amps used are NE5532.

It's the kind of compressor I like (especially for the rack) simple controls, clear effect on the sound, and low noise. Great work. I have your Pre-KM and 106 Chorus and really love them.

Sounds great and I have 5 or 6 of your modules, so I’ll still probably grab a pair, but would love to have seen a sidechain input.

Wasn't in the market for the new module, heard the sound, saw it was 60 euros, bought it immediately.

Great timing. I was just looking at compressor modules and found your post. At this price point and hearing the demos I just ordered two. Looking forward to a different approach to drums and or bass and processing them with applied compression as it exits the modular. Instead of after the fact applying compression in the daw.

I would add that Andrei packages everything wonderfully. :yay:

Has anyone else been waiting on this for a bit? I ordered this a month ago. Is this just covid-19 issues, or should I contact them?

Mine has been in "transit" for 24 days now. I would say probably due to covid. It shows it left Romania, but there hasn't been any information after that.

Mine is resting at DHL Cologne since 8 days without any update (I ordered on 16.06.). On the website (DHL) it says that one should wait at least 10 days before calling them because of the increased number of pakages due to covid.

Mine arrived today. Exactly 30 days after ordering. No complaints. Just glad they made it. Will go into the rack tonight and will be thoroughly tested with some kick drums and bass.
