I am guessing that a Fairchild 670 and the Big ole gates mentioned earlier are similar. The Sta-levels are real good, but the 26U has a magical something.
I heard Collins 26U last week. I think 26U might be one of most underrated limiter.

Daking FET II...awesome vocal comp. It's not real creamy but it sweetens the sound nicely and is very smooth. Release time switch is a mini museum of all-time classic compressors. Love it on vocals with good preamps. $1600.

That's the thing: I have favorite colors, and shades of colors, and flavors of ice cream, and flavors of vocal compression. Apparently, other people do too.

Change 'the best' to 'your favorite', it might allow you to participate in discussions rather than judge them obliquely and remain safely uninvolved.

Or not.

Anamod 670

The biggest problem with the Anamod 670 is that bad-pass filter between your two ears.

I swear to God if Dave and Greg built in a bunch of non-functional glowing tubes and jacked the price way way up, people would SWEAR the Fairchild 670 has finally been replaced.

The "thinking too much" filter can really kill your signal!

Hi Bee,
They are the broadcast sized 31114's . The meters on these used to be remote mounted in the consoles. If you see Geoff Tanners posts, you'll see the original Metal knobbed 33609 is just 2 of these in a box with some meters. They sound great on lots of things, but please don't tell anyone or they will get wicked expensive like every other holy grail box ; )
