Comparison: Chandler TG1 & RFZ V713

So, this is not a real Shootout. Just some files to show you the different character of these two fantastic comps/limiters.
Cheers.

Thanks, don't know anymore. I found a pic, hope the helps.
If I remember it right this wasn't my recording though. I think it was a Looploft Loop.

Nice from you to give update to this old topic, of course i can imagine it's not easy to remember details of the unit.
The pics you attached look very similar to the one which has just been sold on Reverb, which was V713/1h i think.I'll try to attach the Reverb pics here too as a comparison
Anyway, do you know if the different revisions really imply sonic differences?

Cheers

Cracki, I think I am the one having your old compressors. =)

Bought them recently, but unfortunately received them a bit messed up .
They sound truly amazing. Like nothing else I have ever tried before.
When they start to flatten out attack and transients, it at the same time adds a heft and punch that makes it impossible to thin out the material as you would on most other comps.

They surprisingly suck on vocals IMO, but on drums and as a 2bus comp, MAMMA MIA! It´s the biggest sounding compressor I´ve ever heard, and I´ve tried a few..

Will send them to my tech for service.

Thanks for posting the clips, they helped a lot in buying theese.
