Wow, surprisingly low for Heritage (NOT COMPLAINING!). May I ask if this is a part of/made in same factory as the Elite series?
Thx

I am wondering how colored this box is going to be? And how that color will affect a mix if the box is placed in 2 Bus chain (final compressor)?

In my understanding it's all about adding color on the 2 bus.

I'm wondering if it's safe to assume that Warm Audio is going to follow HA's release of this unit with something very comparable? If this one is $1499, then Warm's might be $1299? Pure speculation. Warm has just released a couple new mics, but it's been a bit since they brought a compressor to the table. I was going to preorder, but I'll wait awhile...

Certainly possible, but Heritage already had 2 diode bridge comps in their line up (the 500 series 2264Jr and 80 series 2264E) whereas Warm doesn't have that starting base. Not that it precludes Warm from doing it, just that it gives Heritage a head start in a way since they can take designs they already have and, I assume, reduce a lot of prototyping and such.

So I wonder if the Successor would be too much color if my mix is already going through a Silver Bullet and a few other Louder Than Liftoff Mr. Focus Modules?
I really want to pull the trigger on this box as it seems quite good on paper. But I need to know how colored it is.
Also looking at the Tegeler Creme and the much more affordable Audio-Scape GSSL as possible alternatives for getting the Successor.
Going to hold off until I at least hear a few reviews and maybe some video demos etc.

Totally. Great point. I've got the HA 2264jr and it's pretty fantastic. They've certainly got that compression type nailed.

Off topic: I have to pinch myself every time I'm in the studio these days. I've got a ton of outboard pieces that I never thought I'd be able to afford. I used to lust after these pieces when I worked in the big studios in my area. I thought MAYBE I'd own an 1176 someday, now I've got 3 and 2 la-2a's. Nutty.

I would expect it to add colour, and in that case be a box you’re better off mixing into rather than inserting after you’ve completed the mix.

Same here, and the Tegeler magnetismus 2 also. Decisions, decisions...

I emailed Heritage a week ago off there website asking about whether the Successor could be used in other ways other than the 2 buss.

Havent heard back from them.

I definitely like what it does on the buss but would be interested to see if it would be good for tracking regardless of it being a stereo box.

Cheers

Why wouldn't it? Many people use stereo compressors for tracking. Either just one side with a mono source or for double tracking where same attack/ratio/release settings fit both sources.

So does this have 3x Carnhill per channel?

I wonder if there’s any way to get a cleaner sound out of this thing? Want it bad, but need to know I can get more, or less color, as desired.

Dead keen on trying this...bit of a thing for diode bridges.

Bit of a shame to see only 10dB of makeup gain but for the mix bus that’s golden. I do occasionally like, when treating single tracks or stems, using that 33609 output gain pot as a super-opinionated line amplifier though

Sure it will sound super in any event - nice one
