Passive transformer use

Hey Ross, thanks for taking the time to do this.
I saw in an interview you mentioned using passive transformers inline on your mix buss. have you had much success with this? are they just 1:1? are you using attenuators before or after?
it's something i've thought about doing but haven't found the time.
thanks again.
cheers, jeremy

I love the sound of iron ..so a while back my buddy Devin Powers, who is a great friend and gear maniac
and i started playing around with passive 1:1 transformers separately together ..
for the way they smooth out the harsh corners of digital
its very interesting what they do
you can wire them so they blow up and distort but thats not really what I am looking for
i just like how they add grit and punch
sometimes they are just on my drum crush mult
i like the overstayer fet compressor as drum crusher but sometimes its a little brittle so with the transformers they add a girth to the crunch

Hi Ross, Steve Daffner. How You Been?

When you do this they just go inline after the compressor? What form factor are they in? Like a Di project box?

Care to divulge which transformers gave what results?
Thanks man
