I emailed Josh about this recently and this is what I found out...

Email on 1/30:

The 5043 Limiter-Compressor has now been released to production, and
we will be selling them for $1,749.00 each.


And from another email dated 1/9:

The 5043 Limiter-Compressor is due to be released to production this
week with first articles being available in the next 4-6 weeks. The
pricing should be confirmed in the next couple of days, and I will
drop you a line as soon as I have firm pricing.

I'm really curious to hear it... I'm hoping it will be "aggresive" enough for rock/metal.

Yeah I talked to the boys at RN a few weeks ago. I asked them if it was close in sound to the 33609 and one of them indicated "That 's what we were striving for".

Pretty darn exciting at that price point.

I hope a little more coloured than the masterpiece compressor, which is a mastering compressor so being not coloured makes absolutely sense...

I'd like some creamy transformers in there, to play with. some real character. doesn't have to be the same as an older precursor.
a nice deep sound coming from a little box?

.... seems to be delayed unfortunately. Shouldn´t it be launched already ?
I don´t get my mails regarding the lauch timing answered at the moment.

It is a pity, as I have to choose now for a compressor for my Portico 5032.
