Urei 1176 Vintage Rev H

From: $35.00



The Universal Audio 1176 Compressor/Limiter was first introduced in 1968, created by Bill Putnam Sr. as the solid state successor to his tube-based 176 limiting amplifier. The 1176 uses a Field Effect Transistor, or FET, as a voltage divider to accomplish the task of compression, in conjunction with I/O transformers and a Class A line level amplifier. The 1176 was meant to be a “true peak limiter” with a very fast attack of up to 20 microseconds, and lots of gain for a compressor: up to 45 dB
