Chandler Germanium Compressor
The Germanium series continues with the Chandler GERMANIUM Compressor. The Germanium Compressor starts with the same all class A amp found in the GERM Pre and Tone Control and is transformer balanced in and out. The Compression circuit uses a FET gain reduction element but with the tricks and flexibilty of all the GERM units. Some of the most notable additions include a WET/DRY mix (for “submixing” tracks within the comp), COMP CURVE (which selects the knee using various diode combinations), CLEAN/DIRTY COMP, and SIDECHAIN FILTER. Many of the Chandler GERM Compressor parameters have been purposely set by studio use and listening, not by over analysing them with test gear. The result is a musical powerhouse of a compressor!
