Retro Revolver - A Revolution in a Rack.
When you first put your ears to the Retro Revolver, you'll hear some very renowned compression, an element many have kept secret. The lively and vibrant dynamics come forward. Now you will know the sound, it's as inimitable as applesauce.
Seven Years of Development
As an experimental project in 2011, a few Retro Revolvers were built and ground tested with a few selected studios. It all started with the renowned British-modified Altec 436 compressor and added features you need for tracking, mixing and mastering. They got it right for Rev. A. Here it is.
The Retro Revolver puts you in Control
One of the most revolutionary features is that you get all the adjustments to dial in the type of dynamics you've heard on numerous albums. With added features like a side-chain filter, stereo linking and continuously variable threshold, attack and release.
Built like a Tank.
The Retro Revolver might be guilty of being slightly overbuilt in the USA, but it's definitely done intentionally to give you years of uninterrupted performance. Each unit passes a series of critical tests. Tubes and other components are selected for top performance and proper stereo tracking.
