Title
Serpent Audio SB4001 Buss Compressor
Content
The SB4001 is a full-featured buss compressor for the 500-series or 51x Alliance formats. The SB4001 is based off of Serpent Audio' s (previously Shadow Audio) <a href="[wiki-url]sb4000-gssl/">SB4000</a>, which was in turn based on the classic SSL buss compressor design. The SB4001 adds a host of new features, including an external sidechain input, tube-style harmonic drive, wet/dry blend, and auto release. After a limited DIY run (September 2011), the SB4001 is now available only as an assembled unit. <a href="http://wiki.diyrecordingequipment.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/SB4001_PREORDER__4e800ca77b083.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-4124" title="sb4001" src="http://wiki.diyrecordingequipment.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/SB4001_PREORDER__4e800ca77b083-300x300.jpg" alt="sb4001 buss compressor" width="300" height="300" /></a> <div class="highlight">"Hey guys I've had a few days with mine now and I will say its awesome! The sound of the comp is probably the best I've heard of the VCA/SSL type compressors. And it is for sure the most flexibly of that kind I know of. I love the lowend on it and flexibility compared to a standard SSL buss. Grind is very cool! It adds more weight to a mix and color. So it really is like 2 different sounding compressors in one." -Dan Deurloo (via Gearslutz)</div> <strong>Features:</strong> <ul> <li>Uses custom QUAD VCAs</li> <li>Classic or auto-release, including stepped classic release and variable release control</li> <li>Sidechain filters:</li> <li>High-pass (60, 90, 120hz)</li> <li>Boost</li> <li>Slope</li> <li>Runs on +/-16vDC</li> <li>"Grind" mode imparts a tube-modeled harmonic distortion</li> <li>Six ratio settings</li> <li>10 attack settings</li> </ul> <strong>Price:</strong> <ul> <li>$1249 Assembled</li> </ul> <strong>More Info:</strong> <ul> <li>The SB4001 on <a href="http://www.gearslutz.com/board/product-alerts-older-than-2-months/635245-serpent-audio-sb4001-stereo-buss-compressor-500-series-2.html">Gearslutz</a></li> <li>Available at the <a href="http://www.serpentaudio.com/">Serpent Audio</a> online store</li> </ul>
