Created as their take on the classic 1176 compressor and limiter, the 17X Single-Channel FET Compressor/Limiter from Lindell Audio features a transformer-coupled designed with Carnhill input and output transformers. While based on the 1176, it has a variety of features not found on that original design, including a mix knob for instant parallel compression, a sidechain filter, and signal high- and low-pass filters. Its ratio, attack, and release time controls are all stepped for easy recall.
