The Lisson Grove AR-1 is a vintage-style tube compressor based on the classic Altec compressor that was used intensively in the 1960’s. It features an XLR mono input/output and 1/4” trigger hold. The attack control lets you bypass the compression. However, it is not a hard bypass; the audio is still processed through the unit’s circuitry. Even when the signal is not compressing the audio, you will be able to hear the characteristics of the unit.

The O/P load control adjusts the output impedance of the unit (200 to 600 Ohms). The balance control provides an easy way to balance out the two sides of the gain-reduction valve, thus minimizing distortion and feed-through thumps.

Infinity position in between each of the 6 recovery settings results in an extremely long recovery time
Priming the unit before a take; having the artist play or sing a note before recording, then switching in the desired release time when ready
