Golden Age Project Comp-2A overview

  • 1Description

The Comp-2A 1-Channel Vintage Style Compressor from Golden Age Project is a one-channel vintage style compressor/leveler that uses vacuum tubes in the signal and side-chain path. The input and output are transformer balanced using two different transformers, each one optimized. The Comp-2A compressor can be used in various environments by musicians and engineers, in recording, broadcast, or live stage and theater applications.

The circuit used in the COMP-2A is based on a classic design that was originally produced in the early 1960s, and it was initially intended for broadcast applications. It uses an electro-luminescent panel and a photoelectric cell to control gain. This gives it a unique, program-dependent compression characteristic. In addition, the all tube signal path and the transformers add a wonderful and musical character to the sound.

Vintage style, all tube signal path. The tubes are fitted with grounded shields
Golden Age Project's version of the classic optical unit using a long life electroluminescent panel and two carefully matched Silonex NSL5910 photoresistors for T4B-style electro-optical gain control, with program-dependent attack and release times
Simple to operate with only two main controls—Gain and Peak Reduction 
HF control can make the side-chain circuit more sensitive to mid- and high-frequency content
Linear low-noise regulated filament and high-voltage power supply
A display meter to show gain reduction or output level at two different reference levels
Hardwire bypass switch for easy comparisons
XLR and TRS input and output jacks for flexible connections
Link jack and switch for connecting to another unit for stereo operation
All external controls are located on the front panel
Compact 2 RU half-rack format. Two units can be mounted with a 19-inch rack kit—the UNITE BIG
A solid build quality that will last many years of normal use
