Show More
The Black Lion Audio Seventeen is a single-channel, solid-state FET compressor co-designed with Tobias Lindell to provide a different interpretation of 1176-style compression for audio engineers, musicians, and producers in mobile-recording rigs and home, project, and commercial studios. It offers a blend of precision and pronounced low frequencies due to an IC-based input stage and a custom output transformer. Use it on mono sources such as a vocal or link it with a second Seventeen compressor for dynamic control of stereo signals such as drum overheads.

Standard controls including input and output levels, ratio, attack, and release are readily available. Additionally, a switchable sidechain high-pass filter, independently selectable high- and low-pass filters, and a dry/wet mix knob deliver versatile control and tonal shaping. Input and output connectivity is offered via balanced XLR 3-pin jacks.

The Seventeen was designed, engineered, assembled, and tested in the USA.
