Classic and contemporary compression
The Schwerkraftmaschine from Tegeler Audio Manufaktur promises both classic and completely new compression combinations. The stereo compressor has been created using the analogue tube signal path of the Vari Tube Compressor, but the side-chain has been replaced with a chip that calculates the compression and reportedly enables it to emulate nearly any type of compressor on the market.
The Schwerkraftmaschine can be remotely controlled via a plugin (AU, VST, AAX) allowing all settings to be saved in the DAW. The hardware unit is equipped with servomotors so that the controls match the plugin settings at all times. Users can recall settings with presets and automate the analogue parameters, allowing for different settings within various parts of a track.
A variable side-chain-filter that works both as lowcut and as a tilt-EQ, as well as a mixer that blends compressed and uncompressed signals complete the Schwerkraftmaschine.
