The 276 features the classic operation and sound characteristics of the compressors from the hit-making studios of the ‘60s and ‘70s, the 276 makes it easy to dial in great sound on any source. Input and output gains and selectable ratios of 4:1, 8:1, 12:1 and 20:1 allow users to tame peaks and fit each audio signal exactly where they want it in the mix, with a face-mounted gain reduction meter letting users know how hard the unit is working. For grittier applications, the 276 also features the beloved “all buttons in” mode, which unlocks a unique, hidden compressor behavior accessed by depressing multiple ratio buttons.
Built by the same expert designers who handcraft BAE Audio's hand-wired studio equipment, the UK Sound 276 compressor emulates intuitive features of the 1176, as well as the renowned brightness, presence and energy the compressor imparts on the sound at an affordable price point. This effectively removes a significant economic barrier-to-entry for engineers, mixers, and musicians looking to upgrade their studio arsenal with classic compression quality.
