AudioPervertElectronics - APE STUDIO COMPRESSOR
Built around two minimoog vca's, the APE Compressor was designed
to be extreme. After testing a number of optical circuits, which
were nice and smooth, I decided that I wanted something a little
more responsive. Since I had built some Moog vcf's already, I decided
to try using a Moog vca in a compressor. After about nine months
of tweaking, the stereo Moog compressor was born.
Two independent and linkable channels of Moog vca combined with
an aggressive sidechain that varies from smooth and creamy to outright
distortion of the signal. This compressor stands up to all the 'classic'
units as well as making most of today's modern compressors sound
a little boring. All APE music studio electronics are built as 'one
offs' and so can be custom made to specific requirements.
I am no longer making this compressor.
