The Volfram Limiter is a dual mono version of the legendary 1176 archetype.
The core of versatility of sound of the 1176 lies in the balance between the Input, Output, and Release knobs.
The 1176 is a very well known and appreciated compressor in professional recording studios all over the world. Whoever heard how this compressor works with vocals will never be able to manage without one. Additionally the Volfram works great with drums, synths and any other sources.
Legendary FET design, two linkable channels, Wet/Dry mix knob for parallel compression.
Wet & Warm.
It is a 45dB transistor amplifier equipped with a remarkable limiter. Compression is achieved with the FET transistors. At extreme settings the Volfram adds some pleasant distortion to the output. All manipulators are 12-pole (6-pole for ratio, HPF) switches. It is a pure A class circuit.
It’s all you need to get a rich and loud sound.
