In 1979 from Hollywood, California, the Quad Eight company released the ground-breaking CL22 compressor/limiter/expander. These are incredibly fast VCA-based feed-forward topology featuring the famous vintage DBX VCA. A pair of these classics pulled from a Quad Eight console, racked-up by Rob Squire at Proharmonic in Adelaide are about to call ToKwerX home. They've been proudly living at Coloursound Studios with Mat Robins until now and I am delighted to offer them a special place in the ToKwerX system alongside my Harrison 32C EQ's - also racked-up by Proharmonic. Found this ad' from Studio Sound magazine announcing their release in 1979. The pair coming to ToKwerX are the black-faced models, which I'll have to ascertain the year of manufacture with Rob Squire. These have been my all-time favourite device at the end of my chain for tracking vocals and have featured on albums by Jesse Valach and Blue Eyes Cry.
