Analogue Compression

GILES Audio - All Aussie Goodness

For several decades Ross Giles has been one of the most prominent electronic engineers, audio gear designer and service personnel in AU. He continues to develop gorgeous high end equipment for the more discerning audio-philes amongst us. This morning I took a delightful drive into the eastern hills to take delivery of his prototype 1722 valve compressor, based on the vintage Altec device. This stereo analogue love will eventually go into a new mastering suite I am developing here at RMIT Uni, but before that it needs to be tested at an already established mastering facility ... oh, I happen to have one of those :)
