Manufacturer's Description from IGS

The S-Type 500 is best known for its ability to replicate the buss compressor of the legendary British large format console. The heart of the compressor is the THAT integrated circuit instead of the now unavailable DBX. The analog path is balanced with ultra-fast op-amps. This is the source of the completely transparent sound. A minimal level of noise allows the device to be used in any musical setting. We have added Sidechain HPF, which allows the user to select the lowest frequencies to pass the unit uncompressed, enabling your mixes to breathe and avoid pumping.

Sidechain functionality.

IGS S-TYPE 500 is a stereo compressor, featuring a large GR meter and four fast, modern op-amps on inputs and outputs, providing the perfect balance of this stereo circuit. Two channels of the unit are being summed together and used to control both VCA stages. This allows you to use the S-TYPE 500 as an external side-chain compressor, where the signal goes through EXSC input. Last but not least, the MIX knob allows for parallel compression, so you can crush the living hell out of your tracks, and blend them with the dry signal for that NY drum sound. Overall, the S-Type is a very creative device.

RMS detection, high headroom input circuits and output drivers.

Your stereo buss deserves better

IGS S-Type gives you the sound of compression from your favorite records, it's the magic glue for your mixes. It’s really hard to make it sound bad - from a gentle hug to an aggressive crush and anywhere in between.

Your new go-to squeeze box.
