Manufacturer's Description from Tube-Tech


The TUBE-TECH CL 2A Dual Compressor features two independent optical compressors. The optical gain reduction element is placed after the input transformer and then followed by an all tube-based output amplifier with a +10 dB gain. A switch with three positions (Link 1, Off, Link 2) is used whenever you want to use the two separate compressors in stereo mode or link several compressors together. The two link busses are identical.

Both Input and Output are balanced and have fully floating transformers with a static screen. The power supply and the sidechain circuit is based on a solid state circuit. With the exception of the anode voltage for the output stage all DC voltages are stabilized.

About Manufacturer

STATEMENT It is our mission to ensure the engineer has confidence in his working tools and feels comfortable working with them. To achieve this, it is our job to bring out the very best in the tubes, as well as continuously strive to offer the professional audio engineer outboard equipment of sublime quality ? both in terms of sound and reliability. Lydkraft ApS was founded in 1977 by partners John G. Petersen, Niels Wors?e and Karsten Bruun. Originally the core business of the company was PA, which was a successful venture until 1980, when the partnership was cancelled ? and Mr. Petersen decided to take Lydkraft on his own shoulders. The company was relocated to the interimistic surroundings of Mr. Petersens garage.... Mr. Petersen now redefined the business focus of Lydkraft: He terminated the PA business entirely and focused his efforts towards design, development and manufacturing. During this period small production runs of direct boxes, mixing desks and speaker systems were manufactured as well. In the early 80?s, the demand for vintage tube gear was increasing at a rapid pace. But at the same time tube equipment became more and more scarce by the day. The idea of taking on development & manufacturing of recording equipment with tubes came about in 1984. The first tube-based unit bearing the name TUBE-TECH was developed as an almost direct copy of the Pultec EQP 1A. The tubes of TUBE-TECH Program Equalizer PE 1A glowed for the first time in 1985 and the very first shipment containing 30 units stood ready in June 1985. Next in line was the TUBE-TECH PE 1B and TUBE-TECH Midrange Equalizer ME 1A, soon followed by the TUBE-TECH Compressor Limiter CL 1A and the TUBE-TECH Microphone Preamp MP 1A in 1987.
