Spectra Sonics Complimiters
The 601 compressor/limiter module (right) was introduced in 1969. It was first implemented in the Spectra Sonics Model 610 Complimiter (below). It acts as a separate compressor and peak limiter, or it can perform both functions simultaneously. Today, the 601 is still the fastest, quietest, and most versatile analog compressor/limiter available. The 601 module is the heart and soul of each of our Complimiter models. Choose which Complimiter best suits your application:
The Model V610 Complimiter
The Model V610 is a major improvement on the 610 Complimiter, now 45 years after it's original release. The V610 has high resolution detented controls, as well as lower distortion, noise, and a +24dBu output. For tracking, mix buss, and mastering applications.
The Model 610 Complimiter
The Model 610 is the original Complimiter introduced in 1969. It utilizes the 601 compressor/limiter module, with a 101 Preamplifier for make-up gain. Two 610 Complimiters can be interconnected for stereo use via the 610 SI Accessory.
"They've been on every record I've engineered since, (1993), and most that I've mixed."
The 611 Series Complimiters
Designed for hi-Z instrument use, the 611 Series Complimiters are compact and simplified. Still utilizing the 601 compressor/limiter module, the 611 has no make-up gain stage. This allows any external amplifier to be used for make-up gain. The unbalanced design of the 611-G makes it the ultimate studio-grade compressor for electric guitar, bass, violin etc. The 611-B offers a balanced input, and allows direct microphone termination.
The M-610 PRO
Introducing the M-610 PRO Complimiter. The dual-channel M-610 features an all new compact design. Improved headroom (+24dBu) and noise specifications are achieved by the implementation of a Model 110A output gain stage. We've also added phantom power, allowing the M-610 to be used as an impressive microphone preamp.
