Looptrotter Monster - Compressor 2

  • FET compressor/limiter, tube saturation, and mixer of dry and wet signal
  • Compress, warm up, and punch up your sound
  • Process subgroups, stems, or single tracks during tracking or mixing
  • 6N2P NOS military grade electron tubes
  • Grayhill switches
  • Burr Brown Sound + integrated circuit components
  • Intuitive, soft deesser (compressor mode) for warm, deep yet silky smooth sound
  • Thick, heavy duty, coated aluminum front panel

Monster Compressor 2 has been redesigned from the ground up to improve durability and sound quality. It is a device with a “right in your face character”. It was redesigned to complement the “soulless”, “super clean” digital technology and by adding color and life. The compression module evens the signal in a very pleasant and musical way, before the tube saturation. The unique combination of compression and tube saturation makes the sound seem distinctly closer, every detail stands out and gives the energy to the processed sound. It makes the sound more tactile and ear friendly.

Monster Compressor 2 is built with the use of the best audiophile components of modern, analog technology. Within the highest quality, minimalistic signal path you will find integrated circuits, discreet circuits and electron tubes. The symmetrization and de-symmetrization circuits provide the neutrality of the sound, and those are based on integrated circuits dedicated to sound processing. The output of Monster Compressor is secured with capacitors also designed for sound.

FET transistor is responsible for sound reduction and it’s optimized for adding low frequency harmonics. In its non-linear characteristics it reminds the electron tubes, so even with the deep compression the sound is close and detailed.

The amplification of the sound after the FET transistor is handled by the high quality operational amplifier build of discreet elements. The compressor’s signal path is rid of capacitors.

In the saturation circuit there are military grade electron tubes with a prolonged longevity (NOS). The unique feature of Monster Compressor is the option of boosting the even harmonics added by the tubes (2nd BOOST), especially handy during extreme processing of tracks and subgroups.

The MIX option is based on integrated circuits dedicated to sound processing. This makes it sound neutral, but widens the application of Monster Compressor.

All parameters except the tube saturation are being controlled by switches made by Grayhill Electronics.
