1176 LN COMPRESSOR CLONE TUTORIAL

     Once you get into do-it-yourself audio equipment, there is no way out. The world of audio equipment just sucks you in and takes over your soul. This build documents the process of building 1176 Limiting amplifier LN Rev D Compressor clone. It takes a lot of time and patience to get it to work properly. Now, Mnats’ words are pondering into my head: DIY audio will not save you money or time if you think you will build a studio on the low budget.
On the other hand, this is a very time-consuming process and takes a lot of patience. But, what a fun experience this was! I have a working Classic 1176 compressor and also learned the signal flow of the unit inside out. I am ready to do some serious squishing!
