UK Sound 176 - Single Channel FET Compressor

The UK Sound 176 takes the classic sound of the 1776 compressor and recreates it at an affordable price!

The UK Sound 176 is a modern high-quality replica of the good ol’ 1176 compressor built at an affordable price. The controls are very simple – Input, Ratio, Attack, Release, and Output. Just like on the original 1176, the input control doubles as a threshold control, which means you can adjust the output gain to ideally match your DAW, tape machine, or whatever you are recording with.

Supported ratios vary between 4:1 and 20:1. Furthermore, the ! switch lets you engage the well-known “all buttons in” mode and extract the most analogue mojo out of the 1176-style compressor. UK Sound also added a SC filter to let low frequencies pass through without engaging the compressor – this is said to result in a more transparent sound. Good stuff, all in all!

UK Sound 176 features:

  • Modern replica of the classic 1176 compressor
  • Compression ratios: 4:1, 8:1, 12:1, 20:1
  • SC filter that will allow the lower frequencies to pass through without engaging the compressor
  • Made in California by the same audiophiles that design BAE Audio
