Unprecedented control and the sweetest compression you've ever heard.
With the Glory Comp, Groove Tubes spares no expense in creating what they call "the very best tube compressor ever made." In addition to its incredible sonic character, the Glory Comp audio compressor offers features that have never been found on compression devices at any price.
The Groove Tubes Glory Comp is a true all-tube compressor, employing 7 high-quality, hand-selected vacuum tubes to accomplish its dynamics processing. Its output tubes -- a pair of 6005s -- offer tremendous output power driving a custom wound and robust output transformer (the Glory Comp can actually drive a speaker all on its own!). Fully differential and floating design includes dual isolated output taps on its proprietary output transformer so it can interface with both -10dBV and +4dBu signal levels without sacrificing signal quality or degrading noise specs.
Compression ratios from 1:1 to 10:1 are available, as are standard attack, release, and compression threshold controls. In addition to release times from 10ms to 2 seconds, users can choose between logarithmic and linear release modes. Several high-quality ceramic multi-decked switches (instead of less expensive potentiometers) allow for easily repeatable settings. The custom-built, backlit VU meter has 7 different display modes.
Built-in sidechain EQ with adjustable low and high frequency filters, using an internal or external side-chaining source selector. Unique Glory knob affects 2nd-order harmonics, perfect for bringing out a vocal or a solo instrument in a mix. The Glory knob is adjustable between Earth (no effect) and Heaven (full effect).
A no-compromise, transparent, rich all tube compressor with virtually NO tradeoff in frequency response loss, even in the most compressed settings (unlike many of today's high end compressors).

This compressor is awesome! Probably the smoothest, most transparent (if you wish) piece of gear ever built. I've used this for front-end vocal recording and it is truly a stellar tool for high-end studio work. And during mixdown it absolutely excels on kick drum.Now the caveat. This unit was reverse-engineered around tubes NOT intended for audio use, and hand selected on the basis of noise output, or lack thereof. Repairing this piece has turned out to be an impossibility. Fender's acquisition of Groove Tubes has left buyers like me hanging in the wind, as they offer no support or assistance in finding repair options (Way to go!) as this piece is so esoteric no one able to repair it once it goes down. And remember-there are 7 tubes inside! I'm now the proud owner of a doorstop.
