A hand-built, point-to-point-wired, all-tube, soft-knee mastering compressor, the Phoenix Mastering Plus from Thermionic Culture updates the previous Phoenix with faster release, higher stability and the addition of a side chain filter. In stereo-link mode, the Phoenix adds natural-sounding, transparent compression to your mixes. Use it in dual-mono mode and and get that clarity on individual tracks, or push the unit to add some punch; push it even harder for compression effects and great-sounding tube distortion. Designed to deliver minimal phase-shift and flat frequency response over the entire audio range and beyond, this compressor will breath life back into your masters.
The commitment of Thermionic Culture’s founder, Vic Keary, to high-quality tube audio gear dates back to the first studio he built in the 1950’s, and his company has taken the best of what tubes have to offer, updating the circuits for the low-noise and distortion levels required for modern recording. Solid-state components are confined to power supplies so that the audio path is pure tube musicality.
