Timeless, classic compression.

The Black 76 Limiting Amplifier is modeled after what is probably the most used, most known and most universally recognized compressor/limiter in the audio industry. There are probably no professionally recorded tracks where this unit wasn't used. It's a true legend and a piece of music production history.

The engineers that made this FET based compressor reached a level of cleverness and magic that only true visionary geniuses can achieve. While there are many revisions of this hardware, IK Multimedia modeled the LN version, revision E, because it's the one that has the most sonically recognized and sought after character thanks to its input transformer and class A output stage.

All of its features have been closely modeled, from its lightning fast attack, a peculiarity of this model, to the "all buttons in" mode: this is a trick that engineer use to create some pretty intense and wild effects, since when all ratio buttons are pressed together distortion drastically increases due to continuous and radical time constants shifts; this is a good way to hit room tracks hard or smack parallel busses for distinctive sonic signatures.

It's also a "go to" unit for standard compression duties, thanks to the quality of the sound it imparts to a track, even when not compressing, and to the simplicity of its controls: just set the input and output level to get in the ballpark of how much gain reduction is needed, then once set the Ratio the compression is quickly fine tuned with the time constants controls.

It is difficult to find a track or source where this compressor won't sound good; it is practically able to give authority and personality even to the most sterile track; bass is one of the most common uses for this plug-in but its very fast attack makes it very handy on percussive sources, like snare drum; vocals will benefit from its solid compression, standing out in the mix with presence and boldness. It's not out of the ordinary to see a pair of these compressors stereo-linked across the main bus of a mixer, so the fact that the T-RackS model is either mono or stereo makes it easy to replicate this technique.

  • Modeled after a legendary studio compressor
  • LN version, revision E used for accurate sounding results
  • Includes lightning fast attack, and "all buttons in" mode
  • "go to" unit in pro studios for standard compression duties
  • Commonly used on bass, but excels on just about any source

      Comments about IK Multimedia Black 76 Limiting Amplifier Software Download:

      When I use Pro Tools, I have access to the Bomb Factory BF76, but I also separately bought Waves' CLA-76, and I was never too impressed with either one as they never really seemed to do anything. As a result, I never used them. Then I bought THIS, and now I use it all the time! It imparts a nice tone on everything it touches, and is very responsive to whatever it is applied to. I already had IK's basic TRacks package, which includes their Fairchild 670 clone (which I pretty much use on all my vocal tracks) -- it's really awesome.

      As the other reviewer mentioned, IK's method of installation is to install the TRacks Custom Shop, which installs demos of ALL their TRacks products, which is a bit of a drag -- it really clutters up your plugin menus, and there's no way (to my knowledge) to remove the ones you don't want. However, unlike what the other reviewer said, I never had it slow down my system other than during the initial plug-in scan, but after that, it wasn't a problem. If not for the Custom Shop installation, I would have given it 5 stars!

      Comments about IK Multimedia Black 76 Limiting Amplifier Software Download:

      When I installed it, IK Multimedia, for reasons I cannot understand nor could they explain, installed 52 (yes FIFTY-TWO) other programs onto my system. Mostly were dummy programs that would only work if I bought them. They completely clogged up my drop-down menus and slowed me down. I tried to uninstall them individually, but they wouldn't go away, so I finally just ate the money I paid for it and uninstalled all IK Multimedia programs. I will never buy from them again.
