    And now in September 2014, times have moved on again. I have stopped making equipment except for just one or two P38EX compressors…. that was the one that has stood the test of time.

    It’s true that every successful piece of equipment that I ever designed was conceived as something that I needed myself. The P38EX is a direct descendant of the original JoeMeek SC2, and I suppose it says something that the mastering rack I have today contains both a P38EX and an SC2!

    I occasionally tinker with plug-ins in my Protools trying to make them sound the same as the SC2 and sometimes they get close, but the great thing about the old green box is that you leave it plugged in and it always sounds good.
