Good afternoon, I’m interested in the 538 compressor, but can’t find many information on it (I’ve already seen the, useful, YouTube video). I’m looking for a bus compressor (not for master bus, I mean), to be used mainly on guitar’s (heavy distorted) bus and on drum bus for adding a bit of glueing and punch (and also a bit of stereo enenchment). A secondary use could be a more aggressive use on mono kick and snare tracks. Now, what I would like to know is if it can work in a relatively clean, “tight” and subtle way or if is more indicated for extremely coloured compression. Thank a lot, Stefano
Right now I’m out of stock of the 538.
I’m working very hard on the introduction of the new Alice 828 Mk3 so it’s unlikely that I will have any new stock of the 538 for a couple of months…… But it would certainly do the job that you talk about!
To those interested in the TFPRO538, there is now a new version with a modified connector arrangement so that it works OK in a standard MCI or Neve 500 series frame. See the product page for news of the version V5!
