Louder Than Liftoff
Implode FET Compressor Colour
- Fully Assembled
Many of the most distinctive sounds in recording history have originated from engineers breaking the rules and "abusing" their equipment. By far the most famous "abuse" visited upon a piece of gear is the 1176 FET compressor's "All Buttons In" mode, in which all of the ratio settings are engaged at the same time. The resulting squish is the thing of legends and has been emulated countless times.
Louder Than Liftoff's "Implode" Colour is not an emulation at all, but an exact replica of the 1176 Rev F amplifier and gain-reduction circuitry pre-set to "All Buttons In" mode.
- Exact recreations of the Revision F amplifier and gain-reduction stages
- Customizable via solderless jumpers and trim pots:
- 4:1 or "All Buttons In" ratio modes
- Attack, Release, and Output
- Detector circuit bypass
- Arrives set to the beloved "Dr. Pepper" attack and release settings
- Compatible with the Colour 500 Palette
Implode is not offered as a DIY kit. Because of the complexity of their design, all of Louder Than Liftoff's Colours are sold fully assembled and tested.
