Brighton Opto Tube Compressor

85.00

Brighton Opto Tube Compressor is a custom-built, versatile compressor with strong character. It can be slow and smooth like a classic RMS opto with normal settings, or push it to extremes and it is very capable of some very snappy ‘pumping’.

It is based both on a classic Vactrol VTL5 optical photocell detector and a custom-built one, prototyped on a breadboard with a new-concept, custom-circuit tube preamp.

What is it best used for?

With its modern tube compressor concept, Brighton OTC is well suited to a wide range of applications, especially for vocals (even with a high amount of gain reduction), lead lines, bass and drums – short attack and recovery are very interesting. Also, using it in buss or master buss with moderate settings can be pleasantly surprising.

Fast attack and recovery

The attack and recovery times are, for this machine, quite fast compared to other similar compressors thanks to the use of a very fast type of LED light source.

Internal Sidechain

Brighton Opto Tube Comp is already capable to retain a good amount of low-end even at a high level of reduction and 100% wet signal, but if this is not enough, it also features an internal sidechain to allow the user to set the low response at the preferred level.
