Analogue Effects

Aphex Aural Exciter Type B

Aphex Systems Limited introduced the Aphex Aural Exciter Type B in 1983 as a low-cost version (US$495) of the original Exciter which was offered on a $30 per minute hire basis.

dbx 160X Compressor

The dbx 160X replaced the now legendary dbx 160(VU) and added the over easy compression of the dbx 165, and changed the form factor from the half rack size with wood side panels, to a single rack chassis.

dbx 165A Compressor/Limiter

The dbx 165A is a professional single channel compressor/limiter that features the new dbx Over Easy compression curve. The dbx Over Easy compression curve permits extremely smooth, almost inaudible compression due to the gradual change of compression ratio around the threshold, instead of the customary sharp threshold.

Furman Sound RV-1 Reverberation System with Limiter

The Furman Sound RV-1 was released around 1982 and is a mono analogue spring reverb system with a limiter built in, an odd combination of effects. The Furman Sound RV-1 is a mono device with TRS or XLR inputs on offer. A stereo model was released some time later.

Marshall AR-300 Tape Eliminator

The Marshall AR-300 Tape Eliminator was designed for one purpose only; to duplicate the sound of true analogue tape echo. The Marshall AR-300 Tape Eliminator can eliminate the need for a dedicated tape machine, along with overcoming many of the limitations associated with tape and tape transports.

Roland SDD-320 Dimension D Chorus

Roland’s Chorus effect that featured heavily on their JC Series guitar amplifiers was a unique and desirable sound back in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The demand for this new chorus effect was so great, Roland developed the Roland SDD-320 Dimension D to satisfy that market demand, and it is quite possibly the greatest chorus effect processor ever made.

AMS DM2-20 Tape Phase Simulator

The AMS DM2-20 tape phase simulator is the result of extensive research into the requirements and needs of the recording industry, for accurate simulation of tape phasing. Unlike other units of this kind, which solely mix the delayed signal with the original, the DM2-20 uses two independent delay lines to allow true ‘over the top‘ tape phase simulation.

dbx 165 Compressor/Limiter

The dbx 165 is a professional single channel compressor/limiter that features the new dbx Over Easy compression curve. The dbx Over Easy compression curve permits extremely smooth, almost inaudible compression due to the gradual change of compression ratio around the threshold, instead of the customary sharp threshold.

360 Systems Model 2800 Programmable Equalizer

The 360 Systems Model 2800 Programmable Equalizer was a fairly unique product at the time of it’s release in 1980, with it’s tactile controls and programmability. Using a Z-80 microprocessor and CMOS memory storage, the 360 Systems Model 2800 Programmable Equalizer was able to store up to 28 user created EQ curves.

DBX 163 Compressor/Limiter

The dbx 163 and dbx 164 compressor/ limiters feature dbx’s Over Easy compression. Over Easy refers to a “soft-knee” compression characteristic that provides virtually inaudible gain control at ratios up to infinite compression.
