Exclamation Lindell Audio 17X Compressor




The Seventeen X is a one channel transformer coupled compressor/limiter.
It's a FET (field effect transistor) design that incorporate some new and exclusive features such as
"High Pass Sidechain Filter", "Mix Knob" mix between dry and wet signal (parallel compression),
"Signal High Pass and Low Pass Filters" smooth 6db/oct filters that colors the sound nicely.

The 17X uses the absolute best parts available: Alps pots, Carnhill Transformers,
Wima Caps, Sifam Vintage VU, Original Fender Super Switches, Gold plated XLR's, etc.

The 17X is our take on the classic "1176 Sound". It can be smooth or it can be a rock'n'roll monster
when using ratio 100:1 (all in). Please have listen to the sound examples below.


* FET Style Compressor
* Variable Mix Control For Precise Parallel Compression
* 5 Step Switched Attack Times 20ms to 800ms
* 5 Step Switched Release Times 50ms to 0,8sec
* 5 Step Switched High Pass Sidechain Filter. Off, 100Hz, 200Hz, 300Hz, 600Hz
* 5 Step Swithced Ratio 4:1, 8:1, 12:1, 20:1, 100:1
* Signal High Pass Filter 6db/Oct @ 80Hz
* Signal Low Pass Filter 6db/Oct @ 12kHz
* True Hardware Bypass
* Carnhill I/O Transformers
* Switchable Vintage Sifam Meter To Show Input-Gain Reduction-Output
* Aluminium Knobs
* Retail Price €2150 Euro ex. VAT
* To Be Released in Februari 2011








Merry Christmas,
Lindell

Having choices between transformers sounds awesome! Too bad it's not on the production units. I'll bet the proto will stay at Bohus?! Good work Tobias! Looks are awesome.

Congrats! Can I come to your studio and bug you for a demo sometime? heh

Love how the mix knob, which used to be an ITB luxury, is getting more and more common in the hardware world.

Any time Stiffler! heh

I decided not to have switchable output transformers (sowter-carnhill) because the sound difference was almost 0. The cost of the extra transformer is just to high....

(ps. I dont see the 17X on your blog yet?=)

Hi,
There's no stereo link at this time. You have to set two units equal heh

I like the distressed look around the meter. I hope that makes it to production, kind of like Fender's Relic series.

Beautiful looking thing of.....beauty.
Will listen to the examples asap- this is just like an ITB design made available OTB with better sound. ITB 2.0 so to speak.
Could you specify this further:
Quote:
* 5 Step Switched Attack Times 20ms to 800ms
* 5 Step Switched Release Times 50ms to 0,8sec
Thank you very much and all the best with this thing of...did I already call it beautiful?

Thanks!

The attack and release are on switches that ranges from fast to slow. Makes it easier to recall and gives a really nice feel to use it...

Just took it out (of the box) for a test drive. It is very nice and versitile. I don't have any similar hardware compressors to compare it to, but it sounds better that the Waves CLA-76 TDM at least...

I have the prototype with black lettering. No good choice for old men... I think it is an abolute necessity to go white. :-)

The two transformers do sound ever so slightly different, but I agree that if it makes the unit a lot more expensive, then it makes no sense. One has a leaner, clearer sound and the other one (button in) is a bit fatter, warmer and ever so slightly less in your face. Closer to the Waves CLA...
