New 2 buss compressor

This is the company that makes a bunch of high end analog synths. Evidently, I found by searching around on their website that they are coming out with a line of pro audio gear, of which this is the first product.

Anyone heard of or better yet, heard this unit?

3 things i don't like already:

1) It is called the C2.

There is C2 compressor out there already(Alan Smart) and it sounds fine.

2) I like color in my compressors.

That is what attracted me to the 1176 in the first place. Its quirkiness and character. Who cares about the meters(also when the compression is not engaged it shows no signal?).

3)Read #2

Who knows maybe it will be a diamond in the rough, or something else that takes up blank spaces in the racks(should I say rack filler?).

Any word on price?

I have to laugh when manufacturers lay claim to having a COMPRESSOR that you can spank and will leave little artifact. Call it something else.
After all isn't about dynamic control????

I agree the C2 (Al Smart) is a good 2 buss compressor. Not a great mastering tool in my opinion. I think you're better off using it at the mix stage. The mentality for using it in mastering I gather is to try and impart some of the SSLs "hit sound". You want SSL sound mix through it.

The new SSL K series we just got has a very special compressor. The most transparent I've heard on a console. What I would describe in technical terms as.....THE ****!!!!!
