S-Type 500 Compressor
The S-Type is a typical VCA compressor well known as the core of the legendary British sound. The heart of the compressor is the THAT chip instead of the now unavailable DBX. The analogue path is balanced with ultra-fast op-amps. This is the source of completely transparent sound. A minimal level of noise allows the device to be used in recording classical music, including long range recording. The main new feature of the S-Type is the Sidechain HPF regulation. This allows the user to select the lowest frequencies which will not be compressed and more precisely control the bass and dynamics of the mix. 
The S-TYPE 500 compressor is equipped with two sidechain circuit settings. The first one called 
'London' (selectable with the LONDON – BY – NEW YORK switch) is a stereo mode. Two channels of the unit are being summed up and used to control both VCA stages. 
In 'New York' mode only the left channel is being used to control both VCA stages. That allows you to use the S-TYPE 500 as a mono side-chain compressor where the signal at the left input controls the amount of the compression applied to the right channel. Applications: Great summing and mastering compressor, Beat compressor for external drum machines, Drum compressor for live drums, Can be used to compress single stereo instruments (pads, leads), The S-Type is a precision dynamic range controller intended for use in the most demanding professional audio applications. RMS detection, high headroom input circuits and output drivers, give the S-Type its own sonic excellence.
Key features:

- All stepped manipulators (exc. Mix) 
- Sidechain HPF 
- 20 points GR LED bar
