Berlin, Germany � After a lot of planning, programming, soldering, and listening, the vision of Tegeler Audio Manufaktur founder Michael Krusch has become a reality: The Schwerkraftmaschine is here. Built on an analog tube signal path and remote-controllable by plug-in, this extraordinary compressor allows both classic and completely new compression combinations.
�At Tegeler Audio Manufaktur, we design our products first and foremost with sound and musicality in mind,� says Michael Krusch. �The Schwerkraftmaschine makes the difference between �well mixed� and �sounds perfect�.�
For the Schwerkraftmaschine, the German manufacturer went with the analog tube signal path of the proven Vari Tube Compressor, but replaced the side-chain with a chip that calculates the compression and enables it to emulate nearly any type of compressor on the market. The Schwerkraftmaschine can be remotely controlled via a plug-in (AU, VST, AAX) allowing all settings to be saved in the DAW. The hardware unit is equipped with servomotors so that the controls match the plug-in settings at all times. Users can recall their favorite settings with presets and can even automate the analog parameters, allowing for different settings within various parts of a track.
A variable side-chain-filter that works both as lowcut and as a tilt-EQ, as well as a mixer that blends compressed and uncompressed signals makes the Schwerkraftmaschine even more flexible.
