Black Lion Audio

The AGB Compressor from Black Lion Audio is a two-channel diode compressor and limiter designed to pay homage to the Neve 33609 with its versatility and low-noise characteristics. It is housed in a high quality, all metal chassis which fits in a 2U rack mount space. The AGB can provide warm and subtle compression on vocals, but also can be dialed in for fast attacks on your drum bus or snare. It features a fully-balanced, opamp-based circuit with rotary potentiometers and transformers on the input and output stages. Whatever you use it on, the AGB Compressor will provide you with invisible compression or limiting without raising the noise floor.

Two-Channel Diode Compressor and Limiter
The AGB Compressor features two-channels of quick, responsive, and low-noise compression and limiting.

Homage to the Neve 33609
The AGB is designed to deliver the same versatile and warm results that made the Neve 33609 famous, but with updated features such as more control and a balanced signal path.

Versatile Functionality with Low Noise Floor
The AGB is designed to provide you with both smooth and easy compression for amazing vocals, but also insanely fast for cracking snares and drums. No matter what the AGB is being used for, the noise floor always remains extremely low.

Input/Interstage/Output Transformers
Like the Neve 33609, the AGB features input, interstage, and output transformers to deliver the same low-noise compression, even when it's being pushed.

2U Rack Space and High Quality Chassism
The AGB fits in a 2U rack space and is constructed of the highest quality materials to ensure it will provide you with years of quality results. No corners have been cut in the AGB's design including an all metal chassis and rotary potentiometers.
