ANALOG SOUND, DIGITAL CONTROL

True ANALOG sound with extremely convenient control!

100% analog FET compressor

ng76 is a 100% analog processing unit with 24dBu of headroom

Regardless of its full digital control, the analog signal path provides lightning speed compression sound we all know from countless records.

True stereo operation

2 x ng76 mono compressors can be linked via dedicated software

It allows to link compression detectors (with special cables included with stereo matched pairs) for true stereo compression,

Or dual mono compression with all parameters linked.

Just change the setting on one unit, and it will be reflected on its matched twin!

MIX knob for parallel compression

We all know FET style compression to be lightning fast, punchy and aggressive.

Mix knob for parallel compression allows us to dial in the amount of this sonic flavor we want!

Mix knob also allows saturation mode to be mixed in.

THD – total harmonic distortion

Total harmonic distortion button which allows you to dial in additional sonic content in Low or High settings.

This design is fully based on the FET circuit and allows us to choose how saturated Your compression becomes.

Carnhill transformers

Transformers in audio compressors aren’t just for electrical isolation – they can add a warm, sonic saturation we all love in our recordings. Carnhill transformers are part of the ng76 adding all that vintage flavor!

Saturation mode

Special mode where static compression is triggered to produce sonics based on FET circuit, and One knob which sets INPUT and OUTPUT in an opposite way. It allows the use of the unit as a saturation box / clipper. The harder the drive will hit the compression and saturation circuit, the more sonic content we will get!

Selectable Input stage

Modern and Vintage modes to support two 1176 revisions (F & G).

Vintage – transformer balanced input,
Modern – Electronically balanced input.

Side Chain EQ sections

Sophisticated side chain circuit EQ with two independent sections:

  • HPF 60 hz / 90 Hz / 150 Hz – to maintain low end information while compressing,
  • High Shelf of 2kHz / 5kHz, 10kHz – to tame high frequencies by emphasizing high/hid mids content.

Hardware A/B buttons to compare two independent settings

Even using ng76 as a pure analog signal processor you can easily switch between two parallel settings with the magic of a simple button.

USB or Ethernet Connectivity

ng76 supports direct USB connection, or you can also managed it in your local network, just plug in ethernet cable to Your router!

Gain reduction, input and output metering!

  • ng76 is armed with classic Vintage Gain Reduction meter we all recognize and know,
  • To provide a high level of usability, it also visualizes very precise input and output levels at the same time!

Analog Automation

I’m sure all of us wanted to use different device settings based on the song section. Now it is possible! Just draw automation lines in your DAW and your analog device will follow!

And remember, you can use five touch sensitive encoders to record automation TO your DAW!

TOTAL RECALL AND PLUGIN CONTROL

Along with classic analog compressor You receive most demanded feature in audio industry – TOTAL RECALL.

Full plugin control through VST2/VST3/AU/AAX/AAX DSP – makes ng76 compatible with most, if not all major DAWs.

Total integration with your beloved DAW will change your workflow forever!
