Thermionic Culture have added a third Phoenix stereo valve compressor to the range. This SC, or side chain version is virtually identical to the standard model, but has in addition the same side chain filter section from the Phoenix Mastering Compressor (MC). This side chain filter provides 75Hz & 150Hz, but more permutations are possible when the MC is used in stereo mode with the link switch engaged. So, the SC model has the same higher gain structure as the standard model, which means it can slam more than the Mastering model, which makes it more useful for individual tracking or mixing functions, but added the extra versatility of having one of the best two bus compressors available for your stereo bus due to the chain filters.
All valve design for greater presence and naturality. Completely free from solid state additives. Transparent compression. Punchy when pushed. Drive it hard for compression effects and distortion. Absolutely flat frequency response over entire audio range and beyond. Minimal phase shift giving a crisp and warm sound.
