Now that two versions of the Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor are available, which one is the better of the two? This is the question that needs to be answered. So in order to do so we have decided to conduct our test. In this test, we will not only compare the performance of these two versions but also look at some of their other features. So let's dig in. The Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor makes use of a switchable output transformer matrix, something that is not very common to find in any other product. This unique feature helps to balance and quickly fine-tune your signal. This means that if you want a release boost or a compression level that is greater than 50% all you have to do is flip the switch. The only thing to keep in mind is that when you handle your mids to high mids, you might experience some artifacts and bleed. You can also carry out your gain reduction precisely by choosing the inputs and the outputs.
Another feature worth mentioning is the fact that the T-Yoke design of this compressor is pretty major. It gives the class A Mastering Compressor its iconic surround sound quality. This means that it really opens out your sound and allows it to breathe. This is especially useful for mastering and doesn't just apply to, mastering. Although the T-Yoke design does make it impossible for reverb tails to leave and enter at the same time, it greatly enhances your sense of space.
Both the Red and Green Class A Mastering Compressors are built with some serious attention to detail. They are made from 2mm thick aluminum, and they feature a five-point mute on the front, a semi-detachable 2-point-faced transformer, a variable speed drive (VSD) and a solid-state version of the original Class A design. Blue pillows are made of 5mm thick maple wood and feature a compressible face. The knob which allows you to change the output options also rotates around the face, and it has got blue pillows. This knob has 25mm in diameter and a 10mm diameter cast aluminum. It also features a 2-player-switchable mute. The Red Class A Mastering Compressor features an LED displaying the factory history of that particular compressor. d2c66b5586
