Plugin Alliance Brainworx Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor Class A v1.4.1

Brainworx Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor Class A – An even smoother-sounding version of the elite mastering compressor

An exclusive upgrade to one of the most prestigious hardware compressors of today
Available exclusively via Plugin Alliance, enhanced with patented TMT modeling, the Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor Class A Limited Edition is one of the rarest and most powerful high end compressors ever built. In 2012, Vintage King released the hardware version of the Class A, limiting production to only 50 units! Through patented TMT modeling, Brainworx has created an exacting emulation of this legendary hardware that improves on the original with expanded features and much punchier VCA.

Class A compression meets even sweeter transformers
With the limited-edition Mastering Compressor, Shadow Hills Industries included an updated Class A discrete compressor section utilizing Lundahl input transformers, as well as hand-wiring each compressor with Mogami Cable, an important factor when Brainworx Audio modeled one of these limited units as it gave the limited edition version a different character to the original. For this limited edition, Brainworx included its well-known retractable Extra Unit, featuring TMT, Mid-Side processing, Mono-Maker, Stereo Width, Parallel Mix and an additional Sidechain Filter.

Offers smoother compression and a faster, punchier tone at the same time
During rigorous shoot-out tests against the original Shadow Hills Industries Mastering Compressor, our pro audio engineers observed time and time again that the Class A version features a smoother compression sound, a punchier VCA, more pronounced sonic dimension, and a larger sense of “size” and perceived depth.

An alternate, even fuller flavor from Shadow Hills
With the gain set to identical values on both versions of the Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor, the Class A hardware version clocks in roughly 1-3 dB hotter, delivering a thicker and richer tone to whatever is running through it. To put it simply, this limited RED Class A version is punchier, faster and more versatile than the original GREEN version. Try GREEN for the Drum Buss and RED for the Master and you won’t be disappointed!
