Dizengoff D864 Vari Mu
The classic sound of a varimu compressor, with a couple of tone-shaping extras; check out the Dizengoff D864
- Single channel vari-mu compressor
- Input, ratio, threshold, attack and release controls
- Dizengoff have also added to additional features:
- Growl is a sort of parallel germanium compression that can be switched in and out of circuit. It adds a nice, trashy edge to the sound
- Glow shifts the behavior of the output stage. It gives a more mid-forward response by shifting the way the output transformer saturates. This makes it a great tool for bringing out a vocal or snare crack within a mix. It also seems to give a bit more 'glue' to tracks
- Stereo-link option
The Dizengoff D864 Varimu Compressor is based on the classic Federal AM864 vari-mu compressor.
Varimu compressors are known for their musical compression behavior. While they can be finicky, once mastered they are wonderful tools.
The D864 is not really a beginner's compressor. While it doesn't thump, pop, or otherwise swamp like many varimu compressors do, it does take a bit of time to master.
The Dizengoff D864 sounds wonderful on a variety of sources.
Dizengoff chose to base the D864 transformers on the much loved Peerless-Altec designs of the 1960’s. These are very highly regarded for their signal quality to this day, and used examples fetch a premium and they chose nickel-50 core material for good signal fidelity.
For feature set, Dizengoff have added some extras not found in the original build. For example: variable attack and release, as well as ratio, threshold, and input trim controls. Additionally, we included switchable bypass, link, and two unique features — Growl and Glow.
