Cwejman AP-1 MK2 Pre-amp/Compressor and VC-SC Stereo Compressor

AP-1 MK2
Incredibly clean Gain. 60 dB worth.
Guitar/Mic/Modular/Hardware Booster.
Saturates beautifully. Broadcast depth. Opto compression.
:"The Opto Compressor is build around an opto-electric device and low noise /high speed gain booster (pro-audio, j-fet op-amp for both instrument amplifier and compressor). "
ENV and GATE CV out - very useful

VC-SC - STEREO
Proper Metering - Gain Reduction and STEREO Out.
Proper control over Input Gain ( metering/Gain Reduction - even when Input Gain is turned down.)
Responsive Attack and Release with CV over most - including Make Up Gain, Attack and Release.

Gemini's Path

Compression MODE


"The Gemini's Path consists of two analog VCAs controlled by a handy modulation source which can take the shape of an expander, an intuitive compressor-like device, offer different panning solutions, and more! ...the Gemini's Path extracts triggers from any CV or audio signal source and reacts to transients, allowing for quick reactivity in dynamic contexts."

A trigger extractor composed of a full wave rectifier, an envelope follower & a trigger detector. ...The Threshold potentiometer [E] sets the detection level of the trigger detector. The Threshold LED [E] indicates when a trigger is detected.

A Modulation Source : receiving the incoming trigger from the precedent section, the modulation source generates envelopes, LFOs or random signals, and drives the VCAs control input. Each channel amplitude is shown by its activity LED

Image

MODES: (1) EXPANDER, (2) PUMP, (3) LFO and (4) Random PANNING

OTHER MODES: (1) Hold EXPANDER, (2) Animated PUMP, (3) AUTO PAN and (4) GRANUALIZER

VCA MODE: Standard AMP and PAN

2hp Comp

Compressor with side chain functionality.

Threshold, Ratio, Attack Release.
I didn't notice a Bypass or Threshold/Gain Reduction indicator

ETA: May 2020 ...https://www.twohp.com/coming-soon

Nice Lunchbox

Some amazing options there, interesting to see so many compressors on the market these days (and with tons of cool features too). Makes me wonder if a hardware version of my Leveler would be of any interest in the modular world?

:shock: Are you kidding me?! :shock:

My modular EQs and ENV followers are leagues more dynamic than any rack mount gear of the same flavor, imo.
ENV Followers over COMPRESSORS, is my approach.

Selig Leveller... YES, PLEASE!
Image

And, Selig GAIN - That would be a killer Panner, Preamp, MONOizer module...
Image

I don't see why we'd leave the Deesser out either. Very useful, if you're into KNOWING your RESONANCES, as I am/
Image

... now, how do we BlackBox this thing...? Let me know when Pre-Ordering is OPEN.
Image

Don't forget the back, though...

Selig, I really think you should give it a shot. I believe in you.

I have a friend who builds stuff, and was thinking to ask him about building a 500 series Leveler. But Eurorack, who knows - could be even easier to get up and running…I've moved out of town recently and finally have the space for a decent work bench, now if I can just remember how to solder ;)

Congrats on the Move. I wish you Greens, and Reds, and Yellows, and Purples in your new surroundings. It’s what I’d give up the city for.

That, and the SPACE for soldering. I would absolutely buy a Lunchbox of Selig, btw.

This Is no brag nor boast. Your stuff is stellar and would be the bees knees in hardware. So.... get on it, PLEASE!!! I’m your #1 fan. In this new time, I say.... Go for it! That would be Bonus to add to your Legacy :thumbs_up:

Thank you, and have a nice day!
