    Anyone know where a couple of these puppies can be had?
    I know VK has some but...
    Fletcher? maybe?
    ftwdk these are Helios 760 compressors.
    thanks-Mike

    PS. please no stories about "cover engineering" it's quite childish.
    or "rarer than hens teeth" may stay home as well.,

    Vintage King had some, I dunno if they still do. I hear they're very similar to the ADR 760, who apparently made or designed the 760 comp in the Helios boards, but I just have the ADR 760, which I like a lot.

    I got'em!.
    WOW , What a sound!
    Anyone else know these things? Fletch?
    these aren't popular at all. Yet they seem to smoke everything else. I see them WAY before I hear them.

    I got a pair of 760's not long after that original post. WOW. what a great sound! very versital.
    anyone else have some of these?
    I'm pretty sure ADR made them for Helios' consoles, which is where I got mine.
    MBeinhorn tipped me off to these things.
    thnx dude

    I use the ADR version on the Drum Bus a lot or on an aux a lot. The right side though is a little distorted anyone know a repairman for them.

    There is a website for Helios:
    http://www.helios-audio.com

    But with the passing of Dick Swettenham (founder of Helios) last year, does anyone know of the company's status?

    I hacked them from a desk that had four installed.
    then hacked them into my Helios desk.

    I've been in touch with Crispin over there, trying to get some paperwork on my desk but he is unable to go through records of the company's. (schemactics mainly) for my particular desk.
    oh yeah about the Jellfish drums, was it an ADR? Compex? stressor? hmmm... cool.
    cool tone whatever it is.

    Wow! Has anyone actually gotten their hands on a new Helios EQ? Is it a real product yet? I have to admit that $3K US for a dual channel EQ seems a little steep. I don't even think the originals have reached that kind of price yet.
