    Fletcher on a trip over to the UK said (while we were looking at one being repaired at Funky Junk UK) , that the compressor on the EMI console was perhaps of his favorite ever.. That got my attention!

    Chandler seems to be making copies, and damn! dont they look cool!

    :)
     
  2. I agree they are making cool looking components. No prices given though. I'm headed down to Westlake Audio later this week, they are a Waves vendor, I'll see if they more info or have them in stock.

    "squish' sounding could be fun.
     
  3. I've been drooling over photographs of Mike Hedges TG board for some years now... I'd really like to hear one of those TG spinoffs! :roll:

    http://www.chandlerlimited.com is the right address. I get the same code pages when I try to open with Netscape, if you can, try it with Internet Explorer, it works fine.

    I can't seem to find a price anywhere for these. I email Chandler and hopefully they'll get back to me soon.

    Jules, what did he say the EMI sounded good on? Is it a versatile piece or one of those things that only sounds good at certain times like a Compex?

    I dunno, I will have to ask him! Meanwhile it appears they will be distributed in the UK by Unity Audio... I hope a unit can get left behind in Europe after the Munich AES..

    I just received a Chandler Ltd. EMI TG12413 compressor. http://www.chandlerlimited.com/emitg12413.asp This is going to be a fun Sunday! I already have the Chandler 1073 & two Chandler 2254's. I love them. I have just fired up my new DMX-R100 (finally) and I'm starting a fifteen-song album song mix. I will have plenty of opportunities to experiment with the EMI. I'll let you know how the 'squishy' monster works and sounds.

    Great news! It will be a groove to know if you plan to keep it, what it's good on & what other comps you have!

    At the Musikmesse I talked to the guy from Chandler (I think it's Mr Chandler himself - really nice guy) I was interested about the 1073. He gave me a quick overview - sounded really nice (from memory very close to the real thing).
    Then he showed me the EMI on a drum track (room mic.) It was stunning - really wonderful equipement. If I hadnt't to save money for my Protools HD upgrade, I'd buy both units imediately.

    My 0.2 Euro ;)
