A friend told me about an 80´s Aphex exciter-kind-of-thing that I´d like to have. He just didn´t remember which model it was. It´s a "dynamic exciter", meaning that it brings up the high-end and brings life to whatever that is too compressed and thereby suffering from a high-end loss. Just as some of the dolby-stuff. Rumour has it that these are cheap and better. According to him you basically can squeeze the hell out of a track and with the Aphex hooked up it doesn´t sound compressed. Go figure...a friend of the friend apparently has a rack full of them and uses them all the time for everything. Makes me curious... So anyone, do you have a clue of which model this could be??? It´s supposed to have quite a lot of knobs on the front panel.
