DIY ssl studio compressor

A constant need for a new (or rather old) sound gear makes me feel a little bit guilty of being stuck into 'want-buy-new-stuff-to-make-better-art' scheme. So I had decided to somehow punish myself by doing it with my bare hands and well, it's kind of working! Luckily a lot of plans of classic studio gear I'm really fond of are released into public domain. After intensive winter-nights training I managed to build the first box I've always wanted to get - a functional replica of the famous SSL4000 desk stereo summing compressor, very useful in audio mixing and for final touch in live acts also.

There is more DIY studio stuff ahead of me, preparations are under way, big stereo tube-only preamp is coming, but probably next winter ;)

See for nice DIY projects
