The Shadow Hills Industries Dual Vandergraph stereo compressor is a direct descendant of the Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor - in API 500 Series format. Packing discrete, fully Class A VCAs, the Dual Vandergraph carries forth its big sibling's sterling reputation for exceptional sound quality and performance. With its pristine sonics, the Dual Vandergraph makes an ideal bus compressor, and its four compression ratios make it easy to teach even the rowdiest signals good manners.
Easy to operate
The Shadow Hills Industries Dual Vandergraph operates in stereo, however you control it with a single set of variable attenuators, rather than having to juggle two sets of controls. Nice! Even cooler, it will function normally with just a a single channel connected. Perhaps best of all, the Dual Vandergraph takes up very little of your precious studio real estate - just two spaces in your 500 Series chassis.
All the control you need
The Dual Vandergraph sports all the amenities you'd expect in a world-class compressor: four compression ratios, sidechain filters, hardwire bypass, and a vintage-flavored engraved front panel with a VU meter, tophat switch caps, and big classic knobs for compression and output level. No matter how gnarly or mild-mannered your input signal, compression ratios of 2:1, 2.5:1, 4:1, and 8:1 let you tailor your dynamics exactly the way you want them.
Seriously built to sound great
The uncompromising build of the Shadow Hills Industries Dual Vandergraph is, of course, to a large degree responsible for its amazing performance. Packed with top-drawer components such as discrete, fully Class-A VCAs and Swiss-made discrete rotary attenuators, every component was painstakingly selected based on its contribution to the overall design objective: stunning sound quality. With its impressive sound and performance, ease of operation, and weapons-grade build quality, the Shadow Hills Industries Dual Vandergraph belongs in your 500 Series arsenal.
