The Seventeen X is a one channel transformer coupled compressor/limiter. It's a FET (field effect transistor) design that incorporate some new and exclusive features such as "High Pass Sidechain Filter", "Mix Knob" mix between dry and wet signal (parallel compression), "Signal High Pass and Low Pass Filters" smooth 6db/oct filters that colors the sound nicely.
The 17X uses the absolute best parts available: Alps pots, Carnhill Transformers, Wima Caps, Sifam Vintage VU, Original Fender Super Switches, Gold plated XLR's, etc.
The 17X is our take on the classic "1176 Sound". It can be smooth or it can be a rock'n'roll monster when using ratio 100:1 (all in). Please have listen to the sound examples below.
The 17X is a joint venture between producer Tobias Lindell (Lindell Audio, Studio Bohus) and IGS Audio.
