Abbey Road Plug-Ins Releases RS124 Compressor Plug-In For Mac & PC
Abbey Road Plug-ins has released the RS124 Compressor Plug-in, an emulation of three original RS124 hardware units from Abbey Road’s outboard collection for Mac and PC.
The original RS124 valve compressors were introduced in 1960 and were in constant use at the studios throughout the decade. Their warm, creamy sonic personality and unique features made them the compressor of choice for recording, mixing and mastering. This is a key part of the distinctive sound of Abbey Road Studios and each unit was hand-built and exclusive to this famed recording facility.
» Three authentic compressor models based on vintage Abbey Road units
» Each model recreates the sound and behaviour of the hardware unit
» Authentic replication visually and sonically of the original hardware
» Tested and approved by Abbey Road Studios’ Director of Engineering, Peter Cobbin
» Added SuperFuse mode for more aggressive compression effect
» Dedicated LCR version allowing Pro Tools HD users to ‘stack’ all three units on top of one another
