The G24 is an optical stereo compressor – aimed at mix and mastering functions. It’s for those situations where you have a mix that is already nearly-perfect balanced, but you want to control some part of its dynamic without messing up the overall definition.
With its fully passive signal path it sounds clean and very expensive at the same time. In a unique twist, the G24 contains two separate side-chains which you can use individually or blend together. In essence, with G24 it feels like you are using two distinct compressors in one box.
Elysia museq is a special box. It is a fully discrete, Class-A dual-mono equaliser that’s exceptionally well designed and built, with a sound that will redefine your perception of equalisation.
Fairchild 670 recreation assembled by Distopik. It's made from original parts as well as parts used for repairing originals by the likes of Vintage King.

It's not really a transparent or seriously fast-acting peak limiter, though it was in the 1950s when it was introduced and used on Beatles albums.
This one is not for the faint-hearted. Distopik Audio Destruction Unit is based upon the famous REDD-47 tube microphone preamplifier circuit but sports Carnhill input and output transformers and packs both REDD's "in your face" high mids and a hint of that British signature weight in the low-mids.
