WesAudio's Timbre is an all tube vari-mu compressor based on the 6386 tube, inspired by the old, famous and much desired Gates STA-Level compressor.

This vintage-style compressor is made from the highest quality of components, Carnhill transformers, easy to use, full of colour and sweetness.

Augmenting the design, we have added new features like the third mode of operation with shorter attack time, a high-pass sidechain filter, a link for stereo operation and a bypass function.

Timbre utilises a novel programme controlled release circuit which creates density and consistency while minimising typical compressor side-effects at up to 40dB of gain reduction!
