LTD-2 - Chandler Limited
Based on the Neve 2254 compressor.
The Chandler Limited LTD-2 is based on the 2254 compressor which is the class A predecessor to the 2264 and 33609. Construction is similar to the LTD-1. The same audio circuit with a modified set of controls (i.e. attack times not on original and more and faster release times). The front panel controls are as follows- 20db gain make up, threshold, attack (6 positions), release (6 positions including auto), stereo link, and bypass.
The control functions and applications seem to be more similar to those of the venerable Neve 32264a and 33609, with the thick and rich audio qualities of the Neve 2254a and Neve 2254e. On the whole, this unit is more than just another "Neve-a-like"... it takes the original Neve 2254 concept to the next level of tone and flexibility.
All connections are transformer balanced with pin 2 hot.
Chandler PSU-1 is needed to power unit.
