The two channel Fairchild 670 is the “Holy Grail” of compressors in
studio gear esoterica, not only because of its price (around $30,000 on
the vintage market), but its extreme rareness and the difficulties in
maintaining such a piece. With 14 transformers, 20 vacuum tubes, and a
6 rack-space encompassing girth, the 670 is the heavyweight champion of
compression weighing in at 65 pounds. UA’s emulation is modeled after
Allen Side’s favorite unit from Ocean Way Studios. UA went to great
efforts to capture the unique and sublime sonics of this famous mu-type
tube limiter, as well as maintaining all the features of the original.
UA adds an auxiliary panel allowing access to rear access controls,
common mods, and unique Universal Audio-only additions.
