Spaceman Ixion Optical Compressor - Yellow

The Ixion is an extremely smooth, clean, and low noise optical compressor. It provides you with an ultra-wide tonal palette for an astronomical amount of variation, depth and dimension. It is lovingly crafted using Spaceman's signature FET stages, a comprehensive set of controls, and an exceptional signal-to-noise ratio. You get the gain-reduction power of an optical photocell, a mix control for parallel compression techniques, a unique equal loudness filter in the sidechain, treble-centric tone control, the option to run at higher voltages for extended headroom, and an externally accessible sidechain input. The Ixion offers the fattest, juiciest tone with a warm, vintage appeal so you can push beyond boundaries into uncharted realms of sonic possibility.
