Edward The Compressor...

by Chris Randall

Don't know how I missed this, but I just came across the TFPro Edward The Compressor, a multiple architecture compressor for what I think is a not-too-bad price. You can select VCA, 1176, LA2A, and "Green Box" (which is the original JoeMeek compressor) modes of operation. Since the "TF" in TFPro is Ted Fletcher, the original designer of the JoeMeek SC2, that would probably explain its inclusion in the same sentence with the 1176 and LA2A.

In any case, this is an interesting concept, and while $1700 may seem a little steep for a stereo compressor, you are, in effect, getting four different compressors for the price of one. Worth checking out, but I'd rent it before I bought, if I was you.

Yeah, I did, which is why I missed it in the first place, I imagine.

In any case, it appears to be available for ordering or rental direct from the company, and their website is paid up and current, so I assume all is correct. A serious caveat emptor applies, as with all things.

it looks like there is another model on their website and this is a picture of a prototype , or visa versa
