The MS76 is one of 4 hand built units offered by the Denmark based manufacturer MUNSON & FLETCHER. The name suggests it's based on the beloved 1176 but with a different twist.
In addition to the usual compression parameters (ratio, attack, release etc.) the MS76 operates in Stereo, Dual Mono and M/S mode. It also offers the notorious "ALL BUTTONS IN" setting via a switch and a BLEND knob that allows you mix the uncompressed and compressed signal to your liking. Last but not least there is also a High Pass Filter on the side chain detector (very helpful for eliminating pumping caused by the low end).
These added features are a definite plus and will surely be put to good use by many mixing and mastering engineers.
There is also a Lundahl LL5402 output transformer upgrade option.
Since the MS76 is hand built to order the delivery time is currently 3 to 5 weeks.
