Decades of Dynamics Processing

The LiN 76 has been carefully designed to recreate the timbres of nuances of vintage-era ‘76-style FET compressors.

The most classic and respected sounds of dynamic processors live on in the LiN 76, as well as the infamous “all-button” mode made famous by British recording engineers throughout the 1970’s — a sound that’s still popular today.

The Lindell LiN 76: instant vibe for today’s demanding studios.

Some notes on Attack and Release: Compressor control schemes can vary significantly. On the LiN76 we’ve chosen “left is less, right is more.”

Turn the Attack knob to the left for faster attack times and to the right for slower, with a 20uS to 800uS range.
Turn the Release knob to the left for faster release times and to the right for slower, with a 50mS to 1200mS range.
