Wes Audio BETA 76
The WesAudio Beta76 is a professional 2U compressor/limiter that has the same electronic circuit as its popular predecessor but now features a two mode switch (Modern/Vintage) that changed the desymmetrization of the input signal. A True Bypass switch was introduced, as well as a high-pass filter in the Compressor’s Sidechain path.
There are three cutoff frequencies – 60, 90, 150 Hz – thanks to which Beta76 is less sensitive to low frequencies. The filter is particularly beneficial to the operation of two compressors in a stereo pair, which are easily connected with a prepared Jack-Jack cable.
The entire system operates in class A. The element responsible for the gain reduction is a FET transistor, giving the effect of rapid and pure compression. There is a high quality Carnhill audio transformer on the output favourably affecting the final sound of the compressor. The housing is made from high quality brushed stainless steel, whereas the panel is 4mm brushed aluminium.
