Review: Neve 2254A Compressor
Positives:Thing sounds so freakin sweet over drum buss, keys, and overall mix.
Negatives:These are cost prohibitive. They run roughly $8000 on the used market.
I absolutely love this compressor although I find it harder and harder to justify keeping given its value and rarity. It sounds like, for lack of a better term, hot cocoa. It warms, sweetens and brings my mix to life when put over mix buss. It is an excellent tool for tying mixes and stems together elegantly.
