The Chandler Limited RS124 packs three legendary Abbey Road RS124 compressors into one chassis. Over the decades since the Abbey Road RS124 graced Beatles' recordings, there were attempts to re-create the hardware from sketchy information; none of these efforts fully realized the elusive musical soul of the original EMI unit. Schematics relayed only so much of the design. So Chandler turned to historic units provided by Abbey Road, as well as handwritten modification memos that would prove essential in understanding the essence of the beast. They succeeded! The Chandler Limited RS124 nails the behavior and sonics of the original - which Peter Cobbin, Abbey Road's Director of Engineering, describes as "pure cream being drizzled slowly into and over a mix."

Put a legendary compressor in your rack
The Abbey Road RS124 is a holy-grail compressor. It has a lovely, colorful sound, and a colorful back story. In the late 1950s, EMI procured several Altec 436B tube compressors for their London studios. In 1960, EMI engineers modified them so heavily (and as they were never used outside of Abbey Road), they felt comfortable re-naming them, and thus, the RS124 was born. Imagine getting your hands on the compressor that was used on virtually every Beatles recording made at Abbey Road Studios! The RS124 lives on, courtesy of Chandler Limited. The Chandler Limited RS124 sounds incredible - and like no other compressor you've ever used.
What the RS124 can do for you
The RS124's smooth, creamy sonic character and transient-taming prowess comes without a hint of muffling during heavy compression. Once you use the Chandler Limited RS124, you'll find out what Abbey Road engineers quickly realized: this is an indispensable tool for tracking, buss compression, mixing, and mastering. Along with original Input, Output, and Recovery (release) controls and the unique Hold setting, the Chandler Limited RS124 ups the ante with modern features like adjustable attack, selectable output impedance, and the cutting-edge SuperFuse. Google up some photos of Abbey Road Studios in the 1960s. You will see an RS124 in just about every control room. Wouldn't it be great to have one (or two) in yours?
