WA76: The Classic Smack, Punch, and Tone

When it comes to compression, there are few tools that have made as big a mark on history than the classic FET compressor the WA76 is based on. With super-fast attack and release times, the WA76 is perfect for clamping down on transients and adding the renowned punch and tone of the original.

Use it to bring vocals forward in the mix to ensure every word, breath, and nuance is heard. Use it to even out dynamics on bass while adding an aggressive edge that will cut through cluttered mixes. Switch it into “all-buttons-in” mode to get the cannonball snare sounds heard on counless hits.
