Classic Compressor Modelled

US Sknote releases F76 component-level model of an 1176      13/10/22

Classic Compressor Modelled

Sknote tells us that F76 is a component-level, greatest detail, model of one of the main colors on the palette of audio mixing. They say that all the details have been reproduced and a few features have been added to give even more control on the sound.

Main features:

  • Component-level model of the original hardware.
  • Full control on all possible combinations of Ratio buttons (including the famous "All-in" setting).
  • Extra control for preamplifier "Headroom", for fine control on interaction between feedback compression and stage saturation.
  • Extra control for sample-aligned mixing between processed and dry signal, for parallel compression.
  • Auto-gain function, the output volume automatically matches output to input level (no ear-fooling by levels).
  • Simple to use.
  • Simple preset management with copy-paste and clear-text option (share presets as text).
  • Resize-able interface (VST3/AU).


F76 is available as VST/AU/AAX for Windows and Mac OS systems (including Apple-silicon native).
