Black Lion 1176 Bluey
Mr Steve Mac , 25.06.2020
Bought a couple of these and I am totally blown away . Have owned quite a few 1176's over the years but these just have the magic . I think I am going to buy some more .

Sehr gutes Gerät
maniacofsound, 22.02.2021
Ich habe den Bluey seit Mitte Dezember 2020 und bin sehr zufrieden mit dem Gerät. Bisher kam er auf männlichen Gesangsaufnahmen zum Einsatz, als nächstes will ich auch Kick und Snare ausprobieren. Die Möglichkeit parallel zu komprimieren habe ich getestet, hat aber beim Gesang in den Songs nicht gepasst. Trotzdem ist das ein tolles feature, das in anderem Kontext bestimmt gute Resultate bringen kann. Die Lead Vox bekommen eine angenehme, unaufdringliche Färbung, selbst bei starker Kompression über oder um 10db arbeitet der Bluey unauffällig (bei entsprechender Attack/Release Einstellung). Es ist ein Vergleich zu den Software Klonen hörbar und spürbar, aber ehrlicherweise muss man sagen, dass es jetzt nicht der riesengroße Aha-Moment ist, wenn man mit guten Plugins gearbeitet hat. Trotzdem, finde ich, ist der Preis gerechtfertigt. Die Haptik der Regler ist angenehm, es macht Spass damit "zu spielen". Klare Empfehlung.

Tiens sa promesse
chris1818, 16.07.2020
Ce compresseur tiens sa promesse. N'étant pas un afficionados du hardware, et étant plutot pro-software, je dois reconnaître, que la différence est notable sur le chant et ou la basse.
Les réelles différences se situent au niveau de l'attaque (il est plus graby), de la densité, de la distortion et du leveling. Que ce soit le chant, ou la basse, en tracking, qd on lui rentre dedans (7db de gain reduction), il n'y a quasi plus à recompresser. C'est parfaitement levelé.

Vild lyd !
MrMiagi, 16.05.2020
Den lyder simpelthen som ingen andre maskiner og alligevel genkender man den fra klassiske 1176’er.
Den er virkelig unik og betjeningen er ret nem.
Den kan helt klart anbefales og jeg er virkelig stolt at Black Lion Audio for den super høje kvalitet af maskinen og den gode lyd fra CLA. Dette er helt klart en vinder og et “must-have” kompressor i ens studie. Den overgår ALLE kloner af UA’s 1176 Rev. A Blue Stripe.
