Tegeler Audio has announced its latest compressor, the Schwerkraftmaschine which is quite possibly the most intelligent compressor yet.

Featuring 11 compression modes, the Schwerkraftmaschine can "emulate the behaviour of any existing compressor". The unit comes with a plugin and combined with the motorised potentiometers; settings can be recalled at anytime in your DAW and anywhere over a network.

The 'gravity machine' also features a side-chain filter which determines the frequency range the compressor will respond to, shown in the video below.

Features include:

  • 11 compression modes
  • DAW control via the plugin
  • Network connection
  • Side-chain filter
  • Stereo device
  • Transformer balanced inputs and output
  • Frequency response: 20 - 40,000 Hz +/- 1.5dB
  • Internal power supply (25W) with a high-end toroidal transformer
  • Height: 132mm (3U), Width: 483mm, Depth: 250mm

The Schwerkraftmaschine is in production now and will be available soon for €3499. For ordering and more information check out the Tegeler Audio website.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
