Audio & Design Recording F769-XR Vocal Stresser
EQ and dynamics processor (seventies)

One of the first outboard “vocal channels” from England. Exceptional equalizer section with nice high-end sheen. EQ can be placed before the dynamics, after the dynamics, or into the dynamics’ sidechain circuit. The dynamics section is based on the famous ADR Compex unit; an aggressive compressor and separate limiter, as well as an expender/gate, all of which are useable simultaneously. Great for rock vocal and snare drum. Someone once asked me, “What year did they sell that one at Sears?”
