Chandler Limited TG1 Limiter

A magical recreation of the classic EMI TG12413 Limiter used in consoles from the late ’60s from world class studios such as Abbey Road - meet the Chandler Limited TG1.These rare pieces were never commercially available, and only EMI owned studios had access to them. The TG1 Limiter was originally designed to be like the Fairchild 660/670 which was loved by many EMI engineers including Geoff Emerick, but it ended up with its own very special sound.


    • Chandler Limited TG1 Limiter PRODUCT FEATURES:

      TG equipment was used on many classic records. The Limiter was featured on every channel of TG consoles used to record The Beatles “Abbey Road” and Pink Floyd “Dark Side of the Moon,” in addition to albums by Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones.

      The Limiter/Compressor features an all discrete circuit with transformer balanced input and output. The limiting element is a rarely seen diode network that produces smooth, pleasing distortion. The warm open sound, often compared to a Fairchild 670 set to stun, is very audible and squishy sounding while maintaining its clarity and high frequency response.

      TG1 Updates & Modifications:

      Harmonic Distortion Function

      Now standard on all Abbey Road Special Edition TG-1’s, this option allows bypassing of the compressor/limiter threshold but leaves all circuits in the signal path, turning the unit into a powerful Harmonic Distortion generator capable of kicking out up to 2% Total Harmonic Distortion. That’s more than 2 times the amount of analog tape! And all with 100% discrete transformer balanced circuits. Adjust the input for amount of THD and the output to match level. Try running Distortion on one channel and hard limiting on the other. The ultimate in retro! This option is placed on the front panel of the unit with a toggle switch for each channel.

      New Input Control

      All TG1 units now ship with audio taper input controls. These new pots give better control of the unit at lower amounts of compression, better overall resolution of the limiter, and allows the user to get “less” gain reduction from the unit.
