Chandler Limited commemorates historic RS124 with Giveaway Drawing
Shell Rock, IA – June 2016 … Chandler Limited, the only company in the world authorized to develop, manufacture and market the ‘Official Equipment’ of EMI/Abbey Road Studios, delivering the classic analog sounds recording and professional musicians seek, announces a onetime giveaway drawing for an RS124 Compressor from Chandler’s esteemed EMI/Abbey Road Studios product line.
The Chandler Limited RS124 Compressor, is a recreation of one of the most coveted recording tube compressors of all time, the legendary EMI/Abbey Road RS124, reimagined for use in the modern studio environment.
During the late 1950s, EMI acquired Atlec tube compressors for use at their studios and soon realized the units were insufficient for critical recording applications. Abbey Road technical engineers modified the Altec units to meet their standards and ultimately ended up designing an entirely new compressor in the process, the RS124.
Upon its introduction at the studio, the RS124 compressor quickly became popular with Abbey Road engineers. The RS124 was so integral to the recording, mixing and mastering process that a pair can be seen in almost every control room photo in Abbey Road Studios during the '60s period. The RS124 compressor is most closely associated with recordings made by The Beatles at Abbey Road Studios.
The RS124 Compressor was built for use at Abbey Road Studios, and was never commercially available.
More than a half century later, Chandler Limited reintroduced the magic of the RS124 to critical acclaim, with its modern incarnation of the now historic tube compressor. For more information about the RS124 Compressor, visit ChandlerLimited.com.
To commemorate the introduction of Chandler Limited’s RS124 and the return of the legendary sound of the historic Abbey Road RS124 after more than 50 years, Chandler is giving away a single Chandler Limited RS124 Compressor to the winner of the drawing.
