format_quote Chandler Limited’s critically acclaimed TG1 Limiter, TG2 Pre-Amp, and Curve Bender EQ, each known for their remarkable reproduction of the EMI TG sound, have been combined to form the ultimate TG Microphone Cassette reimagined to work in a modern recording studio context.

The pre-amp section of the TG Microphone Cassette makes use of the Chandler Limited TG2 pre-amplifier based on the vintage EMI TG12428. The TG2 pre-amp section includes switchable coarse and variable fine gain adjustment controls for up to +70db overall gain, selectable LINE, DI, 48V phantom power, phase reverse, and switchable rumble filter (low cut.)

The TG2 pre-amp section is coupled directly to the Curve Bender equalizer section.

The TG Microphone Cassette’s equalizer section is derived from the famed and greatly expanded Chandler Limited EMI TG12345 Curve Bender EQ. The Curve Bender EQ section provides Hi and Low shelf, frequency selectable presence, output control, and bypass functionality.

The Curve Bender EQ section is the second stage of the TG2 pre-amp section, and the EQ output control works as a fader would on a console.

The compressor section of the TG Microphone Cassette is a special adaptation of the Chandler Limited TG1 Limiter tracing its lineage to the historic EMI TG12413 mixing and mastering console limiters.

EMI technical engineers experimented with the use of optos in their audio compressors, and now for the first time ever Chandler Limited introduces the TG1 Opto compressor.

The TG1 Opto compressor section of the TG Microphone Cassette is fully independent and separately patchable (via standard XLR connection) apart from the TG2 Pre Amp / Curve Bender EQ section, allowing for use of the compressor/limiter individually on sources. An XLR cable (purchased separately) is required to patch the TG1 Opto compressor into the Cassette's chain.

The TG1 Opto is stereo linkable to a second unit via a standard ¼” cable.

The TG1 Opto compressor's feature-set includes: Hold, Attack, Release, selectable sharp/rounded knee, output or makeup gain, and true bypass.
