Someone just MAJORLY stepped up their game! I'm looking forward to reports on this.
Two 78s this month . . . after years of clamoring for one. WOWZERS.
Now Ward why would you be waiting years for one with all your $$$$ you have stashed under the mattress. I know that mattress must be Super Kingsize or even Emperor size to hold all those mics +$$ stashed under there. The question is - How many of those mattresses do you have in your all properties???

I am thinking off adding a 500hz HPF position for overheads. Maybe we can add more mods in the future (tube output, 2:1 ratio, etc...)
Compressors are so much fun to make, endless options.
2:1 ratio is something I find interesting for 1176 citcuits. The UA AE has it and you can really push vocals into those. That could be a good option for the whole lineup maybe?
People keep saying this, which influences manufacturers but I'm curious as to who actually uses it. I know I tried it at first with my 76ADGs but found it nearly useless in real applications.
What I DID miss was the 12:1 ratio which everyone knows is the brightest, but not overbearingly so. 4 8 12 and 20 are there for a reason. Now, if you could press the 4:1 and 8:1 ratios simultaneously and get a true 12:1 ratio with the tonal imprint? That would be killer. Then including the 2:1 would make sense for the 0.01% of users who like it. IYKYK I'm kidding a little bit here.
I'm really looking forward to getting an 1178 and using one again, I've been crying for this and informing some folks for a number of years, and now we are at the dawn of a new source!
I've heard some demos of 1178s and clones that would be off-putting to me, if I didn't know better. You see, an 1178 does NOT have to pump and breathe to heavily compress/limit. Not. At. All. IYKYK
There are quite a few reasons to own one. Drum buss in mixing, but also overheads during tracking. Backing vocals, especially group vocals, and daisy chain both channels together for lead vocals - there's a real trick to this one.
Most of all, it's like an 1176G or H's 1/2 sibling . . . IYKYK
