SKU: HER21C Category: Tag:


The Heritage Audio Successor is a class A stereo bus compressor based on the legendary diode bridge designs. It maintains the sonic character of its predecessors while adding new features that make it a a new beast on its own. Heritage Audio Successor compression delivers a classic sound of vintage British compressors with Carnhill transformer balanced inputs and outputs. The attack and release times are faster and with the Mix/Dry mix control we will have a powerful parallel compression. Step controls offer precise settings and easy parameter recall.
