    ok lately I've been thinking about analog compressors and how little I know about them. My main console is a quarter inch tascam reel to reel 8 track and it's pretty good but I run it compressorless(mostly out of financial concerns as I'm just a college student trying to record stupid songs on off time) but I was wondering, what are the "Standard" analog compressor units and how much do they typically run? I may be coming into some money soon, maybe enough to buy one if I play my cards right.

    ALSO...

    I may be in the market for a nice analog reverb unit, one of the expensive ones in the 2,000 dollar range or thereabouts. What are the best names and titles for those as well? I'm a newbie when it comes to both as I havn't even begun thinking of either until recently. thank you.

    For analogue compressor I would recommend UREI 1176 or LA4 or Drawmer 1960 or a Valley People compressor, for a reverb try an EMT gold foil plate or build yourself a chamber out of a large concrete water tank.

    The RNC compressor has an all analog signal path, I think.

    I got to use a Gold foil again recently and wow I'd forgotten how good they sound - talk about smooth!! The water tank is pretty simple - get a tank, one or two speakers and one or two mikes. Put them in the tank and feed your aux sends to the speakers and pick it back up thru the mikes - pure chamber sound. Throw in a couple of mattresses if the delay is too long.
    Cheers
