There’s nothing like spending a lazy Sunday afternoon building your very own optical compressor! Â That’s what CRAS students and instructors did under the supervision of Conservatory instructor and grammy award winner Jeff Thomas. Â This particular piece of audio deliciousness is inspired by the legendary LA-2A compressor, but with a few of chef Jeff’s own special mods for additional spice. Â Ingredients were specially brought in from China, United Kingdom and the good ol’ USA. Â Check out photos from the event held on June 28th, 2009.
