The AM660 is a faithful recreation of the classic sound and compression profile of the 660, using the AnaMod™ process to model the complex tube circuitry of the 660 and implement it entirely in the analog domain. Unlike a digital plug-in or processor based outboard gear, there is no latency, and no A/D or D/A conversions to compromise the sound.


Time Constants: 1-6 are the classic 660 time constants, 2a and 2b are variations on #2
