In general, the “best” compressor for a particular application depends on the specific needs and preferences of the user. Wave compressors are a type of audio compressor that are specifically designed to work with digital audio signals, and they can be effective in controlling dynamic range and improving the perceived loudness of a recording.

However, there are many other types of compressors available, including analog compressors, software plugins, and hardware units, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Ultimately, the best compressor for a particular task will depend on factors such as the specific sound being recorded, the desired end result, and the user’s budget and technical expertise.

Modeled on a rare vintage Fairchild 670 from the personal collection of Grammy award-winning producer/engineer Jack Joseph Puig, the PuigChild hardware compressor faithfully recreates the unmistakable sound of the original.

Featuring dual mono, linked, and lateral vertical stereo modes, 16/24-bit digital I/O, and outstanding AD/DA converters, housed in a rugged 2U rack unit, the PuigChild is a world-class compressor — in the studio or on the road.
