KUSH BY UBK Tweaker compressor

Gregory Scott’s design is a fully-featured rackmount unit par excellence. John PIckford takes a look…

Choice Rated 9 out 10 MusicTech

Compressors, in both hardware and software form, come in many guises. While some are so simple that they feature little more than a gain reduction control, others are more multifaceted. The Kush Tweaker is firmly in the latter camp, with all the controls you would expect to find on a fullyfeatured compressor, as well as several other unusual and useful controls.

While many designers aim to recreate the sound, and often the look, of vintage compressors from the 1960s and 1970s, designer Gregory Scott set out to design a single unit that could faithfully mimic the behaviour of several classic designs, as well as offering its own varied styles of compression. The Tweaker offers everything from the smooth glue of an API 2500 over a mix buss, through to the fullon ‘all buttons in’ smash of a Urei 1176 limiter.

The Tweaker is a 1U, 19’’ rackmount unit that offers one (mono) channel of dynamics control. Provision is made for a second unit to be linked for precise stereo operation, which is useful as many users will want two units to take advantage of the Tweaker’s superb dynamic control capabilities on mix busses and other stereo sources.
