Abbey Road Plug-ins releases TG12413 v2.0
Abbey Road Plug-ins has released version 2.0 of TG12413, an emulation of the compressor / limiter from the legendary EMI TG12345 mixing console, which was used on many classic recordings such as The Beatles’ Abbey Road and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.
The TG12345 consoles were never sold commercially and were only available to EMI studios.
The plug-in brings the sound of this rare and sought-after unit to the modern DAW user and sets a new standard in vintage hardware modelling. It functions as a 2:1 compressor or as a limiter with up to 20dB of gain reduction. It accurately reproduces the behaviour of the original and features an authentic, TG-style graphical interface. In addition, it can be used in multi-channel configurations, supporting up to 7.1 surround operation.
Two plug-in modules are included, providing variations on the TG sound: the ‘1969’ module is modelled on the original from the TG12345 console and the ‘2005’ module is based on Chandler Limited’s TG1 compressor / limiter.
TG12413 key features
- Classic and contemporary modules.
- Compressor and limiter modes from the original hardware.
- TG-style controls and gain reduction meter.
- Mono, stereo and multi-channel operation.
- Automation and control surface support.
TG12413 is available in TDM ($560 USD), RTAS, VST and AU ($335 USD) versions.
