The AnaMod AM660 is an exact replica of the classic Fairchild 660 compressor.<span> </span>It has been a compressor that has been copied many times since it was made, both in terms of hardware and plug-ins, but the AM660 is literally an exact copy.<span> </span>Of course it has a different look, but from what I have been told it has the same innards.<span> </span>The unit has a VU meter, isn’t rack mountable and I’m not sure on the exact connections as the one that I’ve used was already racked up in the studio that I used it in.


<p class="MsoNormal">In terms of easiness of use, the AnaMod AM660 couldn’t be too much easier.<span> </span>You’ve only got three parameters to work with, including input gain, threshold, and time constant, which is like attack.<span> </span>There is also a bypass button that is labeled ‘in.’<span> </span>The VU meter measure the output I believe, and I don’t think that there is a way to program it.<span> </span>


<p class="MsoNormal">I have used both the original Fairchild 660 and the AnaMod AM660, so I feel like I’m in a good position to judge how the AM660 compares to the original, and I really can’t too much of difference between the units.<span> </span>While I’ve never had the chance to shoot them out at the same time, or even in the same studio, from what I had remembered of the original Fairchild 660, I can confidently say that this version sounds pretty close if not exactly like it.


Of course it definitely wasn’t a cheap endeavor to recreate the 660, so this will cost you a decent amount of money, but not as much as an original 660 will run you.<span> </span>So if you’re looking for this classic 660 without having to seek one out, I’d recommend going straight for AnaMod’s AM660.
