1176 Extra Ratios.
« on: December 02, 2012, 06:56:52 PM »
Hi Everyone, I'm looking at adding on some extra ratios to an 1176 that I am in the process of building.
I have had a look around this site and other places on the internet and have found some useful stuff (thanks to the users who have uploaded schematics) , but I have not found exactly what i need.

I have found a circuit that shows how to accomplish 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 20 ratios, and another circuit that allows for 2, 4, 8, 12, and 20.
I was hoping somebody would be able to help me, I am wanting to add even more ratios, including 3 and 5 so providing a total of 9 ratios from 2 to 20. Would this even be possible? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I'm curious if you've found the existing ratios lacking in some way.

for starters  the original units had ratios of 4,8,12,20. Then at some point universal audio released a limited anniversary edition version that had ratios 2,4,8,20.

I find it the 2:1 ratio so useful that I modded my mc77's so that it had 2,4,8,20.  works for me.

I tend to use the 1176 on 4:1 and 8:1, and only using the much higher ratios occasionally. I also use the chameleon labs 7720, which has ratios of 1.5:1, 2:1, and 4:1 and I'm quite a fan of these really low ratios for just touching the signal. I have even seen some compressors that have ratios of 1.4:1  and 1.7:1, not actually used these ones but would be quite nice for some very subtle compression.

as far as the original ratios lacking in some way, i wouldn't say that there is any thing wrong with them, it's just a case of having increased flexibility.
