5254 dual diode bridge compressor offers two channels of iconic diode bridge compression, thoughtfully improved and refined for modern tracking, mixing, and mastering.

Originally developed for the dynamics circuit of the acclaimed Shelford Channel, the 5254 Dual Diode Bridge Compressor captures the soul of Rupert Neve’s original 2254 compressor while providing modern updates including advanced timing control, significantly lower noise, fully stepped controls throughout, and internal parallel processing capabilities. Capture the punchy, larger-than-life tone used on countless hit records for the last 50 years.

Custom-shape your compression envelope with the unified timing control, which enables a much wider range of responses than vintage units or clones. Internal blend control enables you to subtly dial in more dramatic compression settings for color as desired. Enhanced from the vintage units’ half-wave design, the updated sidechain detector provides substantially more accuracy.
