Black Lion Audio’s “Bluey” is a modified 1176 “Blue Stripe” compressor based on Chris Lord-Alge’s “golden” unit. When certain components became unavailable, engineers were forced to change the circuitry, resulting in a unique compressor that has been heard on countless hits. To achieve the level of detail Chris Lord-Alge enjoyed on the original Bluey, Black Lion Audio not only used special Cinemag transformers, but also replicated the insert path of his console and built it directly into the Bluey – giving everyone the same console feel. In addition, a dry/wet mix was included for easy parallel compression and a stereo link. The compressor was designed with a vintage-inspired PCB layout, 1% resistors, polyester capacitors and a linear power supply. And like all Black Lion products, the Bluey is hand assembled and tested in the USA.

FET Compressor

Through decades of maintenance and repair, some devices, like wine, get better with time. The scarcity of original parts causes engineers to deviate from the original design and create an improved, unique, modified device. Mixing engineer Chris Lord-Alge, who has decades of experience and a wealth of sought-after equipment, was able to clearly assign one of his four 1176 Blue Stripe units to this category. This particular unit, called “Bluey,” has a special mojo that shines on vocal tracks like no other. Chris wanted more channels of this golden device and turned to the guys who know mods best – the team at Black Lion Audio! Intrigued by Chris’ praise for the unit, lead developer Jesus Ortiz hopped on a plane from Chicago to L.A. to find out what made this Blue Stripe so unique. He found a series of modifications made to the unit over the years to keep it running, which miraculously resulted in a unique 1176! BLA painstakingly analyzed the unit and worked with Chris Lorde-Alge to rebuild the monster that is now known as the new Black Lion Audio “Bluey”!
