The IGS Audio TubeCore 500 is a 500 series  vari-mu compressor for tracking and mixing.

The IGS Audio Tubecore 500 is handmade and includes high-quality components throughout. JJ Tubes are calibrated individually and powered by 250V DC  for best performance. This means TubeCore 500 delivers all the rich unique sound of legendary vari-mu compressors. Besides Sowter and Carnhill transformers are also employed to ensure superior performance.

The TubeCore 500 will work wonders tracking vocals, drums, guitars or bass. The rich harmonics added by the tube will make any instrument shine during a mix.
