Easy to Use Controls

Getting great sound is easy. SA-4000 puts all the essential compressor controls at your fingertips, along with a bypass switch for quick A/B comparisons.

Gives Your Mixes Punch, Power and Glue

Give you recordings punch, power, and depth. You'll notice your drums will sound bigger and punchier, electric guitars will have more body, pianos will have stronger transients, and your overall mix will sound glued together.

You'll find the compressor immediately glues your mix. It grabs a mix and 'finishes' it in a way that sounds like the original unit. Your low end will sound much tighter. You can also add punch, ranging from subtle to aggressive.

Use it on either a buss or your master chain. Whatever you choose to work on, you'll notice how the SA-4000 breathes energy into your sounds, taking them to a professional level. Make your mixes bigger, punchier, more powerful and glued together with the SA-4000.

It's a sound that can't be digitally replicated. Although there are many great digital emulations of analogue gear, something about the SA-4000 just cannot be replicated. Its sound is much smoother and can be pushed harder than the plug-in but still get great results.

The hardware version really opens up your mixes, something that cannot be offered in the box.

Get Famous Sound, at Half the Price

A recreation of the original, now more accessible to anyone. You'll get the exact classic sound of the original buss compressor that the SA-4000 is based on. Everything has been matched from the sonic characteristics, behaviour and frequency response of the original.

No compromise has been made in parts. Although this is much cheaper than the original, it still sounds the same. How is that possible? Stam Audio work on small margins to make professional gear affordable to anyone, so everyone who has a passion for it can afford it. Every component of every unit is premium quality and carefully selected to ensure their units match or even surpass the quality of high-end gear.

External Sidechain

Sidechain is possible. You can have the compressor be controlled by an external source such as a kick drum. Simply connect your external source and push the sidechain button, and you can have the SA-4000 react to an external source.
