Studiomaster IDP1

The IDP1 was a late 80's Compressor, Limitor, Gate, Expander and Ducker - in other words dynamics, but with a modern (at the time) twist in it's interface and preset storgage - From the manual intro:

The Studiomaster IDP represents a new "intelligent" approach to dynamics processing. In a 1U 19" rack mount package, it combines features and effects only previously realised by the use of multiple effects units.

The basic concept of the Studiomaster IDP1 was to produce a versatile dynamics processor which allowed comprehensive MIDI control, without losing the ease with which a conventional dynamics processor may be set up. Thus the IDP1 has a very simple operating system.

Here is a list of the Factor Preset Programs:

  1. Bass Guitar 1 - General Bass Compressor
  2. Bass Guitar 2 - Punchy Bass Compressor
  3. Drum Comp 1 - General Drum Compressor
  4. Drum Comp 2 - Punchy Drum Compressor
  5. Guitar 1 - General Guitar Compressor
  6. Guitar 2 - Clean, Snappy Guitar
  7. Guitar 3 - Sustained Guitar
  8. Softener - Guitar Softener
  9. Vocal - Vocal Compressor
  10. Vox - Voice Operated Fader
  11. Expander 1 - Gentle Expander
  12. Expander 2 - Hard Expander
  13. Reverb 1 - Gated Reverb 1
  14. Reverb 2 - Gated Reverb 2
  15. Drum Gate - Drum Noise Gate
  16. Noise - General Noise Gate
  17. AM Comp - AM Radio Compressor
  18. FM Comp - FM Radio Compressor
  19. Classical - Stereo Classical Musical Compressor
  20. Limiter - Stereo Program Limiter
  21. Soft Comp - Stereo Soft Compressor
  22. Punchy - Stereo Punchy Compressor
  23. Fade In - MIDI Auto Fadein
  24. Fade Out - MIDI Auto Fadeout
  25. Velocity - MIDI Velocity Control
  26. PitchBend - MIDI Pitch Bend Fader
  27. MIDI Gate - MIDI Triggered Gating
  28. MIDI Duck - MIDI Triggered Ducking

Well, this was released around the time when digital was coming to the masses, and Studiomaster also released stuff like the excellent 16 channel 19" midi mute unit which could be plumbed in to a mixer's outs or whatever at the rack and controlled by midi note on/off control... all good stuff, this is an odd one tho..
