The 925 is MIA Laboratories’ preferred main mix compressor.

It is designed using physical modelling principles, based around the classic ‘feed-back’ topology in hardware circuit-design.

The 925 side-chain detection stage is based on the analog envelope detector circuit.

Key design design features include:
