The EMI TG12413 Zener Limiter is the ultimate TG limiter issued in celebration of the 75th birthday of Abbey Road Studios. The Chandler TG12413 Zener Limiter is based on the vintage EMI circuits used to record The Beatles and Pink Floyd. It continues the tradition of EMI Limiters started in 1954 with the RS114 tube limiter and the 1968 RS168 Zener Limiter. The Zener Limiters were also part of the 1969 TG12345 console channel and the 1974 TG12413. This version borrows from the RS168 Zener Limiter and TG12345 console strip to make a new full featured and flexible unit for modern use.

The Zener Limiter adds features and flexibility to the powerful vintage-sounding TG limiter circuits. New controls include switchable input impedance for hard or soft driving of the unit, 11-position attack, 21-position release, side chain filtering, and Comp 1, Comp 2, and Limit settings.

All TG units require the PSU-1 Chandler Limited power supply. The PSU-1 has an internal switch for setting voltage to 120V or 220V (115V/230V).

Abbey Road Studios, EMI and TG and their associated logos are trade marks of EMI (IP) Limited.
