G1176LN test

I calibrated the G1176LN unit yesterday night and performed my first function test, compressing some tracks in Cubase.
It works REALLY well, especially with some tracks with accoustic guitar we recorded with my band recently 😀

What remains is to mount the PCB and toroid transforme. I'm also waiting for a power resistor and replacement lamp for the VU-meter. I managed to f**k up and not take in consideration that the VU Lamp output on the PCB puts out ~35VDC and not 12V the lamp is rated for... oh well, you learn as you go...

My first test of the unit after calibration
