#InsideAbbeyRoad – The RS114 Limiter
Prior to the mid-1950s, automatic gain control devices were not to be found in Abbey Road's equipment collection. So, one of the most obvious improvements made in 1954 was a limiter which the Research Department developed, lead by Mike Batchelor. The RS114 valve limiter meant that artists could record without any restriction on the dynamic peaks and resulted in apparently louder records which permitted the backing to be brought further forward.
