The Aphex Aural Exciter is a legendary piece of gear in the studio community. It's a fantastic way to shape sounds without boosting actual gain, making it ideal for having a clean mix. This makes it a great unit for mastering, or adding to a mix bus. The added Big Bottom really opens up a lot of extra uses with this unit. Great for adding to floor toms, kick or even bass guitar. It's also a neat effect to put in the FX loop of a guitar amp. You can really thicken up a combo amp or just any amp that sounds too "boxy".
This unit is dated 1995, and is still in great working condition. It's missing a couple screws from the front panel, but our tech went through it and made sure nobody had tampered with it, and it was deemed to be stock. There's some to-be-expected wear on the unit, but it functions great, with no scratchiness in the pots, and the buttons engage and disengage as if they were new.
The power supply is not included, but it's worth mentioning these units run fine off an 18VAC power supply.
