This item is brand-new, completely un-used and un-opened in original box directly from the manufacturer, Tegeler. I purchased this directly from Tegeler in August 2023. I bought it as a gift, but no longer need it. I'd rather sell it to another U.S. studio/user than to send back to Tegeler in Germany. That way, I know my gift is getting used by someone. 

Listing as mint due to Reverb policies, as I am not an authorized seller of Tegeler products, but the product is new.

I opened it only to take pictures for this listing. Price listed is "brand new", but less than what you'd pay from Tegeler, as you do not need to pay for shipping or for customs (I've taken care of that). I will ship in original packaging, and Tegeler includes some of the most thoughtful packaging I've ever seen (see pictures). In my experience, they have excellent customer service, if you ever have questions. =) Description below is directly from Tegeler website. It is an excellent processor that will instantly enhance your mixes and make your job so much easier!

I will match or beat any verifiable new price from other sellers. The matched price must include shipping. For example, if you see a listing for $1550, but shipping is $200, I will not match the $1550, as I have already beaten it by offering free shipping. If you are comparing my price to an international seller, you must also consider import fees/taxes.

The Magnetimus 2 is a good candidate to be Tegeler’s most versatile device: it was first conceived, among other things, for processing transient-rich signals, such as drums, synthesizers, and acoustic guitars. It combines a modern, flexible VCA compressor with a downstream transient shaper. The result is a thick, rich sound, that helps integrate tracks better into the mix, similar to a tape recording.

Transient shaper

The transient shaper does not simply change the level of the transients, but, much like a tape machine, it rounds out the transients. The three different Flux Modes (Eisen, Kobalt, and Nickel) will run your signal through different transformers that emulate analogically the saturation of tapes made respectively of iron, cobalt, and nickel.

VCA compressor

In its first stage, you will find a powerful VCA compressor, with Threshold, Timing, Ratio, and Make-Up Gain controls. As its brother Creme does, the Magnetismus 2 can compress any stereo signal to ensure that the peaks are attenuated without compromising the dynamic range of your mix. More than anything, it can - and should - be used to “glue” mixes together.


The way the Flux Mode does that is by changing the time window for the processed transients slightly, causing the transient to be rounded more or less depending on the width of the transients. With the Intensity knob, you can control how much the transient shaping will change the original signal, enabling you to sculpt your envelope as finely as possible.

Transformer stage

The additional transformer at the output adds another bit of density, which will bring your modified up as much as you want, allowing that final touch of punch that a mix sometimes needs.

Using more extreme settings, the Magnetismus 2 can also be very helpful in creative sound design, by crushing or destructing audio signals; it can be used as a very straightforward drum smasher, for example.

Signal flow

Since the VCA compressor can also be used separately, the Magnetimus 2 is also suitable for processing sum signals, as a bus compressor, or even as a mastering compressor. Whatever sonic painting you want to create, the Magnetismus 2 is your perfect canvas.
