2-channel compressor/limiter, with noise gate and side chain input.
For protecting vocal microphones or dynamically played instruments against overload, for equalizing level fluctuations, for emphasising a signal and for transferring analog recordings onto digital sound carriers (volume maximisation due to dynamic compression).
For each channel:
- 8-step LED level display, switchable to input signal or output signal
- 12-step LED attenuation display
- LED indicators for a perfect adjustment of the threshold values for expander/gate, compressor and limiter
- Servo-balanced inputs and outputs
- Bypass switch (hard bypass)
- Switch for hard or soft compression (soft knee)
- Threshold control and rate control for expander/gate
- Threshold, ratio, attack, release and output level controls for compressor
- Automatic mode attack/release for compressor
- Side chain mode for controlling the compressor via an additional external audio signal, with monitor function and low cut filter, can be switched on additionally
- Threshold control for limiter
- Selector switch +4dBu/-10dBv for internal level adjustments
Parallel control of both channels possible via one operating panel (link/stereo mode)
