FMR Audio RNC1773 Really Nice Compressor

Model: RNC 1773   |    Mpn: RNC 1773   |    Ean: 4560482822140   |    PartNumber: RNC 1773   |   Asin: B00ATXJLG2

FMR Audio is headed by Mark and Beth McQuilken, a married couple who started out their careers as high-tech design consultants for companies like Motorola, RCA and Lockheed Martin among others. Their rise to fame in the professional audio world began in 1997 with the birth of their first commercially available product, the famous and revered RNC1773better known as The Really Nice Compressor. Let s discuss...The FMR RNC1773 is a high fidelity stereo compressor housed in a sturdy metal 1/3rd rack space enclosure. It also operates in mono (not dual mono). Employing a marriage of cleverly employed digital circuitry and top notch analog components, its sound is virtually invisible as it compresses your signal with minimal artifacts and delivers a clean tonal character. There are 2 modes of operation in the RNC, normal and SuperNice. Think of the SuperNice mode as what you might achieve using multiple compression units chained together in series, each one subtly compressing the signal until you have complete control of the sound. Due to each unit doing its job in little increments, no one unit is over-worked so to speak resulting in smooth, undetectable, compressed audio, free of nasty compression artifacts and the sometimes dreaded pumping effect. You cant hear the compression at work as its truly transparent, hence the SuperNice name. This mode does an amazing job of emulating those principals making the RNC an incredibly versatile compressor at any price.The FMR RNC1773 has an 8-segment LED meter that gives you precise reading of the goings ons. The 5 rotary controls offer precision compression control (in normal mode) and the enclosure is made of quality aluminum and metal with resilient plastic knobs. The overall look of the FMR RNC1773 is decidedly home-grown but its actually built tough and sturdy right here (Texas, that is) in the good old U.S. of A.!So youd think all this wonderment in a box would have you mortgaging the house and selling the kids, but the best n

dbx 560A Compact, Professional Compressor/Limiter

Model: 560A   |    Mpn: 560A   |    Ean: 0691991000638   |    PartNumber: 560A   |   Asin: B00U2L0Q2Y

The dbx 560A Compressor/Limiter offers legendary VCA-based compression in the increasingly popular 500 Series format. dbx has a much-heralded history with modular processors dating back to our 900 Series and the 560A continues that tradition. Featuring the same switch-selectable Over Easy and Hard Knee compression curves as our industry-standard dbx 160A rack mount processor, the dbx 560A will be your new workhorse compressor! With extremely wide-ranging threshold, ratio and output controls and true RMS level detection providing the most natural-sounding dynamics processing available, the 560A will provide punch to drums, bass, vocals, almost anything! It's also versatile enough to go from subtle compression to "brick wall" peak limiting. Choose low ratios and Over Easy compression to expertly smooth out fluctuating vocal and instrumental levels, or use the 560A's Hard Knee compression and high ratios for bombproof protection against overload distortion in digital recording, P.A. systems and broadcast signals. The 560A's 19-segment, switchable Input/output LEDs and 12-segment Gain Reduction LEDs provide precise analysis at a glance. And, the dbx 560A's unique "INFINITY +" inverse-compression mode actually decreases the audio output level below unity gain when the input exceeds threshold, a real lifesaver for correcting overbearing vocal choruses and controlling runaway mix levels. Load up your 500 Series rack with some dbx 560A Compressor/Limiters and go to work!

Features

  • Over Easy or classic hard knee compression with dB's ultra-musical program dependent attack and release times
  • Compression ratio variable from 1:1 through infinity: 1 to -1:1
  • Precise RMS gain reduction and input/output meter displays with calibration control for different operating levels
  • True RMS level detection
  • Exclusive Infinity+ compression using negative ratios

FMR Audio RNLA 7239 Really Nice Levelling Amplifier Stereo Compressor

Model: RNLA 7239   |    Mpn: RNLA 7239   |    Ean: 4560482822164   |    PartNumber: RNLA 7239   |   Asin: B00ATXJMCK

FMR Audio is headed by Mark and Beth McQuilken, a married couple who started out their careers as high-tech design consultants for companies like Motorola, RCA and Lockheed Martin among others. Their rise to fame in the professional audio world began in 1997 with the birth of their first commercially available product the famous and revered RNC1773better known as The Really Nice Compressor. The RNC1773 changed the game big time in the compression field as it was the first high-end piece of studio gear that was actually priced within reach to all audio enthusiasts at all levels.In 2005, a new child was born to the McQuilkens, the FMR RNLA 7239 (Really Nice Leveling Amp).The FMR RNLA is a 1/3rd rack space stereo compressor that can also be used in mono (not dual mono). It delivers a thick and delightful sonic signature, harking back to leveling amps of days gone by. Many engineers refer to this as coloring the sound while others use the phrase gobs of gooey character. That is the intention here as this type of coloring, if you will, lends itself superbly to vocals, guitars, bass, strings, or just about anything that could benefit from a little magical mojo.The look of the FMR RNLA 7239 is decidedly home-grown but its actually built tough and sturdy right here (Texas, that is) in the good old U.S. of A.! The encasement is tough aluminum, and its bright red tough plastic knobs are easily grabbable, large enough so you can make adjustments without upsetting the other knobs surrounding it. Like the RNC 1773, the RNLA 7239 has unbalanced inputs that also double as Tip-Ring-Sleeve (TRS) inserts to mate with popular mixer and equipment inserts. This allows you to connect, using only a single TRS-to-TRS cable per channel, an RNLA s channel (in out) with a single cable to a mixer or other compatible device (such as FMRs Really Nice Preampask your Sam Ash sales associate about this great value in a preamp). The outputs are balanced (unlike the RNC) so hooking up balanced line

Samson S-com plus Stereo Compressor/Limiter

Model: S-com plus   |    Mpn: SA-SCOMPLUS   |    Ean: 0809164001355   |    PartNumber: SA-SCOMPLUS   |   Asin: B0002ORP98

The S com plus is a highly adaptable stereo compressor/limiter in an efficient single Rackspace design. It is intended for situations where extra flexibility is required to optimize signal levels. It delivers essential control along with simplicity of operation. S com plus's comprehensive and wide-ranging controls provide extensive manipulation of audio dynamics, even in the most complex situations. Each channel features a wide range of variable control. A feature-rich Compressor section includes variable Threshold, Ratio, Attack and Release controls. Samson's SKD (Smart Knee Detector) circuit dynamically adjusts the compression curve to ensure a musical result. Our exclusive AEG (Auto Envelope Generator) function simplifies optimum settings by constantly analyzing the audio input and automatically adjusting the attack and release parameters based on the changing level. Key Inputs and Outputs are included for externally processing the control voltage. The Expander/Gate features a variable threshold level and switchable release time (fast or slow). The Gate switch changes the downward expander ratio from "light" to "hard" gating for control ranging from subtle to an obvious effect. A dedicated Peak/Limiter with variable control provides protection against peak and overload independently of the compressor. When used in combination with the Compressor the Peak/Limiter offers even more precise control over dynamic levels. A functional De-esser improves audio quality by removing "S" from vocals and sibilance from overly bright signal sources such as cymbals. The Enhancer switch engages the EFR (Enhanced Frequency Recovery) circuit, which restores high frequencies that are sometimes diminished by heavy compression. Extensive metering includes Input/Output, Gain Reduction, De-esser Level, Gate Open/Close and Limit.

Features

  • Compressor/Limiter, Expander/Gate, De-Esser with Peak Limiter, Expander/Gate with Variable Trigger Control and Switchable Fast/Slow Release
  • Servo Balanced Inputs and Outputs on XLR and 1/4 Connectors, Circuit Switches from Soft to Hard Knee Based on the Level of Input Signal Applied
  • Peak Limiter with Independent Threshold Control and Peak LED
  • Adjustable De-Esser with independent LED Meter for Reducing Sibilance
  • Advanced Circuit Design Utilizing Low Noise Operational Amplifiers and High Quality VCA's, SKD (Smart Knee Detector), AEG (Auto Envelope Generator)
