TransAudio Daking FET3 Dual-Channel Limiter

TransAudio Group has announced the introduction of the Daking FET3, a new dual-channel limiter incorporating Class A discrete compressor circuitry and gain stages that is built in the U.S. by Geoffrey Daking.

The Daking FET3 design is said to utilize the same audio path and detector circuits as the FET II limiter. The FET3 adds new variable high-pass filters — from 0 to 200 Hz — at the detector stage to improve and customize the behavior of each limiter channel, TAG says. Signal content below the user set HPF frequency will not trigger the limiter, a design feature said to be extremely beneficial in fine-tuning limiter behavior on bass-heavy material, for example.

The FET3, which is essentially two independent limiters in a single 2RU unit, uses audio summing for stereo linking. The FET3 stereo link is variable from 0 to 100%, which allows the operation of each limiter channel to be tied together to a greater or lesser degree.

All FET3 front panel controls are variable rotary pots, which provide the ability to fine-tune the behavior of the unit in the studio. The FET II will continue to be produced for users, such as mastering engineers, who prefer the repeatability of switches.

Inputs and outputs are electronically balanced through the inclusion of a new design in differential amps. The common mode rejection in the FET3 is equal to that of the FET II, TransAudio Group says. The unit offers an output level of +24 dB. The unit, which is RoHS compliant, provides storage in the back panel for the external power supply.
