The Audio Logic MT66 Compressor is a dynamic two-channel with a gate and a Link option to operate in stereo.
Inputs and outputs 1 / 4 and coaxial (RCA) - yes, yes, no XLR -
Fits in a 1U rack space.
Relatively easy to use.
It thickens here. To have had two in my possession (for a short time - I got rid of the two for 50 euros on eBay), the compressor does not just deserve the title of studio compressor. Even with minimal compression, the signal is overwritten in a very low noise. Gate way too harsh, almost hysterically. The connection is done in 1 / 4 Unbalanced consumer level (-10dB). To add to the frustration, the MT66 adds incredible noise of the signal. Even with the gate activated.
For use on an RCA home theater - not in a studio, as "home" would it -.
We love to see him, you hate it by plugging it. NOT N'achtez this compressor, despite its low price (justified)
What are the effects, types of effects available?
- Analog compressor, with controls traditional 19-inch rack
- Noise Gate simplified with only one threshold setting
- Can be coupled in stereo
- Insert jack sockets on the back of the unit allowing the connection of an equalizer (to make a goddess, for example).
- Input and output TRS and RCA + 4db-10db.
The general configuration is simple?
This device is very classic in its operation. Its controls are those that are found on all modern compressor.
Adjusting the noise gate with only command line is not always very useful, except percussion type sounds. Compressor controls however are complete and can cope with almost any situation. However, this requires some experience to find the right dosages. This unit does not have the automatic encountered on compressors such as Behringer Autocom. This can confuse beginners.
The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
Subject to master the use of a traditional compressor, this unit is very effective on voice, bass guitar, drums, etc. ...
I use this compressor for almost 19 years (already!). He has always given me satisfaction. Contrary to previous opinion, it will find its place in any professional audio installation "hardware" in the studio and live sound. Naturally, one should not compare it to a super high-end gear like the optical tube compressor manufactured by hand in ten numbered then modeled to be sold plugin! But it will do its job properly for that will tame it.
