Compressor / limiter lights in 19 '(2 units). Connections and XLR jacks on symtrique's. (Which I have a problem to place an insert, unlike other dynamic processors symtriques I possde.)


It's not that simple and legends are not talking trs. (Contour ???). The manual is not clear but does his best. This type of gear shade sounds, it's fine. It is not so easy matriser. But I think the manufacturer would not have done better.


Since I, my mixes sound much better. This is a must. It compresses and limits without ringing "free radio".


I for 1 year. Which compresses the Manir is fantastic, but do not ask him to do what a compressor transistors. It does not rductions as important as my 166, but it ends on its ... Super.

That says it all at this level, compressor limiter double tube, 19 "2U, jack and XLR balanced +4 dBu to -10 selector for each I / O to work with Sidechain EQ using a frequency detector. It is sturdy and seriously.


Setting it seems really simple, yet no major user of high-end stuff (but passionate course), an adaptation Pette I was needed and roll ca ... There are a lot of the characteristics of the compressor of the same class with a compression hardware and software (over easy), attack and release times in auto mode (I used to catch votes), the gain reduction of the compression on VU meter etc. ... I like the LED indicators that indicate the area where you are, below the treshold green, orange for the slope of the soft mode "over easy", red for the compression zone. All of this is that the calibration is established easily.


Top quality, saturation of the lamps is adjustable and can be given a good color tone. I use it to catch votes (rap) with an SE electronics 2200A, and for the treatment of audio mix or other samples. In bypassing we realize that change is quite striking, I love.


That's 4 months or so I use it.

What I like most, its geule, sound and usability, the notched knobs ideal for lying on the paper rélages, LED indicators compression sound.

At least tell us very quickly, the brushed aluminum facade is not aluminum, but PVC (but still brushed hi hi). But I keep the 10

Not tried many models, Joemeek only.

Money, the mine used unbeatable price (yes but I would not say anything), it would be almost nine € 2000 (or the equivalent in francs it seems to me), I saw it on an English site still has nine just over € 1,400. A coherent report, rather interesting opportunity. Voila Voila!
