This is a two compressor hardknee voice, stereo and / or mono equipped with an expander and a limiter each.
19 inch 1U Rack format.
I have version XLR, 2 in, 2 out.
There are also connections for a side chain.
The general configuration is simple?
Simple, but it's still a compressor, you have to understand how this rule.
The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
Which instruments do you use?
I use it for vocals and rap with a preamp tube.
I very slightly compress the input. It allows me to reduce 2-3DB loud passages. (Report in the "P", the "D", the "F" ...). Attack and Release between 2 and 5.
Since I, the voices are brighter (without being aggressive), clearer, words are better understood. It was really feels.
Did you tried many other models before buying it? Not
What is so special that you love the most, least?
I like the vintage look, its lever-type switches that differ pushbuttons.
And especially I like are effective, it does the work I expected.
quality / price ratio very correct since I bought the 230th (2012) used. Roughly the same price as a dbx / alesis of occas. A bargain! It sells more expensive in general.
I think it was worth nine 800-900th.

Limiter / compressor / expander operates in two modes: dual mono or stereo mode, you have a select switch to couple the two Vac systems to stabilize the stereo image.
You also have the function with Peak Limiter switch course a connection that is the function after setting the output level and allows for additional protection.
At the rear, 4 XLR jacks for inputs and outputs, and 2 jacks COMP / EXP SIDE CHAIN S / R to a branch outside, or cascade additional devices.
Usage is relatively simple
The sound is still perfectly clear and audible breathless for normal use ie use rationale .. on the other hand for use rather "buggers" I mean with a relatively low THRESHOLD and RATIO more than 5 / 1 the compressor starts to pull a little tongue .. If you need such compression prefer him BSS DPR 402 DRAWNER much higher than for compression "destructive" dynamics ..
It is a very good compressor of a value for money really good, it is infinitely superior to any of those small compressors that are currently on the market (Behringer, Alesis, Samson ..). Furthermore you can find it used for not too expensive ..
