The Joemeek SC2.2 is a compressor - limiter - gate in the form of a rack mountable piece of outboard gear. It is an analog piece of equipment and it has both XLR microphone inputs and outputs and has 1/4 inch inputs and outputs. This is handy because I can either plug my instrument direct or plug a microphone into it before I send it to my audio interface.
The configuration of the Joemeek SC2.2 is straightforward and is your basic compressor. It is easy to get a good sound out of it and is capable of getting a couple of different types of sounds out of it - ranging from a light compression sound to really squishing the signal, and it is also a sufficient gate. It all depends on what you'd like to do with it. The manual is pretty complete and was helpful when setting it up with my configuration.
The sound quality of the Joemeek SC2.2 is a little bit above average in my opinion. While its pretty clean, the sound won't blow you away. It is a basic compressor and is definitely helpful to have a few of them around for recording drums if you like to track with compression. I have used this on snare drum, kick drum, guitars, and bass guitar. I like it a lot on drums, as it will fatten up your signal a bit and is clean. Its faults I think come in the that it sometimes gets too tinny, but if you use it in the right situations, it usually is reliable and sounds good.
I've been using the Joemeek SC2.2 for a few years. They are a real cheap option for the home studio owner who wants a few compressors to use for tracking. They sound good and are easy to use, while being quite well built and reliable in terms of it not breaking down. I like this model better than the Joemeek SC2.2 , but they are pretty similar in nature, I just think that the Joemeek SC2.2 sounds better and cleaner, and is probably worth the difference in price. I definitely recommend those home studio owners on a budget to check out the Joemeek SC2.2 as a reliable option for using compression.
Stereo optical compressor with dclenchement in MS (roughly, the indoor, the compressor no longer traditional in Stereo is to say left / right but in the middle / cts). This particular feature allows a perfect stability of the image strophonique output compression, unlike compressors we are now and linkent their left and right channels.
It's simple trs. It is the old RULES is to say with a level of rather than a threshold. The Bonton are large, the VU nitre is huge and super readable. No frills but everything is very well pens and Fidler mind Joe Meek (man this time) and who said If it's sound right, it is Right. Basically, custom settings are in milliseconds, but other dB of graduations 1 11. We use this machine with his ears and not by calculating, which is great as a.
Any price range combined is the best compressor I've ever used. And yet, I dj boss on the Tube Tech, the Avalon, the Empirical Labs (very good also), the Drawmer, DBX's (low and high end), the Focusrite, the Bellari, the Trident, Amek ... And so on. Joemeek but is really the one that I like the most (as many who have tried it. Gnial It has can do anything. Low cuts are hyper music, has left by the peaks, but a ring and leveled beautifully. For high compressions is carrment Rock n 'Roll, and just as musical, open, warm and pchu.
Usually, optical compressor pump attrocement (There's that see the new Joemeek), but it is always hyper music. Even with an acoustic guitar sound was perfect, while most other optical compressors donnnent rsulats the limit of the operator.
I use it on a bunch of guitars of all types, voice, bass, drums and various percussion instruments, and mix, and impossible to take into default.
I have never seen a compressor as versatile. Typically, compressors strong personality only work on a number of sources restrient, but the work has on everything.
Perfection (including at the stro).
As I said above, I consider it a must.
It has performance comparable machines of 4000 or 5000 euros and is probably more versatile. We understand why these aisment compressors have become cult and still market research of OCCAZ.
Too bad the new Joemeek products are not of this level.
