Radial Engineering's Komit is a new 500 series module compressor/limiter that is made up of analog components and will only fit in a 500 series rack. Radial is known for making DI's mostly, and I think that this is their first 500 series module, or at least it is the first that I've seen. It is also the only dynamic processor that I've seen that is made by Radial.
The configuration of the Radial Engineering Komit is easy to follow, especially if you're familiar with the make up of most compressors and/or limiters. The Komit consists of parameters for output, compression ratio, limiter (threshold), and a switch to choose between either a fast, medium, or slow to choose how quick the compression will hit it. It also has a dual VU that shows both gain reduction and output level.
The Radial Engineering Komit really has an overall awesome tone quality. I don't have too much experience with the Komit yet, but I have had the chance to use it a few times for tracking vocals. There is only one studio that I've ever worked out at that has had this, and it was quite recently added to the studio I believe. You can get some pretty different sounding compression and limiting sounds depending on how you set it, as the ratio setting makes a big difference from if it's on 1:1 or 10:1. It sounds great to hit something really hard with the Komit, but it's also good when it comes to being more subtle as well.
Being that the Radial Engineering Komit is a fairly new product, it's going to take some time for the word to spread about this nifty little compressor/limiter. While I wouldn't have expected Radial Engineering to come out with either a 500 series module or a compressor/limiter, so for me this product was definitely not something that I expected to see or use. The price is really reasonable as well, as you'll definitely save some money when compared to some of the more expensive 500 module compressors out there. All in all, the Komit is a very impressive piece of gear that I would imagine will only get more popular with time.
