an industry standard dual channel compressor / limiter / de-esser.
Front panel adjustments:
De-eser: de-ess, frequency.
compressor: threshold, ratio, attack, release, gain.
Limiter: peak limit.
Illuminated in/out switches, meters, side-chain monitor.
Security Panel For applications which require a recessed blank front panel unit, a security cover kit is available to convert the DPR402 into a fully tamper-proof rack mounting unit. All front panel controls are then hidden behind a blank steel panel.
Output Balancing A separate output balancing unit is available to provide full transformer balanced and floating output sends to drive 600 ohm loads.
Frequency contouring The DPR402 has internal insertion points on the control and subtract side-chains so that fixed filter networks can be fitted giving users any standard form of emphasised contouring to the compressor action. This does not interfere with the normal de-essing functions.
