Control Dynamics with Classic VCA Compression

Chameleon Labs brings back classic VCA compression with their 7730 stereo compressor. This 1U VCA compressor starts off with a +20/-30dB gain stage and a variable 60-400Hz highpass filter, so you can fine-tune your input signal. In addition to the standard compression controls (attack, release, and ratio), the 7730 offers your choice of peak or RMS detection across a +/-15dB threshold range. There's also a Blend control for parallel processing. Selectable hard- or soft-knee compression plus sidechaining ensures you can contour your compression to perfection. And if you're an old-school gearhead like many of us here at Sweetwater, then you have to appreciate the dual VU meters, which can display input volume or gain reduction.

Chameleon Labs 7730 Stereo VCA Compressor Features:
  • A classic stereo VCA compressor packed in a simple 1U chassis
  • Ultra-low-noise +20/-30dB input gain stage lets you adjust your signal
  • Roll off lows with a 60-400Hz variable highpass filter
  • Standard attack, release, and 1.5:1-10:1 ratio dials offer familiar control
  • +/-15dB threshold range includes peak or RMS detection
  • Adjust your compression contour with hard- or soft-knee settings
  • Blend control for parallel processing lets you mix in unprocessed signal
  • Monitor input signal or gain reduction via twin VU meters
  • Adjust output levels with a -60dB to +20dB final gain stage
Get classic, ultra-clean VCA compression with a Chameleon Labs 7730!
