Proven Analog Compression with Digital Sidechain Technology!

The PreSonus CL44 forges new technology ahead in four channel compressor-limiters! Pro features include variable threshold, ratio, attack release, high pass sidechain filter and compander. If you need quality compression and limiting but have a limited budget, the CL44 is for you! PreSonus CL44 Compressor/Limiter at a Glance:

  • 4-channel design with sidechain capability on every channel
  • Ideal combination of analog and digital technology in one box
  • Frequency-dependent high pass sidechain filter for smooth, natural sounding compression
  • Built-in compander for automatic gain control

Four independent channels! Many of our customers have been waiting for this kind of Presonus quality compression in a four-channel unit. The CL44 has FOUR channels of top-quality compression and limiting in a single rack space. But none of this would mean anything if this thing didn't sound awesome. The CL44 Four Channel Compressor/Limiter combines PreSonus' proven analog circuitry with the latest in DSP sidechain technology. Analog compression plus digital DSP The CL44's high pass filter for the sidechain operates completely in the digital domain from 20Hz to 20kHz. This filter is useful in eliminating sibilance and helping to control pumping of the compressor often caused by low frequency information. This frequency dependent filter allows you to tailor the frequency range of the compressor. The CL44's compander circuit allows for AGC (Automatic Gain Control) which boosts the signal when it falls below the desired threshold. A special 'optical' mode emulates vintage optical limiters. Adjacent channels are stereo linkable. A separate threshold for the limiter allows you to set a peak level independent of the compressor. Every channel has its own external sidechain insert. PreSonus CL44 Compressor/Limiter Features:

  • Fully featured compressor with variable attack, release, ratio and threshold
  • Frequency dependent high pass filter
  • Independent limiter
  • Compander works simultaneously to give maximum dynamic control
  • Balanced XLR and unbalanced connections via 1/4" TRS
  • 1/4" TRS compressor sidechain
  • 10 segment LED for gain reduction

The PreSonus CL44 Compressor/Limiter: A true audio value!
