Powerful Compression that's Easy to Use!
The Daking Comp 500 packs massive compression and limiting capability into a simple 500 Series rack compatible module. This VCA compressor/limiter delivers many of the benefits typically associated with high-end FET circuitry, providing you with satisfying warm and subtle smoothness that leaves the basic nature of your sound intact while controlling its dynamics. Unlike typical VCA compressors which have RMS detectors, feed forward circuits, and an IC opamp for gain, the Comp 500 uses a unique peak detector, feedback sensing circuit and a Class A gain amplifier so it sounds like famous world class compressors, yet in a 500-series package.
To put it mildly, the Comp 500 is the kind of simple, easy-to-use compressor you can just as easily put to work tracking, mixing, or in your live sound rig. Your custom compression rig starts with a rack full of Daking Comp 500 compressors from Sweetwater!
You Can't Put a Price Tag on Simplicity Like This!
Easily the most valuable feature you'll find when you put the Daking Comp 500 through its paces is its sheer simplicity. One look over its controls tells the whole story. You've got compression amount, which more or less sets the compression threshold. Turn it up, more compression, turn it down, you get less. That lets you focus on listening to the results of your processing, and not obsessing about the numbers. After that, it's just a matter of selecting your Comp 500's ratio (4:1 comp, 20+:1 limit) and attack and release speeds (fast or slow) before setting the output gain. That's really all the control you need. And by keeping it so simple, you can dial in the perfect compression with your Daking Comp 500 in a matter of seconds, freeing up your precious studio time for other tasks.Daking Comp 500 Compressor/Limiter Features:
