Tweakable Compression with Classic Tube Warmth!
Crane Song's Falcon 500 Series compressor combines vintage tube warmth with modern flexibility. Packed into its streamlined front panel are controls for attack and release speeds, compression and limiting, and even compression coloration, plus there's a handy backlit VU meter onboard. Dialing in the compressor itself is easy thanks to simple gain and threshold controls, and it's equipped with dual signal paths plus a wet/dry mix knob. The Falcon makes parallel compression totally painless. What's more, you can easily link multiple Crane Song Falcons together for full surround sound compression.

To give the Falcon an extra-wide tonal range, Crane Song designed it with a special feedback control switch. This toggle lets you select whether or not the Falcon uses negative feedback as part of its compression, allowing you to choose from a more highly colored vintage sound or a cleaner, modern tone.Parallel compression made easy
Parallel compression lets you achieve incredible sonic loudness without sacrificing natural dynamics of your signal, and the Crane Song Falcon makes it incredibly easy with its dual signal paths and wet/dry mix knob. Use the Falcon compressor to crush the living daylights out of your kick or squash the heck out of your guitars, and then mix in enough of the dry signal to add life back into your sound.Link up for stereo and surround mixes
With the Falcon's onboard link function, compressing stereo or even full 5.1 surround sound mixes is incredibly easy. Just link up to six Crane Song Falcon compressors together and set everything aside from the wet/dry mix and makeup gain all from a single unit. Talk about a timesaver!
