A new little discrete circuit from our tech Paul Fargo gives these inputs an appropriate input impedance (150 kOhms) and provides about 40 dB of gain. The Equalizers are comprised of a low frequency shelf that can be switched to either 40 Hz or 80 Hz and a high frequency shelf that can be set for 8 KHz or 12 KHz.
These shelves are continuously variable from -10 dB to +10 dB of gain. Of course, the EQ can be completely switched out with the BYPASS switch making it easy to make a choice. The Limiters are the discrete transistor version of the Manley ELOP® Limiter (same as the Langevin stand-alone version). This type of limiter is superb for vocals and a wide range of instruments from basses and guitars to synths and room mics. When it comes to tracking and fast set-ups, the lack of a multitude of controls is a real feature.
You can simply set up the Threshold and Gain controls and expect that the limiter will do the right thing without a lot of tweaking. The Limiters have Threshold and (make-up) Gain controls, a Link switch for stereo and a pair of toggles that switch the VU meters to "Gain Reduction" or "Output Level". These are true stereo limiters without the usual problems of left/right matching common to other stereo opto based limiters. The back panel has XLR mic inputs paralleled with 1/4 TRS jacks that feed the mic pre stage. By popular request we have added separate 1/4" TRS micpre outputs which "normal" into the 1/4" TRS limiter inputs so they can be permanently wired into a patchbay.
Now there are "Direct Outputs" from the Mic Pre/EQ stage so one can indeed use the micpreamps and the Limiters as 4 separate sections. The main outputs are available as either transformerless balanced XLR or unbalanced 1/4 Tip-Sleeve jacks. 2U chassis is 19" x 3 1/2" x 10" and sports a billet 1/4" thick machined faceplate.
All the specs and numbers not mentioned specifically on this page are the same as the two stand-alone Langevin units elsewhere on this website. And dont forget to check out our website and see the rave reviews this Langevin DVC has scored in al l the magazines, including Electronic Musicians 2001 Editors Choice Award! Operating Mains Voltage changeable with power transformer changeover switch and fuse value change.
