A phase invert button reverses the polarity of the microphone input. The compressor features an adjustable threshold between -20 and +10 with a fixed ratio of 1:2 and an adjustable time attack and release time constant from standard to fast via an internal jumper. A second internal jumper allows the compressor to be assigned to the DI chain. The variphase button and phase sweep knob allow you to incrementally adjust the phase angle of the two sources for aligning sources such as overhead and drum mics or the direct and amplified signals from a bass guitar and bass cabinet. The middle blend button allows you to mix the DI and Mic signals together, while the silk button adds nostalgic warmth and presence to both outputs.
The back of the unit features an XLR-3F mic input, a 1/4 mic output, a XLR-3F line ouptut, a +48V phantom power switch, a ground lift switch, and a 12 VDC power button. Used as a 2-channel device, a lead singer and guitar player can take the studio quality of the channel wherever they go, using the DPC for a Vocal mic pre and compressor, as well as a separate DI preamplifier. To achieve this, the blend control should be selected as fully DI (blend off), and an internal jumper can be selected to apply the compressor to the mic pre signal. When engaged, Silk mode would affect both vocal and guitar tracks, and the HPF control would affect only the mic path. Using two transformer coupled outputs, offers separate line outputs for the DI/Blend and mic signals.Using the blend control allows the vocal microphone preamplifier with compressor (via an internal jumper) and the direct box preamplifier signals to be blended together. Allows you to phase align, combine, and compress direct and amplified signals together while using the blend control to achieve the desired tonal balance and the variphase control to minimize or extenuate phase cancellations between the two signals.
Using technology from a light dependent resister design, the opto-coupler compressor features a single threshold control with auto make up gain, a fixed 2:1 compression ratio, and the option to change the time constant from standard to fast via an internal jumper. Allows you to adjust the phase incrementally, which is useful any time two signals derived from the same source are combined such as for aligning overhead and drum mics or the direct and amplifier outputs of a bass guitar and cabinet. Provides gain control from 0 to 66 dB to restore the apparent program level. Provides DI gain control from 0 to 30 dB. Accepts balanced or unbalanced Hi-z input for instruments.
Attenuates signals below 80 Hz by 12 dB/octave for getting rid of building rumble and other environmental noise. Provides 48V phantom power to microphones.Reverses the polarity of the microphone input. Reduces gain at a controlled 2:1 ratio with attack and release time constants set to standard or fast depending on the internal jumper setting. Denote signal presence and clipping on both DI and mic signals as well as compressor activation.
Allows you to change the compressor from the mic channel to the di/blend channel and change the time constant from standard to fast.
