Description: Effect - Symetrix 525 Compressor/Limiter
The 525 Gated Compressor/Limiter utilizes Symetrix' program-controlled interactive dynamic range processing technique, which combines the best attributes of both compressor/limiters and expander/gates. "Program-controlled" means the 525 analyzes incoming signals, then adjusts its attack and release times to match the transient characteristics of those signals. This type of dynamic range processing makes the 525 an ideal controller for live sound reinforcement, vocal processing, video post production, audio and video duplicating, paging system control, and general purpose gain control -- any situation where "invisible" control of wide ranging levels is needed. Levels are kept in check by the compressor/limiter, which responds quickly to transients and gently to smaller level changes. The expander/gate prevents pumping, eliminates leakage from headphones, reduces room ambience, and always maintains the best possbile signal-to-noise ratio. Because the compressor/limiter and the expander/gate are interactive, the 525 always provides an appropriate response while providing automatic control over a wide range of input levels. The unit is rack-mountable in one space. It has balanced and unbalanced inputs using 1/4" tip-ring-sleeve phone plugs. Exc. condition.
