A compact, full-featured compressor for the desktop.
A full-featured Stereo Compressor/Limiter with 16 settings. There are fifteen presets and a manual mode for more critical adjustments when required. The C-com 16's controls include variable threshold, ratio, attack, decay, release and output level. An enhancer provides the added character that is lost under heavy compression. Key output/input for outboard triggering or external filtering of the key signal. A 6-segment LED gain reduction meter and a 6-segment LED input/output meter provides visual monitoring of the circuit’s effect.
Full featured, stereo dynamics processor with 15 Pre-sets covering a full range of typical compression jobs for live sound and recording.
User programmable MANUAL mode with variable control of SENSITIVITY, ATTACK, RATIO, RELEASE and OUTPUT.
Selecting a pre-set PROGRAM is easy by using the 16-position, rotary PROGRAM selection control and the dual color LED’s with legends indicating the selected dynamics program.
SKD (Smart Knee Detector) switches from soft to hard knee based on the level of input signal.
AEG (Automatic Envelope Generator) mode constantly adjusts the Compressor’s Attack and Release times based on input signal. Manual adjustment of Attack and Release time is also facilitated.
Enhancer circuit to help restore high frequencies that are sometimes lost as a result of heavy gain reduction.
6 Segment LED Input/Output Meter, plus 6 Segment LED Gain Reduction Meter.
External KEY insert point provides for external processing of the side chain signal.
High quality variable resistors provide smooth control.
Easy to read and operate LED, backlit push switches.
+4 and –10dBu operating levels can be selected using the OUTPUT LEVEL switch.
Advanced electronics incorporating high quality VCA’s and low noise op-amps providing a transparent signal path.
Oversized, rubber bumpers with tilting feet allow several Samson C class units to be stacked and tilted in an ergonomically correct operating position.
EIA standard 19” rack mounting using the optional CRK2 rack-mount kit.
The stylish bead blasted, electric blue anodized front panel is as easy to read as it is to look at.
This unit is so easy to use. The presets are great for getting a quick compression setting and they really sound good as designed. On top of that this can be used manually too. I really like this compressor.
"Excellent compressor for anyone looking for great quality and an excellent price... The presets are awesome, anything you could possibly need, I've never had to manually adjust a setting at all... perfect for people with limited knowledge of compression."
