The Samson SA-S-ComPlus is a highly adaptable stereo compressor/limiter in an efficient single rackspace design.
The S com plus is a highly adaptable stereo compressor/limiter in an efficient single rackspace design. It is intended for situations where extra flexibility is required to optimize signal levels. It delivers essential control along with simplicity of operation. S com plus's comprehensive and wide-ranging controls provide extensive manipulation of audio dynamics, even in the most complex situations.
Each channel features a wide range of variable control. A feature-rich Compressor section includes variable Threshold, Ratio, Attack and Release controls. Samson's SKD (Smart Knee Detector) circuit dynamically adjusts the compression curve to ensure a musical result. Our exclusive AEG (Auto Envelope Generator) function simplifies optimum settings by constantly analyzing the audio input and automatically adjusting the attack and release parameters based on the changing level. Key Inputs and Outputs are included for externally processing the control voltage.
The Expander/Gate features a variable threshold level and switchable release time (fast or slow). The Gate switch changes the downward expander ratio from "light" to "hard" gating for control ranging from subtle to an obvious effect. A dedicated Peak/Limiter with variable control provides protection against peak and overload independently of the compressor. When used in combination with the Compressor the Peak/Limiter offers even more precise control over dynamic levels.
A functional De-esser improves audio quality by removing "S" from vocals and sibilance from overly bright signal sources such as cymbals. The Enhancer switch engages the EFR (Enhanced Frequency Recovery) circuit, which restores high frequencies that are sometimes diminished by heavy compression. Extensive metering includes Input/Output, Gain Reduction, De-esser Level, Gate Open/Close and Limit.

Comments about Samson S ComPlus 2 Channel Compressor:
I own other Samson gear, like their monitor controller and the matching headphone amp, and have had good results, so I figured this would be a safe bet too.
I got this for my church because the compressor/limiter for the lead vocalist and the compressor/de-esser for our pastor both kicked the bucket. Being on a budget, we needed something that wasn't too expensive, but could still keep two voices in check; this unit does the job well!
The adjustable expander/gate is a tad touchy for vocals; Overall it seems better suited for drums. The automatic mode for attack/release is absolutely USELESS, so go manual on it for best results. Also, the enhancer isn't too useful for singers, as it colors the sound far too much, but it works great for spoken word. The de-esser works well too, and it's nice to have the adjustment, rather than just an on-off switch like some other compressors.
As far as non-percussion instruments, I think your money is better spent elsewhere. This isn't a very transparent compressor, and I feel it ate away at the tone too much when I tested it on guitar, bass, and piano.
Overall, I'm pleased with the S-Com Plus; It meets our needs, and the price is great. Samson hasn't let me down yet!
