The Award Nominated, CharterOak SCL-1 Discrete Compressor Limiter will provide a constant output level regardless of input level or frequency, without the familiar pumping and gasping effect that is inherent in most compressors and limiters. This can be attributed to the design of the circuit, which combines the features of waveform differentiation and integration. This allows for fast attack times without overcompensation and a release characteristic that is a function of dynamic range and average program level.
