Better compression on all sources in the studio.

The Daking COMP II is a handmade compressor/limiter designed to be easy to use and sound like much more expensive comp/limiters.  Built right here in the USA, it offers bettersounding compression on all kinds of sources in the studio.  Whether in the hands   of a highlyexperienced engineer who needs fast workflow,  or a novice who is not sure how to best set up a compressor, the COMP II gives professional results without a big learning curve.With big old-style analog meters and a simple setup, the COMP II is easy to understand andeasy to use.  Designed carefully by Geoff Daking and Dave Thibodeau to behave well on a variety of real in-studio applications, it may challenge your notions of how good a two-knobcompressor can be.

The two channel, electronically balanced COMP II, can operate in dual mono or stereo linkedmode for a beautiful stereo image. In dual mono it acts like two independent monocompressors for use on two different - perhaps unrelated - sources. There is no master channelin stereo mode. Each channel retains its independent control.


  • Compensates for any gain lost in compression. For serious rock stars, note theoutput goes to 11!
  • The Daking Comp II is a complex design that employs a unique method of gain reduction using a VCA like a FET. This maintains the unique Daking sound of our legacycompressors. Unlike most VCA designs, ours uses feedback gain reduction, a peak detector andan all-discrete Class A follower.
  • The outboard power supply makes sure this unit is quiet and usable around the world on anyvoltage. Switches are illuminated, making it easy to see what’s “on” in a dark room.
  • The rearpanel offers XLR electronically balanced inputs and electronically balanced XLR/¼” TRS outputs.Purely analog, it’s so easy to get a sound you love. This compressor may easily become your favorite.

For professional level limiting and compression without the price tag. Order today.
