Better compression on all sources in the studio.

The Daking Comp II stereo VCA compressor is a handmade compressor/limiter designed to be easy to use and sound like much more expensive comp/limiters. Built in the USA, it offers better-sounding compression on all kinds of sources in the studio. Whether in the hands of a highly experienced 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 large, old-style analog meters and a simple setup, the Comp II is easy to understand and easy 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-knob compressor can be.

The two-channel, electronically balanced Comp II, can operate in dual mono or stereo linked mode 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 channel in stereo mode. Each channel retains its independent control.


  • All-analog design
  • Compensates for any gain lost in compression

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