Tube compressor with true bypass.
The innovative transformerless input circuit yields clarity while the Lundahl output transformer adds character. The extreme low output impedance with its high current design allows even the most difficult and complex loads to be driven without sonic impact.
A wet (compressed) and dry (uncompressed) mixer further enhances the flexibility of the F602 Tube Compressor. A true hard bypass (which also works if the unit is powered down) is implemented as well as a standby switch, which permits shutting down the tube circuitry if the F602 is not in use while the rack is still powered, therefore extending the tube life cycle.
Up to ten units can be linked together to form a true multichannel compressor. The engineer can easily change the compression characteristics by tuning threshold, ratio, attack and release times as well as selecting an automatic release mode, which adjusts the release time dynamically according to the source material and input level.
The main compression behavior can be switched between hard- and soft-knee. Up to 20dB of make-up gain is provided to compensate for the gain reduction. The VU meter is selectable between gain reduction and output level. A clip LED indicates output levels above +24dBu. The whole package is delivered a single space API 500 series form factor. Due to the high powerconsumption of about 8W, not all lunch-boxes and racks are suitable for this module. Of course, Fredenstein boxes and racks are well equipped to handle these loads.
Variable and versatile compression with wet/dry mixer.
