A tour-tested compressor with rich, complex studio sound.
The Summit Audio DCL-200 dual channel compressor/limiter personifies the grab-your-attention sound that only the very, very best quality tube compressor can give you. Based on a hybrid design, the DCL-200 combines the most desirable sonic characteristics of vacuum tubes with the airy top-end of solid state devices. DCL-200 circuitry incorporates selected 12AX7A vacuum tubes with highly reliable custom-made 990 op-amps in a transformerless signal path. You get an incredibly clean, precise sound, with the overtones and warmth of tube technology.
The Summit Audio DCL-200 has helped shape the sound of countless concerts and albums with its crisp yet smooth high-frequency response and the sweet low-mid and low tones you get from vacuum tubes. The DCL-200 is an extremely versatile and musical sounding compressor, a go-to component for tracking, mixing, and mastering. The Summit Audio DCL-200's compression curve and soft knee enhance your audio in a way that is far from sterile without ever sounding muddy or pinched.
