      Gem Audio Labs Compactor outfits your studio with extremely high-quality, pure analog compression and limiting. Its name says it all. Sporting fewer options and controls than Gem Audio Labs Preceptor models, the Compactor gives you a straight shot of real-deal dynamics processing: compression is fixed ratio at 2:1, and limiting is modeled on the holy grail Fairchild 660. Compactor's rugged 2U aluminum and steel chassis and stepped attenuators make it a perfect choice for both studio and live applications. Strap it across the 2 Buss or use it for Parallel Compression to will find plenty of application to use the Gem Audio Labs Compactor on:

      • Mastering-quality, yet versatile enough for anywhere in your audio process
      • Hand-made and precisely calibrated
      • Pure analog Class A operation
      • Gold contact stepped attenuators and toggle switches for repeatability of your settings
      • Custom torroidal transformers provide ultra stable power
      • Independent rectifiers and secondary voltage stabilizers on each channel
      • Gain reduction is made by a transistor in the differential amplifier circuit

      Layman's Terms:

      Gem Audio Labs Compactor is a two-channel, class-A compressor/limiter. Gain reduction is handled by a discrete VCA design. The Compactor outfits your studio with extremely high-quality, pure analog compression and limiting
