LA AUDIO GCX20 GATE+COMPRESSOR The GCX20 provides true RMS detection on two stereo linkable channels. (Dual mono or stereo master-slave). It provides soft knee compression with fully variable Threshold, Ratio and Gain controls plus two programme dependent Attack and release modes. Slow for music and Fast for solo instruments. There is a side chain insert for frequency conscious compression and effects. It should be noted that soft knee compression (and true RMS detection) is generally accepted as being more musical and acceptable to the ear than hard knee. Also, the gates include fully variable Threshold and Release controls with an ultra fast Attack rate plus a side chain insert for frequency conscious gating. Inputs and outputs are balanced/unbalanced on XLRs and Jacks and operate at -10dBv and +4dBu. LEDs provide visual representation of gain reduction and threshold. The GCX20 packs an impressive performance and many features into a 1U box at a very attractive price.
