Samson S-Com Plus Stereo Compressor
The S-com plus is a highly adaptable stereo compressor/limiter in an efficient single rack space design. It is intended for situations where extra flexibility is required to optimize signal levels by delivering essential control along with the simplicity of operation. S-com plus's comprehensive and wide-ranging controls provide extensive manipulation of audio dynamics, even in the most complex situations.
Each channel features a wide range of variable control. A feature-rich Compressor section includes variable Threshold, Ratio, Attack and Release controls. Samson's SKD (Smart Knee Detector) circuit dynamically adjusts the compression curve to ensure a musical result. Our exclusive AEG (Auto Envelope Generator) function simplifies optimum settings by constantly analysing the audio input and automatically adjusting the attack and release parameters based on the changing level. Key Inputs and Outputs are included for externally processing the control voltage.
The Expander/Gate features a variable threshold level and switchable release time (fast or slow). The Gate switch changes the downward expander ratio from "light" to "hard" gating for control ranging from subtle to an obvious effect. A dedicated Peak/Limiter with variable control provides protection against peak and overload independently of the compressor. When used in combination with the Compressor the Peak/Limiter offers even more precise control over dynamic levels.
A functional De-esser improves audio quality by removing "S" from vocals and sibilance from overly bright signal sources such as cymbals. The Enhancer switch engages the EFR (Enhanced Frequency Recovery) circuit, which restores high frequencies that are sometimes diminished by heavy compression.
Extensive metering includes Input/Output, Gain Reduction, De-esser Level, Gate Open/Close and Limi.
