Compressors & Limiters

Compressor / Limiters are used to either restrain audio volume to within certain levels to prevent distortion. Some will also increase volume as needed to provide a more uniform sound for your listeners.

A tamper-proof solution designed to solve audio level problems – completely! Digital, cost-effective and flexible, ALPS-1 provides control of perceived audio loudness (volume), dynamic range and peak level (modulation).  This broadcast audio processor is suitable for all situations where some combination of these three must be powerfully yet unobtrusively controlled. A truly versatile audio leveller / leveler, ideal for radio studios, codec protection, STL protection, satellite feeds, transmitter protection, web streaming and remote broadcast site operations.


Audessence ALPS-2

Adding comprehensive front-panel control features, the ALPS-2 audio leveler is ideally suited to dynamic operating environments, such as outside broadcasts, where instant local adjustment of sound parameters may be required.  A front-panel jog-wheel and LCD display provides intuitive simplicity with gain-reduction metering giving direct feedback to the user.


Audessence ALPS-3

Taking control to the next level, the ALPS-3 broadcast audio processor features full remote-control via both GPI and Internet (IP). For situations where audio parameters need to be changed on a regular basis, fully-flexible scheduling software is provided. All processing parameters can be remotely altered by automation systems to reflect changes in broadcast content.


IMG Stage Line MCL-204

2-channel compressor/limiter, with noise gate and side chain input.
For protecting vocal microphones or dynamically played instruments against overload, for equalizing level fluctuations, for emphasising a signal and for transferring analogue recordings onto digital sound carriers (volume maximisation due to dynamic compression).

Sonifex RB-SL2 Twin Mono or Stereo, Limiter

The RB-SL2 is a stereo, or twin independent mono, VCA limiter for use in news-rooms and other locations where the correct level into recording equipment is required, but not necessarily under the control of an engineer, for example, for overload protection. It can also be used as an inexpensive main output limiter for small scale radio stations, hospital radio and student radio.

Sonifex RB-ML2 Stereo Mic and Line Level Limiter

The RB-ML2 is a stereo microphone and line level limiter. The unit is mainly used where assistance with level control is required, for protection of mixer inputs and to prevent distortion.
