IMG Stage Line MCL-204

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).

For each channel:

  • 8-step LED level display, switchable to input signal or output signal
  • 12-step LED attenuation display
  • LED indicators for a perfect adjustment of the threshold values for expander/gate, compressor and limiter
  • Servo-balanced inputs and outputs
  • Bypass switch (hard bypass)
  • Switch for hard or soft compression (soft knee)
  • Threshold control and rate control for expander/gate
  • Threshold, ratio, attack, release and output level controls for compressor
  • Automatic mode attack/release for compressor
  • Side chain mode for controlling the compressor via an additional external audio signal, with monitor function and low cut filter, can be switched on additionally
  • Threshold control for limiter
  • Selector switch +4 dBu/-10 dBv for internal level adjustments

Parallel control of both channels possible via one operating panel (link/stereo mode)
