The URS Classic Console Strip Compressor digitally recreates characteristics of a transformer input and a specially designed 1975 VCA gain reduction amplifier. The Compressor features fully adjustable Threshold, Ratio and Gain Makeup and has three preset Attack and Release settings. The Compressor section is selectable between Pre/Post the Equalizer section. URS say it is both warm and aggressive
The URS Classic Console Strip Equalizer section features a three band EQ digitally recreated from three different analog consoles. URS say they have selected the critical frequencies for today's Hip Hop, R&B and Rock and that Bass Drum, Bass and Vocals jump out in the mix with quick EQ adjustment. The LF and HF bands each offer three different frequencies. The Mid range band is fully sweep able with selectable Sharp or Wide bandwidth.
URS are calling the Classic Console Strip the "Easy Eight". The URS Classic Console Strip's eight knobs map perfectly to the Command|8, Digi002, ProjectMix I/O, ProControl, Control|24, VENUE and ICON controllers allowing for quick adjustments on individual tracks. The eight knobs map to Page Table 1 and all other functions map to Page Table 2 for a compact screen design. The Strip is also super DSP efficient with12 TDM instances per HD Accel chip.
