ART (Applied Research & Technology) has introduced a fully featured single rack space two channel compressor / limiter / expander / gate in a highly affordable package aimed at the cost conscious pro user. This is what they have to say about it...
"The ART SC2 is a highly sophisticated and flexible dynamics processor designed for easy operation while delivering superior tone. Highly versatile, the SCL2 can deliver anything from smooth subtle compression to hard limiting with simple front panel control. Superior highly effective noise reduction is provided by a fast solid gate with a subtle expander.
The Attack and Release functions allow the user to set the general operating range and then automatically adapt to the audio being processed. A full auto mode is also available for quick and easy implementation. The ultra-precise LED meters while two LED meters clearly display the gain reduction for each channel."
