The Realios TLCompressor combines high quality electronically balanced audio electronics with a tungsten lamp as a gain reduction. Available for the 500 series racks.
Imagine a compressor which doesn't use a photocell, diodes, FET, VCA, or variable-mu tube for gain reduction; only a tungsten lamp. Unlike the other technologies, a tungsten lamp adds no distortion to the audio signal making it a pristine audio device. Not only does a tungsten lamp not add distortion, but it is also a true RMS device which accurately tracks the audio level.
The Realios TLCompressor (Tungsten Lamp Compressor) combines high quality electronically balanced audio electronics with a tungsten lamp as a gain reduction element providing for smooth artifactfree, soft-knee leveling of even the most difficult program material. This is especially useful for female vocals, bass, guitar and mixes.
