Inspired by the DBX "Over Easy" style compressor, it features independent attack and release knobs, output gain, and an all-in-one knob function for compression which decreases threshold, increases gain and ratio all with one turn. Limit Switch allows the MSCL to act more like a peak limiter. The threshold switch lets you compress signals of different amplitudes. It also features a side chain input for classic ducking sounds on stereo tracks.
Comp knob: adjusts makeup gain, threshold, ratio simultaneously.
- 1.25:1 to infinite:1 ratio
Attack Knob: Controls how fast the compressor will react to incoming transients
Attack speed: 0.15ms/dB to 0.1s/dB
Release Knob: Controls the speed in which the compressor will release.
Release speed: 0.6ms/dB to 4s/dB
Gain Knob: Adds up to +-35dB on the output
Threshold Switch: Changes the threshold rainge
Three ranges: -15dBu, -4dBu, +5dBu
Limit Switch: Limits the comp knob's makeup gain. Makes the MSCL operate more as a peak limiter.
Three selections: None, 9dB, 3dB
