The Comp 500 500-Series Optical Compressor from Aphex is a single-slot 500-Series compressor with a Jensen JT-11DL transformer balanced output. It is designed for use in both tracking and mixing music, dialog, and sound effects. The Comp 500 features an optical element designed for Aphex to provide transparency and cause little coloration. Its adjustable release time allows the Comp 500 to range from leveling amp behavior to compression behavior.

The Comp 500 has dual 10-segment LED meters that display gain reduction and output levels. Aphex includes an illuminated Link button that enables you to link two Comp 500s together for stereo buss compression or compression of a stereo source. The Comp 500 requires a 500-Series power supply for operation.
