Radial Engineering R700 0150 overview

  • 1Description

The Radial Engineering Komit Compressor Limiter simplifies the process of dynamic manipulation while expanding upon creative tone shaping. At one end is a super-clean compressor that delivers amazing results with a single knob control. At the other, an old-school diode bridge clipping limiter goes from vintage to nasty. The Komit provides high flexibility by integrating a series of automatic functions that are both musical and intuitive.

The design begins with an auto-detecting, feed-forward VCA that reads the incoming program material and reacts in real-time to the time constant. Set the 3-position attack-decay switch to slow for vocals, medium for instruments, and fast for percussion. As you increase the ratio, the Komit FlexKnee compression dynamically adjusts the pivot point, seamlessly transitioning from soft to hard knee for more natural results.

The Komit Clipper is designed to introduce personality to your recordings. The Clipper simulates the sound created by old-school diode bridge circuits from the early days of radio. These clip the input signal when they exceed the headroom. Ten settings are graduated from mild harmonic overload to extreme nasty.

To ensure absolute signal integrity, full-size discrete electronics are employed throughout, while the vintage-style Hammond broadcast transformers add extra warmth to the signal path. A variable level control provides gain make-up or can be used to drive the Clipper for added distortion. Dual ballistic VU metering makes it easy to simultaneously view compression and output while making adjustments. Designed for use with all 500 series racks, the Komit Compressor Limiter can be linked for full stereo operation. When used with the Radial Workhorse, the Omniport is assigned as a key input for frequency dependent compression, de-essing, ducking, or any number of dynamic manipulation effects. The Komit Compressor Limiter transcends the complex world of dynamic manipulation with the simplicity of a single dial control.

A 12-position dial lets you engage a brick-wall limiter, bypass, and the Clipper, an old-school diode-bridge clipping circuit with 10 graduated settings that range from slight clipping to over-the-top distortion.
FlexKnee compression circuit transforms from soft to hard knee as it follows the compression ratio setting. Variable with up to 10:1 compression.
Sets up master-slave configuration, sharing the same time constant for optimal stereo coupling while maintaining independent channel compression.
Variable with up to +22 dB, provides gain make-up when signals are compressed. It also used to drive the diode-bridge Clipper for added character.
Dual Ballistic VU
10-segment LED ladder is divided into two meters. The left side indicates compression while the right side indicates output level. Easy to read, it provides instant visual feedback of signal status.
Brick Wall
This setting changes compression ratio control from 10:1 to a 25:1 brick wall limiter. Suitable for set-and-forget digital recording where you want to keep signals out of the red.
When used with the Workhouse, the stereo link switch lets you combine 2 Komits together following the same time constant. It is also active on standard 500 series racks using the 6-pin card edge terminal.
3-Speed VCA
Three settings with feed-forward auto-detection make it easy to set the time constants. Slow for vocals, medium for instruments, and fast for percussion.
Lets you toggle the threshold between +4 and -10 dB to optimize the input range for all types of program material.
It is designated as a key input to allow external control over the compressor side chain. Available when used with Radial Workhorse rack.
Bypass switch lets you quickly compare the original pre-compressed signal to the settings you have selected on the Komit.
100% Discrete Active Circuitry
Full size through-hole discrete electronics for optimal signal transfer. Parts are selected and mounted by hand.
Military Grade
A 12-position Grayhill switch features gold contacts and a steel shaft for years of trouble-free performance.
Double-Layer Front Panel
Steel construction adds rigidity to reduce stress on the PC board.
Dual Potentiometers
Doubled up solder points for ensuring durability. Steel casing with steel shaft and retention nut will not bend when under stress.
Mil-Spec Circuit Board
Features double-sided PCB and full ground plane to assure lowest possible noise and durability for years of trouble-free performance.
Gold-Plated 15-Pin Card Edge
Double-sided to ensure positive connection to the receptacle for improved mating.
Hammond Input Transformer
Delivers that warmth of true analog circuitry to produce a vintage tone sans the noise.
Hammond Output Transformer
Provides isolation while adding sonic character of old-school broadcast circuitry.
Channel Strip
The Komit is a compressor that compliments a gold channel strip. Feed the microphone into a PowerPre, an EQ and the Komit can keep dynamics under control for more professional results.

Stereo Program
By linking 2 Komit Compressor Limiters together you can set it to stereo mode. And even though the 2 units will share the same time constant, independent compression retains the full stereo image.

Use the key input (via the Omniport on the Workhorse) to automatically duck a guitar track (lower the level) when the vocalist begins to sing. Simply connect the TRS output from the PowerPre into the Omniport key input.
