The 10DCF Compressor/Limiter from BAE employs Carnhill and Jensen transformers with discrete circuitry while adding an inductor-based bypass filter. The bypass filter delivers increased flexibility while recording low-frequency ranged instruments, and engages at 50, 80, 160, and 300 Hz, ideal for users who want to compress a broad frequency range while leaving lower frequencies uncompressed. The 10DCF Compressor is also stereo linkable, making them the suitable complement for the output stage of a mixer.

The 10DCF Compressor is a versatile tool for both tracking and mixing. It retains the same top grade, Class A circuitry that is present in BAE gear, while providing bypass filter options that make it more customizable, especially useful for drum and bass applications. It also features a useful range of features on its front panel, including Elma stepped switches for each control, BAE Audio's Marconi knobs, and a gastank style analog meter.

The combination of these elements provides users with accurate visual and tactile reference points as they adjust and shape their sounds. The metering on the compressor incorporates a sleek and simple design, with easy-to-read white lettering set against a black background in a rugged gastank style encasement.

  • Discrete Class A transformer-coupled circuit throughout
  • Fully independent compressor and limiter for separate audio dynamics control
  • Intuitive layout with illuminated meter showing gain reduction
  • High-quality stepped Elma switches for dialing accuracy and repeatability
  • True bypass even when the unit is off
