FMR Audio RNC1773 overview

  • 1Description

The RNC1773 Really Nice Compressor from FMR Audio is a stereo compressor in a 1/3 rack size which offers a high-fidelity audio path and versatile compression schemes, to help you control the level of vocals or create dynamic special effects for percussive instruments.

The RNC1773 provides two modes of operation, controlled with five parameters. The Normal mode lets you set the compression's attack and release times to achieve snappy snares and popping basses. The Super Nice mode cascades three stereo compressors in series, reducing compression artifacts and producing near-invisible compression for natural-sounding vocals, acoustic guitars, program bus, and more.

The Really Nice Compressor employs a microprocessor to replace analog components which can cause "scratchy" pot and switch problems. No audio flows through the front panel controls, giving you the accuracy and precision of digital control with the clean tonal character of an all-analog signal path. The unit comes with a sidechain input to make your sounds cut through the mix.
