FMR Audio RNLA7239 overview

  • 1Description

The RNLA7239 Really Nice Levelling Amplifier from FMR Audio is a stereo compressor in a 1/3 rack size with 5-parameter controls, and is designed to level a signal rather than tame every transient. It can be used on several instruments such as bass guitar, drums and other sources in need of added sonic texture.

The compressor has two 1/4" unbalanced inputs that also double as TRS inserts to mate with mixers and equipment inserts. Balanced outputs give your audio the benefit of reduced noise. Reminiscent of classic opto compressors, and is admittedly much gentler to the signal, the RNLA7239 compressor is a little resistant to responding right away, but requires the signal to be there for a while. This action adds a desirable characteristic to the source signal.

Threshold
This control sets the input signal amplitude at which the RNLA will start compressing. When turned counterclockwise (CCW), the RNLA will compress quieter signals. When turned clockwise (CW), the RNLA requires hotter signals before it will begin compression.
Ratio
Determines how much the RNLA will change the output signal as the input signal changes over threshold. Turning this control CCW decreases the difference between the compressor's output and input signals. Turning this control CW increases the difference between the compressor's output and input signals.
Attack Time
This control sets "how fast" the RNLA will try to correct the input signal after it rises above the threshold level.
Release Time
Controls how fast the RNLA will return to the gain setting just before the input signal rose above the threshold level.
Gain
Makes up the average gain loss which occurs during normal compression. However, it can also be used to match gain levels to subsequent stages, etc.
Gain Reduction Meter
The meter shows the current amount of "gain reduction" being applied to the input signal.
Log Rel
Invokes the default "normal" mode or a mode with an increased release curve acceleration. When compressing a fair amount (6 dB or more), transient signals can get "swallowed", "ducked" or over-compressed. By changing the release characteristics under higher gain reduction amounts, the "punchy" character of some transient sources can be partially restored.
Bypass
This push button engages or disengages a relay that routes the input signal around to the output jacks, thereby bypassing the output of the compressor.
