The PBC-6A Vintage-y Compressor from FMR Audio is a mono compressor in a 1/3 rack size with five parameter controls and a variable eight-position, second-order, sidechain filter. It can be used to provide maximum flexibility in sculpting your sound for live and studio applications.
The PBC-6A is capable of a large range of effects. Featuring 8 LED's for gain-reduction display and sidechain-filter frequencies, the Vintage-y compressor has five parameter controls including drive, knee, attack, release, and output settings. In addition, there are two push-buttons for bypass and thick, which restores the natural transient dynamics to the signal.
Furthermore, in a minimum drive and knee setting, the effect is subtle and delivers a slight textural change to the source signal. Increasing drive levels and increasing the knee control permits a less gradual change from low-ratio compression to larger ratios and presents smaller input-signal changes. This results in a drastic alteration of the source sound.
Finally, whether you're trying to get a sound to sit right in the mix or create over-the-top sonic effects, the PBC can be adjusted to help you realize your vision.
