  • 1Description

The Splice SA-76 MKII FET Compressor from Serpent Audio comes with four compressor circuits in one unit. The mode switching feature allows you to easily switch between these circuits at the push of a button. The four circuit modes are Blueface mode (blue input circuitry and black output circuitry), the Blackstripe mode (black input circuitry and blue output circuitry), classic Blackface mode (black input and output circuitry), and classic Bluestripe mode (blue input and output circuitry).

Four compressor circuits in one unit
Stereo linkable with front panel switch
External send and return with front panel switch
Slam mode (all buttons in) feature available via front panel switch
True bypass (relay controlled) with front panel switch
Mix/blend control knob with switchable bypassing for parallel processing
Integrated active sidechain filters
Switchable 600-Ohm output loading allows for easy optimization of the unit for use with both vintage and modern equipment
45 dB of gain (no limiting)
True VU meter with meter buffer circuitry
Integrated linear power supply
Compatible with 115 or 230 VAC power input (user-selectable on rear panel)
