The ART TransY is a 1 RU rack-mountable, two-channel FET compressor/limiter designed to deliver dynamics processing with enhanced flexibility, minimal noise, and low distortion for musicians and audio engineers in recording studios and live stage applications. Its linkable channels allow stereo or dual-mono operation and can be independently bypassed. Each channel features twelve selectable ratios and adjustable threshold, output, attack, and release. Additionally, up to 16 dB of de-essing at 6 kHz is available per channel.

XLR and 1/4" balanced inputs and outputs enable proper connectivity with audio interfaces and mixing consoles. Use the 1/4" detector I/O to insert outboard gear before each channel's sidechain. Ten-segment LEDs provide easy metering of gain reduction and input/output levels. The TransY's included 48 VDC external power supply utilizes a locking connector to prevent accidental disconnects.
