Ashly CLX-52 overview

  • 1Description

The CLX-52 is a dual-mono/stereo compressor limiter. It is extremely useful for such diverse applications as loudspeaker protection, vocal level control, broadcast limiting, musical instrument sustain, special effects, and CD or cassette transfers.

The CLX-52 uses an infinite soft-knee characteristic and timing based on the compression ratio. This, combined with a dual release time, allows program density to increase as the input signal increases. The result is a peak controller with very low noise, smooth sound, and excellent stereo tracking without the usual constricted limiter sound.

Sidechain input can be used for ducking audio material or for frequency dependent compression. A Stereo Tie switch links both channels for true stereo operation.

    Ashly CLX-52 reviews

    CLX-52 - Dual-Mono/Stereo Compressor/Limiter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heat Product The first thing I look for on any piece of hardware is build quality. The Ashly CLX-52 is solid and the knobs are not wiggly at all. Secondly, the action of this compressor is anything from smooth as silk to heavy pumping. As a limiter, it clamps down hard when set that way. You won't have to worry about your speakers when used in your PA system. I don't hear any noise or hiss from the unit even when pushed hard. Having both an input and output allows one to set gain staging perfectly. It's a good product. I like it. Oh, I almost forgot. It makes an electric guitar sing. If you want transparent sustain, it's got it !
