    Rolls CL151 reviews

    CL151 Gate and Compressor/Limiter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little Compressor The dial layout is not totally clear, as some parts relate to the gate, and some to the compressor. Eg There are actually 2 knobs called Thres. But I read the instructions, and then used it.� I found the Gate was of no use to me, as that cuts the sound, so turning that Thres right around to off worked for me. I just use the Compressor. The Input and Output allow you to control each volume quite easily, and the Compressor Threshold worked well. As with many of the Rolls devices, they operate at -15VDC. Ie tip is - (minus) and ring is + (positive) which is opposite to a lot of other electronics. I don't know why Rolls is this way round. The voltage can be 12VDC up to 15VDC.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works really well for my application I record our pastor's sermons for making CD's. He has a very loud voice when emphasizing a point and I wear out the volume slider on my audio system going from quiet to loud portions. Now I can set it and forget it. Setup was easy after a little studying and just a few tweeks of the controls. Thanks!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy Limiter / Comp Mic preamp is decent enough - quite free of noise. Phantom power does the job although would recommend short-ish cable run. The compressor / limiter is missing attack and decay but set approximately right for voice limiting. It's not so good for music as it has a pretty slow release. Gate is useless and cuts off the first 1/2 second of a word when rising above threshold. (I read about this before I bought it and didn't expect it to work). If you need a small cheap preamp / compressor combo that can go between a signal and an amp to fatten up a voice / stop distortion, then this box will do the job. Eg: Single mic for a podcast, bus tour-guide mic, cheap lectern box or for internal office PA system. Voice only. For anything music, pay a bit more to get the RNC by FMR Audio.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from GLC - is really just a good preamp Installed the product as part of a podcast studio. The noise gate is COMPLETELY useless and the compressor is mostly effective, but not terribly discreet. As a preamp, its great, very low noise amplification and signal output. I then bought the DBX 286S - about double the money, but remarkable performance - totally recommend it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compressor I bought this compressor in hopes it would improve my sound and have to worry less about my mixer, It did both. Great clean sound.
