Samson SA-SCOM4 overview

  • 1Description

The Samson S-com 4 provides four channels of dynamics processing with an expander/gate and compressor/limiter on each channel. The four channels operate independently or in two stereo pairs.

The compressor/limiter section of the S-com 4 includes variable threshold, ratio and output levels. The expander/gate section features a continuously variable threshold control as well as a switch for fast or slow release times. An enhancer switch restores high frequencies that are sometimes diminished by heavy compression.

Multi-segment LED metering on the S-com 4 displays input/output level, as well as gain reduction. Balanced inputs and outputs, with +4 dB or -10 dBV operation allows the unit to interface into any professional environment.

    Samson SA-SCOM4 reviews

    S-com 4 - Four Channel Compressor/Limiter is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seducing price, but... At first, when I saw this 4 channel compressor, I told myself: What a great price for such a product.Pros:4 Channel Gate/Comp for $... Come on!Cons:The Compressor does it's job, but we lack parameters. The hard knee-soft knee button would be appreciated, so are attack/release controls (the automatic one is really bad, you never get what you want)The quality of the preamps and the compression itself could be a lot better. I couldn't find a good sound on voices, neither on drums... I don't know what to do with this one, so I just keep it as a backup, and sometimes just use it on voices to compress it just a little, or just gates on instruments.If you really want something cheap, that's what you're looking for. If you want good sound, and great control, you may look for something like DBX 166 series.
