Monster Compressor er mye mer enn bare en kompressor: Her snakker vi tre bokser i en:
Kompressor/limiter, rørforvrengingskrets og miksekontroll mellom rent og prosessert signal

Samspillet mellom disse seksjonene gir mange bruksområder som komprimering og “oppvarming” av spor, prosessering av subgrupper, f.eks. trommer, loops, keyboards, gitarer osv.. og selvfølgelig mastering

Monster Compressor er definitivt en boks med karakter - dette er ikke en ultraclean, høflig brukskompressor - selv om kompressoren ombord egentlig forsvarer prisen alene. Den jevner ut signalet før rørkretsen på en veldig musikalsk måte. Den unike kombinasjonen av kompresjon og rørsaturasjon lar deg bringe lyden “nærmere”, hente ut detaljene og tilføre energi. Den gjør i det hele tatt lyden feitere og mer tiltalende.

Monster Compressor bygges av de beste analoge komponenter. En minimalistisk signalgang med superkomponenter med både integrerte og diskrete kretser og rør.

Nøkkelfunksjoner:

  • Original konstruksjon for unik lyd
  • Minimalistisk signalkrets basert på spesialutvalgte komponenter sikrer best mulig lydkvalitet
  • FET-transistor står for gain-reduction i kompressoren og gir en rask og tydelig karakter
  • Signalet etter kompressoren forsterkes med en diskret op-amp
  • Forvrengningskrets bygget med militærspec rør med lang levetid og høy lydkvalitet
  • 2. grads harmonisk forvrengning boost i vrengkretsen
  • “MIX”-kontroll gir deg kontroll av mengden rent og prosessert signal
  • Bryter-baserte kontroller gjør det lett å matche kanaler og finne igjen innstillinger.

MONSTER COMPRESSOR is definitely a unit with character. It was created to fill the gap in the "soulless" and "super clean" digital technology.

MONSTER COMPRESSOR is actually three original independent units built into one piece:

  • compressor/limiter
  • tube saturation circuit
  • clean and processed signal mixer
     

Fusion of these elements gives a wide range of applications i.e.:

  • compression and adding warmth to the tracks
  • sub-group processing
  • mastering
     

The Compressor evens out the signal before tube saturation in a very musical way. Unique combination of compression and tube saturation lets the engineer to bring the sound closer, extract the details and give it more energy. It makes the sound more tangible and pleasant to the ear.

MONSTER COMPRESSOR is built using the best of analog technology. The highest quality, minimalistic signal path consists of integrated and discrete transistor circuits as well as electron tubes.

FET transistor is responsible for signal level reduction, similar in sound to electron tubes. It is optimized to add low order harmonics. Because of this, the sound is tangible and detailed, even with large amounts of compression.

Following the FET transistor, there is an amplification stage built with the highest quality, discrete operational amplifier. There are no capacitors in the compressor signal path to prevent any additional distortion.

The saturation circuit is based on the military tubes (NOS) with prolonged life. The unique feature of the MONSTER COMPRESSOR is the ability to boost even order harmonics added by the tubes (2nd BOOST). It is especially useful during the more radical treatment of the tracks and sub-groups.

The MIX function is based upon an integrated circuit dedicated for audio applications. Therefore it is neutral sounding and further broadens the MONSTER's sonic variety.

The input and output are also made of the highest quality integrated circuits. This guarantees the neutral sound. The MONSTER's output is protected by high quality audio capacitors.

All parameters, except for the saturation, are switch based allowing for matching the settings on both channels when working with stereo material. It also gives the possibility of a quick settings re-call.

MONSTER COMPRESSOR is built using a high quality resistors with 1% tolerance. FET transistors, electron tubes, meters and potentiometers are carefully match so the performance is identical in both channels.

Advantages:

  • Original construction guarantees original sound.
  • Minimalist signal path, based on specially selected elements, guarantees the highest quality of sound.
  • The FET transistor, responsible for signal reduction, ensures fast compression and generates even harmonics, positively affecting the presence and legibility of tracks in a mix.
  • The signal behind the compressor is amplified by the operational amplifier with discrete elements, without the use of condensers which degrade the sound.
  • The saturation system uses military grade tubes with extended lifecycle; they ensure lack of operational issues and an excellent sound.
  • The function of even harmonics generation within the tube saturation system.
  • The possibility of quick recall setting of parameters, thanks to a switch regulation system.
  • The „MIX” function allows for mixing a clear signal with a processed one.
