The Samson S*COM is a dual-channel, signal rack space Expander/Gate, Compressor/Limiter, and Enhancer designed to reduce noise, increase loudness, prevent clipping, and recover high frequencies that might get lost during heavy compression. The Expander/Gate section features a variable Threshold control, a Fast/Slow switch for setting release times, and Open/Closed LEDs for precise monitoring of the gate’s operation. The Compressor/Limiter controls include Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release, Output and a switchable "Auto" function (attack and release times can be set manually or automatically). The Enhancer is fully adjustable and puts the "air" back into compressed material. The S*COM also features both XLR and servo balanced 1/4" I/O connectors, +4/-10 input level switches, "Key Listen" for external triggering, and Gain Reduction and Input/Output level meters.
The S com is a dual-channel, single rack space dynamics processor designed to control signal levels in a variety of applications. The S com's logical design and layout make it simple to understand and easy to use. Its sonic integrity offers clean, distortion free audio, and a predictable and usable range of control from undetectable to clearly identifiable.
Each channel combines an Expander/Gate, a Compressor/Limiter and a fully adjustable Enhancer. This unique circuit reduces noise, increases loudness and recovers high frequencies that might otherwise be compromised when audio is heavily compressed. The Spectra switch adds an upper mid band boost to the detector circuit to help smooth out harsh vocals.
The Expander/Gate function features a variable Threshold level control and an adjustable release time, from fast to slow. The Gate's operation is easily visible with twin (open and closed) LEDs. The S com's Compressor/Limiter controls include Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release, and Output. The Auto function continuously analyzes the audio input, and automatically adjusts the attack and release parameters based on the changing level. A Key input and Key Listen feature provides for external triggering, or EQ, of dynamically processed signals.
