    Product Description

    An optical compressor is the compressor of choice in professional recording studios because of the distinctive musicality it gives to vocals and instruments like acoustic guitars and piano, but they were expensive, until now. The SM Pro Audio OC8 provides 8 discrete, high-quality optical compressors each with threshold and output controls, switchable fast/slow attack and release, 8 individual channel bypass switches and tri-state LED compression meters, eight 1/4" I/Os, and virtually noiseless operation via a Class A transformerless high voltage signal path. The OC8 is the perfect studio mate for the SM Pro Audio PR8 MKII pre-amp or any high quality multi-channel pre-amp, mixer, or HDR system.
