Also, an “Auto” mode on every channel takes the guesswork out of setting the compressor. The noise gates are excellent for cleaning up drums, vocals, and instruments. Gate feature set includes; threshold, variable attack & release times and gate range controls. The Gate boasts a Gate Key/Sidechain for precise frequency gating applications. In addition, each channel has a seven-segment LED meter that displays gain reduction, and an LED indicator for gate position (open/close) and compression threshold (above/below). A unique linking function makes it possible for any channel to be linked to the previous. This comprehensive bus can link two to eight channels together in any order as well as create various link groups. De-essing, ducking and other forms of spectral processing can be accomplished using the compressor Sidechain provided on every channel.
