Rane has created the DC 22 Dynamic Controller, a new compressor/gate using high quality log RMS detectors and Voltage Controlled Amplifiers (VCAs). The DC 22 combines compression and gate functions with simplicity.

When using the DC 22 as a true stereo processor with left and right signals, activate the Link switch. In Link mode, Channel 1 becomes the Master and Channel 2 the slave. Gate Threshold, Compression Threshold, Compression Ratio and Output Level are all controlled by Channel 1. This ensures that both channels track perfectly, maintaining perfect balance and image. The Channels are totally independent with the Link switch off.

The adjustable Gate is a downward expander, acting like a compressor running in reverse, making the quiet parts quieter. This is valuable in reducing system background noise. The Ratio is fixed at 2:1. When the signal drops below the set Threshold, the Gate Threshold indicator lights and the output level is reduced by 2 dB for every 1 dB the input signal level drops.

Features:

  • Two Independent Gates
  • Two Independent Compressors
  • Two Independent Output Level controls
  • True Master / Slave operation in Link Mode
  • -10 dBV / +4 dBu Input Sensitivity Switch
  • +4 dBu and Overload Indicators
  • Balanced XLR & TRS Connectors
  • Internal AC Power Supply

The DC 22 will begin shipping early November.
