The MSCL is suitable for both subtle as well as powerful compression. Ratio (1.25:1 to infinite), makeup gain and threshold are edited with just one potentiometer. In detail, the threshold is lowered while ratio and makeup gain are turned up. - And vice versa. Additionally to said knob, there is a switch defining the threshold range used. (-15 dBu, -4 dBu, +5 dBu) Thanks to this control element, it is possible to not only use the MSCL with modular signals, but other audio material as well. A second switch allows the user to curb the makeup gain by 3 dB or 9 dB. As a result, the module will behave more like a peak limiter. Attack (0,15 ms/dB to 0,1 s/dB) and release phases (0,6 ms/dB to 4s/dB) can be edited via corresponding potentiometers. A volume control at the output makes it possible to add up to 35 dB of gain. Thanks to a sidechain with bypass switch, the user is able to control the compressor’s control path via external signals to create ducking effects.
