RDL (Radio Design Labs) HR-MCP2
The HR-MCP2 is a dual-channel microphone compressor that produces a consistent audio output level over wide variations (up to 25dB) in the microphone input level. Rear-panel switches allow setting each output to mic or line level. Each channel can therefore be used as a mic-level in-line compressor or as a microphone preamplifier with compression. The unique circuit design preserves full studio-quality low-noise performance at any gain setting. The HR-MCP2 is compatible with dynamic and condenser microphones. A front-panel switch is provided to enable 48Vdc phantom to both microphone inputs. It is designed to hold average output levels constant without altering the sonic integrity of dynamic sources. Gain reduction is nearly instantaneous for both expected and severe input overloads. Automatic release time adjustments result in nearly inaudible compression action over the entire dynamic gain reduction range.
What the Pick Hits judges had to say:
"Great input level handling; I could not overload it."
"The processor handles a wide dynamic range, which is perfect for studio and field applications."
