Fantastic little compressor

f_achernar, 30.06.2011
Small compressor from FMR Audio ... finally, rectifies: small by size (one can align three in a traditional rack), but great by quality. It is a product that I had not been able to try before the purchase, but which had been highly recommended to me during several exchanges ... Given its attractive price, little risk and in the end, I am satisfied Of this purchase at 200%!

Customers of "traditional" compression settings may be destabilized at first. In this case there is no setting of the ratio / threshold: the threshold is here at a fixed level, the incoming signal is therefore systematically compressed as soon as the "Drive" potentiometer is mounted ... This determines a quality for me PBC-6A: no abrupt changes when the dynamics vary greatly. By using a rather low Drive setting, with only 2 or 3 dB reduction, and a soft knee setting, you can stay in something discreet and very soft.

Attention, it is however far from being shy when it pushes a little ... it can even go back on the aggressive terrain of famous compressors 4 digits, and do the same monumental work on rock batteries, with a pretty attack Short and a "knee" setting (compression curve) hard enough. This solid side is also reinforced by a "thick" switch, which alters the release response and is very suitable for thick bass and character.

I have not yet had the opportunity to test it on voices, but I think its character would make it a serious competitor against other more expensive references.

The only negatives are in my opinion the absence of switch on / off, and the absence of a real meter to control the compression in visual (impossible given the miniature format).

Not uninteresting when you love it comfortably.

Joe die Brieftasche, 28.12.2016
I took a long time to find the combination of a Great River Pre and a Microtech Gefell microphone for me. Therefore, I am very hard to tolerate another (affordable) device in this chain.

After the first production I mean that the FMR does not deteriorate the audio quality audibly.

At the same time, he offers me the opportunity to make music as a producer and singer in a personal environment, without worrying about a recording by surprise clipping.

I have all the knobs practically at "12 o'clock" and use alone the Treshold, which is very easy to adjust. To do this is enough for me, the poor light-emitting diode chain.

Some people complain about the fact that they can not be switched off (it can hardly be seen as a dynamic change), which is especially helpful for the lonely musician: a short side view is enough to see if the device is too strong.

Thus, with economical, homeopathic use of the remedy, one always comes to a signal which does not seem to be obviously compressed but beautifully full. Also the later processing by plug-ins profit, since one has a very calculable signal without lonely peak values.

Nice are also the symmetrical connections, which is quite reasonable! I had previously the RNLA of FMR, which was however my setup for me too inferior.

Conclusion: Good device, may remain.
