This is soo cute. Very small but large souding. When I opened the box I shocked in terms of its dimensions. You can take it to everywhere in a bag with you.
As its features;
It is just a stereo levelling amplifier and it has every features (including side chain inserts ). Only two things made me bore: First it has a wallwart. And second ( for me this is important) it has no power switch. These two things equal to two stars from features, so I gave it three stars.
As its sound;
Superb. I've recorded a bass guitar. And the result is just the same what it was written in its owner's manual:"Gooey and thick". Very close to a professional sound. And for the price the result is, for me, just pro.
As its quality;
Very nice. Noone denies the quality of its chasis and knobs. It is really small but its quality is big.
For this price, don't think twice. But put this 'small piece' at a seenable place in your studio or you can lose it :)

The Creamiest of Sounds
Bonsaipanda 09.05.2018
I'm somewhat puzzled, because for the past four hours, I have been feeding this beast almost everything from solo bass to electro leads and full mixes and it just turns everything into smooth evenly leveled audio.

I bought this unit to chop and crush the live mix from my live gear, but I was not prepared for the creamy character that it adds to the sound, especially with the Logarithmic Release - it is really pleasant to the ears.

I'm not an audio professional, so take my words with a grain of salt, but I have the DBX 266XL as a comparison device as well as a plethora of software compressors and none of them sound as smooth and as glued as this thing.

I'm actually considering buying another one for my streaming setup ...

A really nice leveling amplifier indeed
Anonymous 29.01.2016
I was searching for a polyvalent compressor that I could use on several instruments (both stereo and mono) and after some weeks of researching I decided buying the FMR Audio RNLA 7239.

The best description for this analog piece is that it thickens the sound, giving a nice vintage type of feel to the tracks.

Something cool about this compressor is that the RNLA is one of the few effects devices that uses input TRS jacks wired as "in/outs" allowing the use of a single TRS cable for both connections input jacks are bi-directional). Almost all other require a conventional, separate input and output cable set-up. If you plug the compressor to AUX though, you should use four plain unbalanced TS cables.

This item also has a very useful button called "Long Release" that specifically creates a envelope that helps not crushing the sound transients keeping their "body", while using longer releases. I use this feature very often, especially for drum bus and bass.

At the end this is a very character driven compressor that gives a nice vintage style sound to your tunes, not damaging the essence of your tracks.

Great performance for the price
Runciter 24.04.2018
Nice compressor with clear layout, efficient meter and great sound.

The build quality could be better but it will impact the price and the know are sturdy and the case is in metal so it's not cheap material.

The sidechain input could be a bit easier to use but once again it is the best compromise given the size and the price of the unit.

Great piece of material and one of the best value for money for compressors.
