A good compressor

Marcus6, 20.01.2013
The compressor is price / performance already ok, but sound-technically does not come to a DBX compressor ran. Above all, voices are partly difficult to act. It is very important to ensure that the voice is properly adjusted by the console, otherwise the compressor either goes to the peak or does not compress at all. DBX makes this much better. Unfortunately, the compressor is also a lot of high (with stronger compression) lost, voices sound sometimes muffy with certain settings. The Enhancer button does not really make it any better, here the sound is partly sharp and unpleasant.
I use this only to get toms and snare to gadge and still lightly compress. He does his job amazingly well, however, one is only very limited in a gate with only two controllers, which, however, is of course good sounding toms again.

Conclusion:
+ Good to use for toms and snare
+ Usability is good
+ 4 channels on 1U that saves space
+ Price / performance
+ Gate works clean without cracking

- Sound becomes partly muffy and dull especially with voices and bass
- Enhancer regulator does not like

A small case for quick deployment

hermano, 12.10.2009
The S-Com 4 combines four compressor channels in a small space with a large range of functions. Each channel also has a switchable gate or expander.

Via a two-part, red-green LED display, the access volume can be adjusted via soft-running rotary knobs. An additional release switch allows you to switch the access time between short and long. Furthermore, each channel has a compressor which can be adjusted via a Threshold controller with a five-part LED display. The ratio can also be infinitely regulated with a potentiometer between 1: 1 and 1: 1. The integrated circuit is responsible for attack and release.

A further five-part LED display, which can be switched between input and output signal, and a gain control influence the final loudspeaker. An additional switchable enhancer is intended to provide a boost to the signal, which can have a positive effect especially when singing.
Each channel can be bypassed with a bypass switch. Channel 1/2 and 3/4 can also be connected to stereo link mode. The settings of the odd channel then apply to both paired channels.

On the back comes the S-Com 4 with balanced inputs and outputs, which can either be inserted or removed via XLR or jack. The input signal can be switched between -10 and +4 dB independently in each channel with a switch.

Paxis:
The 4-channel compressor / gate with a height of 1 HU is amazingly clear and easy to use. Its switches are all equipped with integrated LEDs, so it is immediately clear, even in the worst light conditions, which are switched on and off.
The five-part LED indicators can provide enough information, but they are inaccurate for fine adjustments. This also applies to the gate / expander, which has been reduced to a minimum with its two LEDs and the missing release pot. And also the compressor, with its missing attack and release buttons, lacks versatility that is needed in the studio. The enhancer may serve a singer on the stage of a small location, but is useless for the studio application. A de-esser would have to be switched after, as this Tweak Zischlaute strongly emphasizes.

Summary:
The Samson S-Com 4 performs well for fast and less accurate applications. It combines four gates and compressors of good quality and usability. The sound is also very good for the price segment. In the studio area, however, the device remains inaccurate and can not be influenced.
