Bang for buck.
HenryWatkins, 01.04.2019
Great sounding unit full stop, let alone for the price. Very versatile, especially when paired up with a second unit. Love using aggressive settings on unit 1 for vocals and then utilising the 'supernice' mode on unit 2 to reign everything in.
It isn't the most sturdy feeling unit, and the packaging is a bit minimal, but for the price you won't find anything better. Good purchase!

Clean and versatile

A 500 series compressor with all the necessary parameters. So few compressors on the market at this price point give you knobs for threshold, ratio, attack, release and make-up gain. The super nice setting is also very transparent. I use it for voiceover work and tracking and its versatility is excellent. Great for tracking and a good price.

Guter Kompressor für die Lunchbox
02.04.2016
Ich hab den RNLA von FMR Audio schon seit Jahren im Einsatz als Gruppen-Kompressor für die Stimmen und bin sehr sehr zufrieden damit.

Nun habe ich für Live auch eine Lunchbox mit ein paar DIY Modulen und hab für meinen zweiten Vocal-Channel einen Kompressor gesucht. Ich wollte zuerst die RNLA 500er Version nehmen, dachte aber da ich den eh schon habe, probiere ich den RNC.

Im Vergleich ist er viel aggressiver, schneller und chirurgischer. Beim RNLA stellt man alles irgendwie ein und es funktioniert, beim RNC muss man besser aufpassen was man macht, da er viel präziser arbeitet und man kann verdammt schnell den Sound tot-komprimieren oder bekommt Pumpen.

Wer einen prazisen, zuverlässigen, gut verarbeiteten und billigen Compressor für die Lunchbox sucht, ist hier gut bedient.
Wer lieber einen "warmen", zahmen Kompressor für die Vocals sucht ist mit dem RNLA wohl besser bedient.

Ist allerdings komplette Geschmackssache, ich denke weder mit RNC noch mit RNLA macht man in der Anschaffung was falsch. Beim nächsten Mal würde ich mir vielleicht doch den anderen kaufen, ist aber ein reines Bauchgefühl und wechselt von Anwendung zu Anwendung. Am besten beide ins Rack ;-)

Ottimo compagno di lavoro
27.12.2015
Uso questo compressore molto spesso in ripresa sul basso ripreso con DI. Con settaggi non troppo aggressivi aiuta a livellare in modo molto trasparente eventuali disparità di tocco sulle corde.

Lo utilizzo anche in ripresa sulla voce, sempre per livellare con delicatezza il segnale prima di entrare nei convertitori.

La costruzione è ottima, tutte le manopole sono in metallo e solidissime al tocco. Gli switch sono piccoli ma danno una sensazione di estrema solidità.

Il metering è molto preciso e veloce, aspetto fondamentale per uno strumento che lavora sulle dinamiche.

Non è un compressore colorato, non ha una timbrica particolarmente riconoscibile o eccessiva, ma il suo punto di forza è la trasparenza.

Se cercate qualcosa per schiacciare il suono o manipolare con violenza le dinamiche sulla batteria non è il suo forte, ma se cercate un compressore versatile e affidabile è perfetto.
