The PreComp performs the functions of both a microphone preamp and a compressor. The preamp stage can deliver in excess of 60dB to handle all types of microphones, and comes equipped with Radial's unique AccuState gain control to maximize signal-to-noise at all levels. A full-feature VCA compressor follows with adjustable threshold, compression ratio and gain make-up controls. The advanced compression algorithm reads the program material and automatically transitions from soft-knee to hard knee as the signal rises above the threshold, with A simple slow-fast switch that makes it easy to optimise the PreComp for either vocals or percussion.

• Combination preamp and compressor
• AccuState gain control for low noise operation
• Full-function compressor for dynamic control
• Each processor may be accessed separately
