The FMR Really Nice Compressor (RNC) is a compact, affordable stereo compressor with a high-fidelity audio path and compression scheme. Don't be deceived by the price tag; the RNC is a serious studio tool. By using digital controls and an all-analog signal path, it offers accurate, precise controls and clean tonal character. The RNC provides two modes of operation: normal and SuperNice™. Normal mode allows the RNC to be used for everyday compression tasks, like punchy snare drums or bass guitars, and SuperNice mode provides near-invisible signal compression for sensitive material where compression artifacts are less desirable (like vocals, acoustic guitar or the program bus). I/O features 1/4" Unbalanced I/O (TS, or TRS for console inserts); L/R in & out, & TRS sidechain. Controls feature threshold, ratio, attack time, release time, output level bypass & mode select.

FMR RNC1773 Features:

  • Stereo compressor in 1/3 rack size
  • Accurate & repeatable 5-parameter controls
  • "Normal" mode for serious signal squashing. Very fast attack times allow positive control of percussive sources
  • "Super Nice" mode for near invisible compression. This mode cascades 3 stereo compressors in series to reduce compression artifacts
  • Single TRS-cable attachement to many "insert" jacks
  • 1/4" TRS sidechain insert for special effects
  • No audio flows through front-panel controls, permitting short audio runs to avoid hum/noise pickup
  • Rack-mountable
  • Rugged extruded aluminum and electro-galvanized steel enclosure
