The award winning ACP22 is the most comprehensive stereo compressor/gate in its price range today. The ACP22 is designed to provide compression, limiting and noise gating in a variety of applications; such as multitrack recording, live sound reinforcement and broadcast and permanent sound installations. In any application, the ACP22 provides two channels of crystal clear compression with full control over threshold, ratio from 1:1 to infinity:1, variable attack and release times and switchable hard/soft knee. An auto mode takes the worry out of setting the compressor by offering program dependent release with a medium/fast attack time.
The noise gates on the ACP22 are unparalleled by giving control over threshold, variable attack and release and switchable gate range (-60dB/-15dB). The ACP22 also has a unique LO PASS Sidechain filter for the gate which eliminates cymbals from opening up drum gates without affecting the audio output. The ACP22 offers a full array of inputs and outputs including balanced XLR, unbalanced 1/4" and independent TRS Sidechains for the compressor and gate for each channel.
