Daking COMP II Stereo VCA Compressor - B-Stock (Ex Demo)

The Daking COMP II is a handmade compressor/limiter designed to be easy to use and sound like much more expensive comp/limiters. 

NOTE: This is an ex-demonstration unit.

The two channel, electronically balanced COMP II, can operate in dual mono or stereo linked mode for a beautiful stereo image. In dual mono it acts like two independent mono compressors for use on two different - perhaps unrelated - sources. There is no master channel in stereo mode. Each channel retains its independent control.

The Daking Comp 2 is a complex design that employs a unique method of gain reduction using a VCA like a FET. This maintains the unique Daking sound of legacy compressors. Unlike most VCA designs, ours uses feedback gain reduction, a peak detector and an all-discrete Class A follower.


The outboard power supply makes sure this unit is quiet and usable around the world on any voltage. Switches are illuminated, making it easy to see what’s “on” in a dark room. The rear panel offers XLR electronically balanced inputs and electronically balanced XLR/¼” TRS outputs.
