Daking COMP IIT Stereo VCA Compressor

The Daking Comp IIT is a VCA style compressor/limiter with Jensen input, and output transformers, designed to provide that much sought after analogue 'glue' in an easy to use, handmade unit.

The Daking COMP IIT is designed to be easy to use and sound like much more expensive comp/limiters.  Built in the USA, it offers better sounding compression on all kinds of sources in the studio.  The COMP IIT features Jensen transformers on both the input and output which feature lower distortion, adding subtle colour and providing that much sought after analogue “glue” when used on stereo sources.  Whether in the hands of a highly experienced engineer who needs fast workflow, or a novice who is not sure how to best set up a compressor, the COMP IIT gives professional results without a big learning curve.

With big old-style analogue meters and a simple setup, the COMP IIT is easy to understand and easy to use.  Designed carefully by Geoff Daking and Dave Thibodeau to behave well on a variety of real in-studio applications, it may challenge your notions of how good a two-knob compressor can be.

The two channel COMP IIT 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.
