TC Electronic P2 Level Pilot 

The TC Electronic P2 Level Pilot is a stand-alone processor that has been designed as a 'set and forget' limiter for broadcast, post production and fixed installations where loudness and spectral balance consistency is required.

The front panel of the P2 Level Pilot has an LED indication section and a navigation panel which has eight preset buttons and a 'wizard' function, which can be accessed by any user if the unit is in an unlocked state - signified by a dimmed 'Lock' button with LED. An administrator can program and assign preset algorithms by connecting the P2, via the RS232 port, to a computer running TC Icon Editor software. Editable functions include input setup (dual mono/stereo/wide stereo), automatic loudness control (ALC), live delay up to 1000ms, 5-band compression, brick-wall limiting and sample-rate conversion on/off. Once the preset has been mastered, it can be stored and assigned to one of the eight preset buttons for any user to access.
