The Platinum Compounder is a high performance dynamics processor designed for the quality conscious professional and project studio owner. This highly featured unit is an essential tool for any style of music. The combination of high quality compression with the powerful Bass Expander makes this unit a must have for any dance music engineer or musician.

The Platinum ComPounder is a high performance, dual mono compressor/ limiter/gate, designed for the quality-conscious audio professional and project
studio owner. This highly featured unit is an essential tool for any style of music. The combination of high quality compression with the powerful Bass Expander, make this unit a must-have for any dance music engineer, musician, or club installer

High specification compressor The compressor in the ComPounder features Class A amplification and a custom VCA circuit design derived from the legendary Red 3 Dual Compressor/ Limiter, resulting in superb sound and very low distortion. Soft and Hard Knee compression curves and a wide ratio control that takes you beyond infinity for that classic pumping sound, means you have substantial control over compression. With the unique Bass Expander section you can make kick drums and bass riffs far more powerful and effective. The bass expander circuit uses a unique wire-wound inductor to generate extra bass harmonics, fattening up low frequency signals. Add to this the single ‘Huge’ feature and be afraid, be very afraid! Gate / Expander The unique opto circuit featured in the ComPounder’s two Gate/Expander sections ensures quiet operation with no pops or clicks. With a complete set of controls you have accurate control over gating, and the expand switch ensures professional noise reduction on difficult audio tracks such as vocals. High performance opto-limiter A matched pair of high quality Optos offers improved performance over standard VCA limiter designs which tend to add high levels of distortion, even when they are not limiting. The Limiter features a Class A low distortion design and accurate threshold control to ensure quality precision limiting. The limiter enables you to prevent overload when recording via the optional A/D. True Stereo Linking The link feature enables the ComPounder to act as a true stereo processor, enabling complete stereo control of every parameter. When switched to ‘link’, the left channel becomes the master section and controls both left and right compressor and limiter sections simultaneously. Unlinking allows you to operate the unit as a dual mono device, processing two separate channels independently.
