Intelligent Compression in the Analog Domain
Utilizing a unique control circuit, a totally new approach to AGC, and entirely discrete electronics, the CharterOak SCL-1 provides completely artifact free compression. The device achieves this through waveform differentiation and integration. The SCL-1 employs a rectifier circuit that has a parabolic average charge curve. The intent of the circuit is to provide fast releases of rhythmic and staccato peaks, and longer releases of legato notes, within the user established range of dynamic compression, which release to a continually changing average level or sustained music, which is determined by the parabolic charge curve of the storage capacitors.
