Our company cannot be responsible for damage to unit or electric shock to.
Then put the unit into dlstressor to further affect the compression in a more frequency dependent unit. Time constants – Attack range 50uS – 30mS.
The LED’s above the switch will cycle through eight states. Enter text from picture: Both input jacks are differential but manuall the output, only the XLR is differential balanced.
Then put the unit distrrssor link to further affect the. For ADAT’s try 6 to 7 output level. See block diagram below and stereo hookup in this manual. Stereo operation requires only two things. The only possible problem is if you attach one of the XLR output pins 2 or 3 to ground.
Both input jacks are differential but at the output, only the XLR is differential.
Therefore if you only use only pin 2 on your output cable, leave pin 3 floating unconnected and vice-versa. Basic Wiring Wiring is straightforward. To print the manual completely, please, download it.
In fact, you can put entirely different audio into the Stereo Link input that will affect the main audio coming out, but not be heard itself. The sidechain must not have appreciable delay nor be out of phase since the “link” signal gets mixed back in with the normal detector signal and the delay would cause “combing” of the frequency response, resulting in irrational compression behavior.
However, unlike most units, the user has the option to treat the left and right channels differently. A separate amplifier drives mznual of these pins, so grounding one of them will short the associated amplifier out. One could bring the Bass track in on two. There are three additional modes that affect the detector part of this unit.
In order of occurrence: For equipment, try 6. This is due to unique left and right ambient envelopes widening the stereo image. Pin 1 should almost always be grounded on the XLR cables. It is usually best to match all distgessor. Always unplug unit before removing cover!

Page 5 The Ratios and their Curves Each “ratio mode” of the Distressor sets both the threshold and the ratio, in the standard sense of the word.
The actual audio you finally hear is not passed through this circuitry, only adjusted by it. Empirical Labs – Something old, Something new Our company cannot be responsible for damage to unit or electric shock to anyone trying such a modification.

Troubleshooting Also, try enabling and disabling the “HP” in the detector. Complain wrong Brand wrong Model non readable. Always unplug didtressor before making any changes. Sometimes for room mics, keeping the units unlinked actually makes them sound more stereo. The output phone jack tip is wired to pin 2 of the XLR out, and therefore is in phase with that pin.
An example of this may distresspr when one channel has a heavy low frequency source such as a tom drum that is causing both sides to pump. Also, try enabling and disabling the “HP” in the detector.
By pressing ‘print’ button you will print only current mamual. In order of occurrence:. The actual audio you finally hear is not passed through this circuitry, only. Release goes up to 20 seconds in The old, sought after vintage gear is not anywhere near as accurate or linear as devices made today, but certain “faults” This will saturate each low frequency note making it sound distorted, and if adjusted right, much like a bass amplifier.
Sometimes for room mics, keeping the units unlinked actually makes them. You could put the side without the L.
Obviously, the unit will not work in stereo now. Comments to this Manuals Your Name. See block diagram below and stereo hookup in this.
