With the new "Stereo Image Link" option, the Distressor user now has three link options - the original "phase" link, the new Image Link and the combination of the two, phase and image linking. This has never before been offered on any compressors or limiters. There can be very slight differences in the metering between the two units. They are often offset around "0" to allow for "dead spots" at the lower extremes.

Really grabs. Three audio modes providing user programmable, warm harmonic distortion. Emphasized tube- like, 2nd harmonic in clean and Distort 2 mode.
In Distort 3 mode, the distortion becomes dominated by 3rd harmonic, more similar to tape. No hard clipping until a few dB past "Redline". Advanced built-in sidechain EQ - High mid band emphasis prevents harsh, edgy guitars or vocals from hurting innocent ears.
Eight unique curves - From the mode that simply warms up signal with low order harmonics without intentional compression, to the "Nuke" setting - a brick wall limiting curve that shines on live drum room mics. Each curve has its own personality, and release shape.
Most exceptional is the "Opto" ratio which uses separate circuitry to emulate the oldest and valued "light controlled" devices, such as the LA-2A etc. See manual to emulate other compressors of old. Huge knobs with high resolution numbering - For easy readability and repeatable settings. Locked, calibrated, output level - Allows speed in setting tape and live mix levels. Over designed power supplies - Runs cool, allowing cabinet to be sealed - without heat vents.
Long life components. Single height and light weight - Classic sound in a small, extremely reliable package. All contacts doubled up for maximum reliability. No internal audio connectors. Changeable by user to pin 3 hot! All metal film and Roederstein resistors in the audio path - top quality components. Many military spec.

Greater than dB signal to noise in distort 3 mode. Distortion ranges between. DC coupled output - High quality input caps. Time constants - Attack range 50uS - 30mS. Release range. Power Consumption — Typical is 10 Watts, maximum is 14 Watts.
