The AD2044 features 100% discrete, pure class A signal amplifier configured with high speed current monitored optical control elements. These "invisible" opto elements enable the AD2044 to deliver totally transparent, low noise gain reduction within the minimalist signal path design. No VCAs are incorporated. Variable attack and release controls plus side chain access, provide unlimited creative control from soft compression to hard limiting. Sonic ExcellenceThe Avalon AD2044 Pure Class A opto-compressor is the most transparent, low noise optical-compressor available today. Designed to optimize absolute signal integrity and musical performance, the AD2044 combines advanced electronics with sonic excellence unequaled by lesser designs. The AD2044 is the perfect solution for two buss music-program compression, mono bass and instruments and mastering applications.
Features include state-of-the-art, balanced 100% discrete, Pure Class A signal amplifiers, practical "real-world" user features and rugged hardware designed to deliver true high performance audio for many years. Linear Optical CompressionCustom manufactured, high speed linear opto elements provide the non invasive passive attenuator system for invisible gain reduction. The AD2044 incorporates a unique external control loop and current monitored optical driver for smooth control plus the benefits of traditional vintage LDR compression.
