The Focusrite Red 3 is a Class A VCA-based dual mono/stereo compressor/limiter. The compressor/limiter features a single Class A VCA to achieve truly high class compression and limiting free of the usual compromises. The success of the design is attested to by the Red 3’s TEC award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in the Signal Processing Technology category.

The VCA used is a proprietary Focusrite design, fully discrete and balanced, offering superb low noise and distortion, and excellent common-mode rejection. In order to separate compression and limiting, the side-chain electronics contain three VCAs in series to generate compression and limiting control voltages which drive the main VCA. The result is true compression followed by limiting, rather than the more common characteristic of compression that turns into limiting. The side-chain electronics are class A, ensuring superb transient response. Both compression and limiting therefore offer true peak response, not averaging RMS response.

  • Superb low noise and distortion, and excellent common-mode rejection
  • Stereo switch for true stereo operation from a single set of controls
  • Key inputs with illuminated push-button selection
  • Illuminated push-button switches for compressor/limiter in/out on each channel
  • Precision VU metering of signal level or gain change (switched)
  • Can operate as a discrete channel unit
  • Frequency response: 5Hz to 200kHz
  • Noise: Better than -80dB below +4dBu output level
