The S com plus is a highly adaptable, dual channel dynamics processor in an efficient one-rack space. It is intended for situations where extra flexibility is required to optimize signal levels. It delivers essential control along with simplicity of operation. Its dual-channel design offers economy of space, and its comprehensive and wide-ranging controls provide extensive manipulation of audio dynamics, even in the most complex situations.
Each channel features a wide range of variable control. A comprehensive Compressor section includes variable Threshold, Ratio, Attack and Release controls. Samson's SKD (Smart Knee Detector) circuit dynamically adjusts the compression curve to ensure a musical result. Our exclusive AEG (Auto Envelope Generator) function simplifies optimum settings by constantly analyzing the audio input, and automatically adjusting the attack and release parameters based on the changing level. Key Input and Output are included for externally processing the control voltage.
The Expander/Gate features a variable threshold level and switchable release time (fast or slow). The Gate switch changes the downward expander ratio from "light" to "hard" gating for control from subtle to an obvious effect. A dedicated Peak/Limiter with variable control provides protection against peaks and overloads independently of the compressor. When used in combination with the Compressor the Peak/Limiter offers even more precise control over dynamic levels.
A functional De-Esser improves audio quality by removing "S" from vocals and sibilance from overly bright signal sources such as symbols. The enhancer switch engages the EFR (Enhanced Frequency Recovery) circuit, which restores high frequencies that are sometimes diminished by heavy compression. Extensive Metering includes Input/Output, Gain Reduction, De-esser Level, Gate Open/Close and Limit. Other S com plus features include Balanced Inputs and Outputs, +4dB/-10dB operation, individual channel bypass and Stereo Link Mode.
