Avalon AD2044

The Avalon AD2044 is a 2U rack-mounted Class A optical compressor and limiter working as two mono channels or stereo.

Using Class A circuits on the Avalon AD2044 means that you get the cleanest possible sound with the fewest number of signal interruptions along the way - and this means your sounds remain clear and undiminished, except when you want them attenuated. Using a High-speed optical compressor design comes in - nicking the transients before they can cause trouble and applying total dynamic control throughout the spectrum.

By keeping the layout simple the AD2044 from Avalon makes its operation quick and easy - since the compression ratio is set by the gain, the more you put in the more you get.

Avalon Design has become a world leader with its approach to processing equipment and its constant search for improvement. The Avalon AD2044 is the result of all that dedication.
