The Crane Song STC-8 Compressor Limiter was the first Crane Song Compressor that Dave Hill designed, and what a compressor to start with!

Unique and beautiful, this Dual Mono Discrete Class A Compressor / Limiter comes complete with 'presets' for Vocal, Bass, Program, and Manual mode.The STC-8 provides sound through Program Dependent Release, known as PDR and Dynamic Attack Modification, known as A-MOD.

The groups of presets provide each combination of these settings with every group offering a further three presets with optimized choices. These provide the best sound available with the Attack, Release and Shape Settings. There is also one Variable control which is controlled by the front panel.

Slipping effortlessly between Compression and Limiting, or both, the Crane Song STC-8 can be transparent using the HARA postion on the front panel for a complete overload protection. If the signal path requires some extra character then switch in the KI postion, where it provides extra warmth, with the texture of sound dependant on the Attack, Release and Shape Control Settings.

Extremely high quality metering and controls provide the final touches to one of the best mix compressors out there.
