The FMR RNLA-500 is a 500 Series compressor taking its cue from the hugely popular and affordable Really Nice Levelling Amplifier.
The RNLA-500 is not a simple recreation however, although its looks, thick and gooey sound are clear indication to its lineage. Indeed, the FMR RNLA-500 compressor is overall more gentle than its dual-channel module counterpart, smoother even, reminiscent of vintage opto compressors, ideal for colouring your vocals, guitars, bass keys and much more.
Using the 500 Series format, the FMR RNLA-500 uses electronically balanced in and out, 24-bit higher resolution arithmetic to provide improved performance, accuracy and consistency. Like in its older sibling, the audio path in the FMR 500 Series compressor is completely separate from the digital side ensuring superior sound with no latency. Built to last, it also features sealed switches and relays, multi-layer printed circuit board and a 40x processor for smoother and controllable compression.
