The Valley People Dyna-mite is a powerful audio compressor, gate, expander and limiter for 500-series.
The Valley People Dyna-mite updates the original design and ports it to highly flexible 500-series format. Its primary purpose is to solve issues occurring tracking or mixdown. Largely unchanged from its original design the Dyna-mite delivers the same performance that made it so unique and popular. The only notable difference is the inclusion of a servo-balanced output circuitry designed to accommodate modern requirements with driving 600Ohm to +24dB.
The impressively fast peak limiter responds to transients in around 6 microseconds while in average mode, the time increases to 10 ms. The Average Limiter allows for the overall perceived loudness to be increased without sacrificing transients ensuring that the limiter doesn’t squash the sound. The Average Limiter is as a result very unobtrusive and can achieve 20dB of gain reduction without producing a huge amount of undesired dynamic distortion. Thanks to a gain recovery coupling added in the control, the Average Limiter can also be used as a high ratio compressor simply by reducing the Threshold below 0dB.
In Expander and gate mode, the Valley People Dyna-mite shines thanks in no small part to its auto-release circuit which prevents the release circuit from interfering with the attack of an incoming sound while keeping extra fast release times.
Additional features include a Range knob control which lets you set a limit to the maximum gain reduction, while an FM/ds switch routes the input signal through a an EQ circuit which adds a 6dB/oct boost above 2kHz. This was a requisite for FM broadcast use. Additional I/Os are featured on the front to allow for side-chaining, keying, ducking, de-essing and more.
