Core Sound is pleased to offer the wonderful RNC1773 compressor!
The Really Nice Compressor
(RNC) is a compact, affordable
stereo compressor with a high-fidelity audio path and compression
scheme. Don't be deceived by the sub-$200 price tag; the RNC is
a serious studio tool that easily competes with compressors five times
The RNC achieves such high performance at a low cost by using
evolutionary advances in digital technology, coupled with the best
analog has to offer. Using digital controls and an all-analog
signal path, the RNC offers accurate, precise controls and a
clean tonal character.
The RNC provides two modes of operation: normal and SuperNice. Normal
mode allows the RNC to be used for everyday compression tasks, like
punchy snare drums or bass guitars, and is great for everything from
gentle compression to serious squashing. SuperNice mode provides
near-invisible signal compression for sensitive material where
compression artifacts are less desirable (like vocals, acoustic guitar
or the program bus).
How does it sound? In a word: transparent.
The RNC yields clean, airy compression with few artifacts and little
high end loss, even at massive gain reduction.
This amazing performance is why many professionals are calling the
RNC one of the best sounding compressors for under $2000 (and with
a price of $170, it's way under two grand).
