Samsons new S Class series of processors were professional designed to offer more features than anything in its price range. The single rack space S Class processors work just as well in a live situation as in the home, project or professional studio.
The SoCom is a two channel Compressor with an Expander/gate, Limiter and Enhancer on each channel. Included are a Threshold Level control and an open/closed LED for the gate. The AEG or Automatic Envelope Generator allows the Threshold and Release times to be set automatically depending on the program material. The SKD (Smart Knee Detector) chooses hard or soft knee as needed automatically also dependant on the program material. The two channels can be linked together to operate as a stereo pair.
The SoCom Plus has the same features as the Socom with the addition of variable de-esser. Included is the ability to use manual or auto mode (AEG) for compression and a Key Input and Key Listen for controlling the envelope circuit with an external source.
