The CharterOak SCL-1 Solid State Compressor/Limiter will be sold under the CharterOak Entertainment Group brand. The proprietary unit, made by CharterOak Entertainment Group for its subsidiary studio and multimedia companies Studio.45, and CharterOak Multimedia, will begin shipping in June of 2008.

The unit employs all discreet electronics and is capable of providing a constant output level regardless of input level or frequency, without the familiar pumping inherent in most compressor/limiters. The unit delivers extremely fast attack times without overcompensation, and a release characteristic, which is a function of dynamic range and average program level.

The CharterOak SCL-1 is designed to fit any standard 19” rack. The unit may be used as a stereo unit, or as two independent limiters in the dual mode. This feature enables the end user to employ the device in one or two track production applications.

Over the years, clients of the studio and multimedia companies loved the sound of the custom unit so much, that CharterOak has decided to produce the device in large numbers, and bring it to market through its international distribution network.

CharterOak has remained dedicated to providing outstanding sound, build quality, and unmatched customer service and technical support. The company’s founder, a recording engineer and producer with 20 years experience, maintains his vision to provide the level of quality and service that he always wanted to receive as an end user. From this vision, CharterOak developed Adapt(SM) – Create Your Own Classic microphone customization service, Tips & Tricks posted online, 7-day phone and web support to assist in matching the correct microphone with the correct application and a Lifetime Guarantee against manufacturing defects on all CharterOak products.
