URS Announces The Classic Console Compressor Bundle

URS (Unique Recording Software), a 2004 Mix Magazine TEC Award Software Technology nominee for their Classic Console Equalizers, is pleased to announce The Classic Console Compressor Bundle. The URS Classic Console Compressor Bundle digitally recreates the buss compressor/limiter of two famous British mixing consoles. The Bundle includes the 1970 Compressor and the 1980 Compressor with two versions each: Compressor/Limiter/Side Chain version and Compressor only version.

The 1970 Classic Console Compressor features digital recreation of transformer input and diode bridge gain reduction amplifier characteristics.

The 1980 Classic Console Compressor features digital recreation of the IC input and voltage controlled gain reduction amplifier (VCA) characteristics.

High Resolution "Double Precision" processing
The URS Classic Console Compressors use Hi Resolution 48-bit TDM and 64-bit RTAS "Double Precision" processing for increased clarity, headroom and unparalleled gain reduction. Hi Resolution "Double Precision" processing helps to avoid internal clipping in the Digital Domain.

Independent Compressor and Limiter sections
The Compressor and Limiter sections are totally independent of each other. Both feature separate variable Attack, Release and Threshold controls.

Built in Internal Side Chain Filtering
The Internal Side Chain High and Low Pass Filters fine tune how narrow or "Broad Band" the URS Classic Console Compressor will affect the program material. Both Filters completely overlap to dial in problem frequencies.

Listen Key
The Listen Key is after the Filters section. The Listen Key allows you to monitor the signal being sent to the Gain Reduction detection circuit.

Classic Sound with Modern Features
The URS Classic Console Compressor adds other powerful modern features such as totally variable Compression Ratios, Attack and Release times.
