The TK Audio T-Komp Vari-Mu Compressor features a unique design which offers a modern take on the old vari-mu ratio curve. The ratio is level-dependent and increases with the signal level, a feature that will give you numerous possibilities.
To make the T-Komp more useful it has two ratio ranges. The first one goes up to 20:1, perfect for instrument tracking and smashing drums etc., the second, 2:1, is a more narrow range which makes it more suitable for bus compression. The T-Komp can be selected between feed-forward mode for a punchy, modern response or feed-back mode with a smoother, more musical response.
The RMS detector has five settings, four from fast to slow where number four, the slowest, is similar to the old 160VU. The fifth position is a program-dependent adaptive mode.
