RA-Komit-500

Radial Komit Compressor 500 Series Module

The Radial Komit™ is a feature-rich compressor-limiter that simplifies the process of dynamic manipulation while expanding upon creative tone shaping. At one end is a super-clean compressor that delivers amazing results with single knob control. At the other, an old-school diode bridge clipping limiter goes from 'vintage to nasty'. But don't let the minimalist approach deter; the Komit provides exceptional flexibility by integrating a series of automatic functions that are both musical and intuitive. Close your eyes and listen… the Komit does the hard work for you.


    • Radial Komit PRODUCT FEATURES:

      • Single dial auto-tracking compressor-limiter
      • Old school diode bridge clipping limiter
      • Brick wall setting for set & forget recording
      • 100% discrete with Hammond broadcast transformers
    • Radial Komit TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS:

      The Komit is a unique dynamic shaping tool that combines a VCA compressor with a diode bridge clipping limiter. Although careful attention has been paid with respect to achieving world-class specifications, this has played second fiddle to delivering exciting audio results. Key to the performance is the way the Komit transitions from soft to hard knee while delivering less than 0.05% distortion in the critical range. And as shown in the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT), the Komit delivers a near perfect cascade of even-order harmonics for the sonic warmth that is characteristic of old-school transformer coupled inputs and discrete analogue circuitry.
