    • Radial PreComp TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS:

      The Radial PreComp is a straight-ahead channel strip that combines an ultra clean preamp with a high performance VCA compressor. With a wonderfully linear response from 20Hz to 20kHz and a noise floor below 120dB, the PreComp is able to accurately reproduce signals upwards to +24dB without concern. On the compression side, the response curves demonstrate consistency at all signal levels along with a smooth transition as compression ratios are increased. This confirms that the PreComp is perfectly capable of delivering dependable, distortion-free performance that is sure to please the most demanding professional.
