500 Series Stereo FET Compressor/Limiter with Stepped Controls, Built-in Highpass Sidechain Filter, Attack and Release Knobs, Link Mode, and True Bypass

Functioning as an updated stereo version of Lindell Audio's 7X-500 compressor and geared toward mix and drum buss duties, the 77X-500 500 Series Stereo Compressor provides the same 1176-style compression as its mono counterpart in linked or unlinked stereo modes. Additionally, it gives you variable attack and release knobs. Like the 7X-500, it provides 3 selectable ratios and a high-pass sidechain filter that assure your bass frequencies will pass through the compressor unchanged. A wet/dry knob allows for parallel-style compression, while gain reduction metering is provided via dual LED arrays. All of the unit's FET transistors are matched for stereo control.
