The VC-FC is a unique stereo forward compressor in the sense that all compressor parameters can be voltage controlled from the external modulation sources by CV inputs. It gives a lot of possibilities for an instant change of compressors character by CV signals from analogue sequencers or other CV generating devices. The external devices, such as filters can be also inserted in to the Side Chain of the compressor for frequency dependend gain reduction.
The threshold from which incoming signal is compressed is variable in the range from -15 to +15 dB.
MODE/ constant threshold
The gain of the compressor is variable in the range of +24 to -6 dB with a fixed output level at +6 dB at maximal ratio.
Knee can be set for a sharp or soft character of gain reduction ((imitates the vintage opto compressors gain reduction)
by manual selector or by CV signal with two states; 0 for sharp knee and +2 Volts to 10 Volts for soft knee.
The compression angle is variable (by knob) or by CV signal from OFF (no compression) to limiting (almost infinite
ATTACK and RELEASE
Attack and release time are controllable by knobs or by CV signals in a wide range for all possible musical applications.
The Attack Time; from 200usec's to 250 msec's and The Release Time; from 20msec's to 8 sec's.
The Makeup Gain is controlled by knob or by CV signal in the range from -15 dB to +15 dB
