Review: Q2 Audio ADR Compex F760X-RS

Date: 06/17/2015

By Russ Long. The ADR Compex F760X-RS ($2,750) is a classic FET based compressor/limiter/expander/gate and has been a go-to box for many engineers over the past several decades.

I should add that while the audio signal path and side-chain processing circuitry is completely faithful to the ADR’s version, some features have been updated to improve long-term reliability and operational flexibility, including the addition of external side-chain access which is configurable in the compressor or gate side-chains or via internal jumpers.  MORE
