Jessup, MD (December 16, 2009)–JDK Audio will introduce the R22, a two-channel, rack-mount compressor with linkable stereo operation, at the 2010 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA.
JDK Audio, the new brand developed and engineered by API, will show the new R22 and other JDK gear at the JDK listening station on the API booth (#6411) at the NAMM Show in January.
The JDK R22 uses true RMS power summing and features a patented Thrust circuit for low-end, with control of all parameters. The R22 interconnects with both balanced XLR and quarter-inch inputs and outputs. The R22 has LED indicators and switchable analog metering of the output level and gain reduction to aid optimization of gain structure.
Switchable hard- or soft-knee compression, combined with variable threshold, ratio, and make-up gain controls deliver a range of compression textures. Designed for use in a project studio or commercial recording facility, the R22 reportedly has a ruler-flat frequency response out to 50 kHz.
“We’re excited that JDK Audio’s R22 offers the same inline compressor formerly found only in Paragon consoles,” said Larry Droppa, president of API. “Everyone who has ever used that compressor has fallen in love with it, and we predict the same will be true of the R22. The Thrust circuit is a unique addition to an already great piece of gear.”
