stereo question about rnc

Post by lancebug » Mon Oct 18, 2004 6:48 pm

I know this may seem inordinately naive, and realize I could answer this by doing a simple experiment, but:

Is gain reduction in my rnc applied to both channels simultaneously when a single channel's signal crosses the trigger threshold, or is it only applied to that channel. Thus far I have not used it in a situation that would make this empirically clear, but had contemplated using just after a pair of di's for two guitars. Is that an option or is it functionally undoable.

yes, gain is reduced in both channels evenly and simultaneously?

These are the shortest answers I've read to a forum question yet. But yes both channels evenly.

There's no way to unlink the channels either. Having a choice to link/unlink would be very useful, but I wonder if it would drive the price up and knock the RNC out of the "under $200" market.

sure thing. they only need one detector and gain reduction circuit this way, they just apply it to both channels of audio. think of it as a single channel device that they made even more valuable by allowing it to work on two related audio channels at once.

I bought it used so I never got the manual. I may very well buy another at some point as it is a good value even as a single channel. Thank you all for your brevity. -Lance-
