The U777 is probably the fastest, most accurate limiter you will ever use. This is a brick-wall limiter and leveling amplifier rolled into one that allows smooth predicable limiting or allows crunchy, extreme loudness. Not only are these units fast, they will not allow overshoot, retaining the qualities that define true limiters.
The U777 has either electronically balanced or transformer balanced inputs and outputs. All inputs and outputs can process levels up to +30dBu in the frequency range. The look-ahead regulation circuit of the device is VCA controlled for fast, linear operation. A symmetric circuit is used for the entire audio chain and the internal Headroom from input to output is +30dBu.
The device is implemented as a look-ahead Limiter with an AC-DC converter as a fast, peak value detector. These limiters are fast reacting, precise and will regulate a 20 kHz sine wave signal down to the threshold level within the first period.
- Infinitely variable Threshold, attack, and release with wide ranges
- High headroom, fully balanced circuitry
- Precision Peak converters
- Look ahead operation for very fast, precise operation
- 9 Element LED precision, gain reduction meter with 20dB range
A stereo version of the device, U778, is also available.
The U777 is a standard V700 modules and fits into standard mounting frames
