The Tapco SQUEEZ 2-channel Compressor/gate. Two channels of smooth compression and gating, plus an adjustable "Air" EQ for that classic vocal sound of the '60s and '70s.
The Tapco SQUEEZ provides two channels of smooth compression and gating, plus an adjustable "Air" EQ for that classic vocal sound of the '60s and '70s. The Compressor section offers both auto "soft-knee" and "hard-knee" curves, while the Soft Gate employs an expander function at the threshold to eliminate annoying clicks from drums and other percussive sounds. Finally, the adjustable "Air" filter restores natural top-end, letting you dial in vintage sounds without the hassle of expensive and finicky old gear. The Squeez SQ-2 features balanced XLR and 1/4 inch jack inputs and outputs for connecting to virtually any mixer. A 1/4 inch TRS (jack) Side Chain insert is provided for frequency-dependent or time-shifted compression, ducking, or even triggering the processor with another signal entirely, opening up a whole new palette of sonic control. Compact, the SQ-2 requires just one space of a standard 19-inch rack. It has a switchable 115V/230V power supply in case you've gotta leave the country in a hurry. And like everything TAPCO, it's designed tough to withstand the rigours of the road.
