Manufacturer's Description from Dramastic Audio

Through the use of several proprietary methods, the Obsidian performs a range of tasks unheard of from the average buss compressor. The Obsidian offers superior imaging. The stereo image always remains intact, the highs stay brilliant and clear, and the bottom continues to thunder [especially with the internal “High Pass Filter” engaged on the detection circuitry]. For even greater control, an “External Side-Chain” input is available and may be used in conjunction with the “High Pass Filter.”

Six ratio settings are available from a subtle 2:1, to a bone crushingly extreme setting. Six attack, and six release settings further complement the Obsidian making it extremely versatile on many different types of program material.

Employing the “Auto” release time gives the audio a smooth rich texture without any pumping and breathing. From there, if you have decided that the audio is a little too smooth for the application, a simple click of the release switch to the “Lo-Fi” setting will net all the “IN YOUR FACE” aggression one may desire. Try it on a drum submix! Overall, the clarity, performance and musicality of the Obsidian is unparalleled.

The Obsidian is hand crafted in the USA using the finest quality precision components available.
