The Radial Komit™ is a feature-rich compressor-limiter that simplifies
the process of dynamic manipulation while expanding upon creative tone shaping.
At one end is a super-clean compressor that delivers amazing results with single
knob control. At the other, an old-school diode bridge clipping limiter goes
from 'vintage to nasty'. But don't let the minimalist approach deter; the Komit
provides exceptional flexibility by integrating a series of automatic functions
that are both musical and intuitive. Close your eyes and listen… the Komit does
the hard work for you.
The design begins with an auto-detecting feed-forward VCA that reads the
incoming program material and reacts 'real-time' to the time constant. Set the 3
position attack-decay switch to slow for vocals, medium for instruments and fast
for percussion. As you increase the ratio, the Komit FlexKnee™ compression
dynamically adjusts the pivot point, seamlessly transitioning from soft to hard
knee for more natural results. Yet unlike most limiters that are designed to be
transparent, the Komit Clipper™ is designed to introduce personality to your
recordings. The Clipper simulates the sound created by old-school diode bridge
circuits from the early days of radio. These clip the input signal when they
exceed the headroom. Same deal… only here, you are in complete control. Ten
settings are graduated from mild harmonic overload to extreme nasty. Think of
Nine Inch Nails.
To ensure absolute signal integrity, full size discrete electronics are
employed throughout while the vintage style Hammond broadcast transformers add
extra warmth to the signal path. A variable level control provides gain make-up
or can be used to drive the Clipper for added distortion. Dual ballistic VU
metering makes it easy to simultaneously view compression and output when making
adjustments. Designed for use with all 500 series racks, the Komit can be linked
for full stereo operation. When used with the Radial Workhorse, the Omniport is
assigned as a key input for frequency dependent compression, de-essing, ducking
or any number of dynamic manipulation effects.
The Komit transcends the complex world of dynamic manipulation with the
simplicity of single dial control. Stand by for take off...
