PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor Module for ProChannel

This module is particularly well suited to compressing and leveling sustained material and backing tracks such as bass, keys, and rhythm guitars.


Clean compression. True transparency. Hit it hard.

Note: This product does not run standalone. You must already own any SONAR version with the ProChannel modular channel strip.

Clean compression
Not all compressors react the same way to incoming signals. The PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor’s gentle,soft-knee action contrasts with the PC76’s fast response and more drastic compression action.The S-Type is ideal for leveling sustained sounds like pads, vocals, piano and guitar chords, program material,and more.

True transparency
Sometimes you want compression to be an effect.But when you need a sound that benefits from smooth compression without sounding like it’s compressed,the PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor is your go-to choice. Its gentle, transparent dynamics control givesyour audio a welcome lift without altering its character, and it responds equally well to control via itssidechain.

Hit it hard
The VCA-style design means you can hit this compressor hard with minimal “pumping” or “breathing.”This lack of artifacts lets you level a sound, and also gives you more flexibility when using the sidechain input to control the PC4K S-Type Channel Compressor. It’s great for compressing a rhythm guitar track when vocals come in, making sure bass doesn’t interfere with the kick for EDM, and ducking background music so it stays out of narration’s way.
