10DC Compressor/Limiter



"I love my BAE 10DC compressor Limiter.... I've been using it for a while now.. Very reminicent of a Neve 2254.. but with quiet switches and smaller increments..It's got a gorgeous flavour that none of my other classic original comps have."

10DC Features

BAE Audio introduces the model 10DC compressor/limiter to compliment their line of Class A series outboard gear. The 10DC features a transformer coupled, all-discrete circuitry which is sonically familiar to the BAE Audio Class A line of gear, like the 1073, for the classic analog sound favorable in today's digital recording. Stepped switches for every control, a reverse analog meter, and the trademark Marconi knobs makes seeing what you're doing easy and repeatable. Independent circuitry for compressor and limiter - use one, or both, for greater control.

The 10DC also implements a true bypass and is stereo linkable.

The 10DC is nicely housed in a steel chassis using the same remote supply as other BAE Audio units.

*Expanded range in level for greater versatility with higher output digital audio during tracking through mixing.

  • Discrete Class A transformer-coupled circuit throughout.
  • Fully independent Compressor and Limiter for separate audio dynamics control.
  • Intuitive layout with illuminated meter showing gain reduction.
  • High quality stepped Elma® switches for dialing accuracy and repeatability.
  • True bypass even when the unit is off.
  • Same remote power supply as used on other 24VDC BAE units. One power supply can run two units.
