Compressor & Limiter

The Komit is a streamlined dynamics processor that that combines a super-clean compressor circuit with an old school diode-bridge clipping limiter, for creative tone shaping with maximum flexibility.

A dynamics processor with character

The Komit provides superior dynamics control that one would expect from a studio grade compressor/limiter, along with vintage character and tone to help your tracks stand out in the mix. A transparent VCA compressor is easily configured with a three-position switch to set the speed of the attack & release times, a variable compression ratio, and a makeup gain control. This is augmented with an old school diode-bridge clipping limiter, with ten settings that increasingly clip the input signal for results that range from subtle analog clipping to over-the-top distortion. The limiter can also be set for brick wall operation to prevent overloading digital recorder inputs, and both the inputs and outputs feature vintage style Hammond broadcast transformers add extra warmth to the signal path.

Komit Applications

Channel Strip

The Komit is the ideal compressor to compliment a 'gold' channel strip. Feed the mic into a PowerPre, an EQ and the the Komit can keep dynamics under control for more professional results.

Stereo program

The Komit can be set to stereo mode by linking two Komits together. This is great for mastering. And even though the two units will share the same time constant, independent compression retains the full stereo image.

Ducking

Use the key input (via the Omniport on the Workhorse) to automatically duck a guitar track (lower the level) when the vocalist begins to sing. Simply connect the TRS output from the PowerPre into the Omniport key input.

Reviews


"The Radial Engineering Komit Compressor Limiter was designed to be an easy to use and highly effective compressor that can be set up with a minimum of fuss, and it excels at it. The Komit is fast, fun, versatile, and musical - what more could you ask for?"

By Phil O'Keefe


"Radial have managed to pack in plenty of features -- and they've done that by limiting the user's options, but in a musically useful way."

By Matt Houghton


"A transparent compressor combined with an old-school "clipping" limiter that can get as gritty as you please."

By Buddy Saleman


"A compressor and limiter in one box. Instead of actually limiting the signal, a type of clipping is implemented. When using the limiter you don't get the sound of gain reduction, which is nice, but pushed over the top it can go from mildly clipping to absolute madness with the limiter set to a low threshold and the gain up. It is intense!"

By Dan Weston

""When my sound engineer changed the front end of my vocal channel to the Radial PowerTube preamp, Q4 EQ and Komit compressor, I stopped mid song and asked why we did not do this sooner? My vocal has never sounded better!""
