Crane Song STC-8 - Discrete Class-A Compressor/Peak Limiter

  • Discrete Class-A Compressor/Peak Limiter
  • Switchable analog/tube enhancement circuit
  • Sidechain allows simultaneous compression and peak limiting
  • Transformerless, balanced I/O

Clipping can sometimes be a good thing in the analog realm, but when you're dealing with digital, clipping is the deathblow to the perfect take. Lucky for us, Crane Song's STC-8 provides overload protection, and a whole lot more. Like the Trakker, the STC-8 can emulate vintage compressors or be used to sculpt unique new tones. We situated the STC-8 in the recording chain and pushed it hard recording a bass guitar.

The end result was a fat and punchy bass line that was perfectly "seated" in the mix. Next, we put the STC-8 to work on the mix bus, and it magically tied the mix together, perfectly preserving the dynamics and actually improving the mix.
