Daking's FET III gives your tracks that extra "oomph," without over-coloring them. The FET III lets you stay true to the vibe of the original mix, while you get your tracks where they need to be. Think of it as a studio tool, not a paint brush. Saying that, though, shouldn't take away from the versatility of the fully Class A FET III. It works well on an extraordinary variety of sources. The highpass filters - an upgrade from the FET II - let you improve and customize the limiter behavior of the FET III.

The Daking FET III is a dual channel limiter from Geoff Daking, built in the US with the same audio path and detector circuits as their highly successful single channel Daking FET II limiter. The FET III compressor circuitry and gain stages are all discrete and fully Class A, with sound quality that will be at the very top of the scale. The previous single channel FET II was known for its speed, high performance, and its unique ability to sound good on an extraordinary variety of sources. The FET III equals this benchmark, while adding several unique features to improve user control.

Variable Highpass Filters from 0 to 200Hz are added to the detector stage of each limiter channel to improve and customize limiter behavior. The HPFs tell the limiter not to trigger limiting based on content below the set HPF frequency. This is extremely helpful on bass heavy material. This greatly widens the units potential application set and the ability of the user to set this new behavior "on the fly". Variable linking between channels is envisioned for use when compressing two different tracks, such as bass and kick, to tie limiter action together to greater or lesser degrees. The Stereo Link is continuously variable from 0 to infinity.

All the controls except "Ratio" are variable potentiometers (pots) that add the ability to fine tune behaviors in the studio. Because the FET III is two independent units in one box, it uses audio summing, which is much more accurate. The FET III uses THAT Corp differential amps in and out (electronically balanced). The common mode rejection in FET III is equal to that of FET II. The FET III output level is +24 while the FET II can be as high as +30. The FET III uses an (included) outboard power supply. The FET III 2 RU case provides a small pocket in the back panel to store this external power supply, and is fully RoHs compliant.
