Incredibly warm and transparent There are few products that get the sort of high praise bestowed upon Focusrite's Red Series. The Red 3 is a unique two-channel Compressor and Limiter which offers both dual independent mono operation and true stereo operation from a single set of controls. The channel inputs and outputs feature top-grade transformers that provide superb DC isolation while maintaining an ultra-wide signal bandwidth and high headroom. Each channel has separate controls for the compression and limiting functions with a VU type meter providing clear visual indication of either signal level or gain change. In the stereo mode the two channels are linked with a common control and sensing network and all control functions for both channels are accessed through the lower set of front panel controls, offering true stereo operation without the need to match two sets of controls.
