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.

I've had the BAE 10DC for a while now and I wanted to praise it here on gearslutz. The transformer coupled Class A design has an overall sound that is smooth and musical. It is my favorite vocal compressor- even better than my vintage 1176 and Distressors. The threshold has an enhanced level range...
After a long search for a replacement to a well-known bus compressor, I found myself drawn to the Neve diode-bridge sound. I'd say the 10DC falls somewhere in between the dense thickness of Neve 2254 and several more modern takes on diode-bridge design. The flavor is warm and full spectrum. On...
