501 Peak-RMS Compressor / Limiter

The Symetrix 501 Peak/RMS compressor/limiter is a precision dynamic range controller intended for use in the most demanding professional audio applications. The 501 is two dynamics controllers in one unit. Separately controlled, simultaneous RMS detection and peak limiting is provided so that the limiter can be set to prevent spikes and allow the compressor to control the signals without applying more than the desired amount of gain reduction. The 501 performs both duties with unsurpassed distortion and noise specifications. A full complement of controls gives the operator the ability to perfectly tailor dynamic response. This isn’t a one slider device; you are in control.
