RDL (Radio Design Labs) EZ-MCP1

August 17, 2010

Microphone compressor

The EZ-MCP1 is an in-line microphone compressor. It is installed between a dynamic or condenser microphone and a mic-level mixer or amplifier input. The only setup required is a front-panel level trimmer that is adjusted during normal speech until the compression LED just begins to flash. Phantom voltage (24V) is automatically switched on when the EZ-MCP1 output is connected to a mic jack that provides phantom voltage. It produces consistent audio levels and controls overloads that produce distortion and clipping.
