Optimod-FM 8400: Has more than five times the DSP power of the 8200 as well as new features. Its intelligent peak limiting system and look-ahead compression offer a clean, loud sound without distortion, trashed baseband or pilot tone modulation. Selectable soft, medium and hard bass clippingare included. The limiting system eliminates the need to compromise between voice distortion and music loudness, allowing even loud, highly processed presets to offer pristine live speech. Patent-pending composite processor allows the stereo composite signal to be limited while preserving stereo separation and protecting the stereo pilot tone and RDS/RBDS subcarriers.
