ART Dual Limiter Classic PWM Compressor

No frills here -- just 2 channels of serious dynamics control. ART's classic pulse width modulation design yields low noise and smooth, transparent limiting.

Applied Research and Technology's DUAL LIMITER offers a superb level of sound quality, and its design will enhance the sonic textures of your audio system for years to come. Developed in partnership with studio and live-sound engineers, the DUAL LIMITER is very musical.

The heart of the Dual Limiter is a PWM gain control circuit. Combined with its intelligent detector, the result is a classic-sounding compressor/ limiter without the traditional noise and distortion artifacts.

The DUAL LIMITER was designed and constructed with high quality components, assuring a lifetime of quiet, reliable performance.


- Two channels of dynamics processing
- Selectable stereo linking of channels
- XLR balanced inputs and outputs
- 1/4" TRS active balanced inputs and outputs
- Variable Attack and Release controls
- Selectable Slope
- Hardwire bypass
- 5-segment Gain Reduction LED array
- Internal power supply
- 3-year parts and labor warranty

The DUAL LIMITER may be used as either a compressor or a limiter with all of the following:
- Multitrack or analog recording device.
- In a mixer's channel insert points.
- Between a microphone preamp and signal processors.
- Between pre-amplified electronic musical instruments (synthesizers, guitars, bass, samplers, acoustic instruments with pickups) and other line-level equipment.
- The ART DUAL LIMITER may be used in a wide variety of applications and environments. Housed in a rack-mountable, all-steel enclosure, the unit read more is designed for continuous professional use.
