Crane Song's Falcon 500 Series compressor combines vintage tube warmth with modern flexibility. Packed into its streamlined front panel are controls for attack and release speeds, compression and limiting, and even compression coloration, plus there's a handy backlit VU meter onboard. Dialing in the compressor itself is easy thanks to simple gain and threshold controls, and it's equipped with dual signal paths plus a wet/dry mix knob. The Falcon makes parallel compression totally painless. What's more, you can easily link multiple Crane Song Falcons together for full surround sound compression.
