GML 2030 Compressor
Dynamic Range Controller

Twenty-two years of progressive research into loudness perception resulted in a limiter/compressor unlike any other. The 2030 Dynamic Range Controller was intrinsically developed to react to loudness (rather than volts) like our ears do. The 2030's psycho-acoustic approach uses multiple true-RMS detectors, remarkably accurate log converters, and fast peak detectors to respond intelligently to real signal energy, not just level. This unusual design employs unique controls, like Crest Factor, Timing, and Release Hysteresis to access the parameters that you really want to adjust.
Familiar features such as Stereo Link, Soft/Hard Knee, Ratio, Output Level, as well as the comprehensive 40- segment tricolor Gain/Loss metering have been carefully optimized for flexible, creative control over a wide dynamic range with a lack of audible artifacts. The entire audio path is all-discrete, including the VCA, for unsurpassed transparency and low-level resolution. The 2030 packs all of this in a formidable 3U, two-channel unit. The Model 2030 Mastering Dynamic Gain Control is a precise tool for mastering and other critical applications where the utmost in control, flexibility, and transparency is demanded. Based on the proven GML Series III control and audio architecture, this no-compromise dynamic range controller continues the GML engineering tradition and expands familiar Model 8900 capabilities, including multi-channel operation.
