Frequency Response 5Hz-20kHz@-1dBr Compressor and EQ disengaged.
Static Noise Level -85dBu@10Hz-22kHz

1- The Compress knob controls the threshold and ratio of the compression. Turning the Compress knob toward MAX will increase compression ration and threshold.
2- The Ratio switch changes the range of the ration controlled by the Compress knob.
