FMR Audio RNC/RNLA Funk Logic Bundle

FMR Audio RNC/RNLA Funk Logic Bundle contains one FMR Audio RNC, one RNLA, and one Funk Logic LARC-11000 Rack Tray.

The Funk Logic LARC-11000 rack tray is designed for mounting one FMR Audio RNC and an FMR Audio RNLA together, in a single rack space.

The RNC is a high-fidelity, stereo compressor intended to provide dynamic range control with minimal side effects. The RNC achieves such high performance at a low cost by using evolutionary advances in digital technology, coupled with the best analog has to offer. Using digital controls and an all-analog signal path, the RNC offers accurate, precise controls and a clean tonal character.

The RNC provides two modes of operation: normal and SuperNice. Normal mode allows the RNC to be used for everyday compression tasks, like punchy snare drums or bass guitars, and is great for everything from gentle compression to serious squashing. SuperNice mode provides near-invisible signal compression for sensitive material where compression artifacts are less desirable (like vocals, acoustic guitar or the program bus).

The Really Nice Levelling Amplifier (RNLA) is a compressor, of sorts, with a character that works well with vocals, bass guitar, acoustic guitars and two-mix sources. A friend describes the RNLA's tone as "thick and gooey". Some very well-outfitted RNLA users report that even with a full complement of expensive, vintage levelling amps/compressors, the RNLA still fills a niche that the others don't!

The sonic performance of the RNLA harkens back to the Really Nice Compressor's (RNC's) origins. The original RNC was, in fact, based upon an optical gain element that was ultimately rejected (and tucked away) due to its imparting of a sonic signature (i.e., "color"). However, just like trying to throw away a ball of adhesive tape, this one has also stuck! What's the old saying? What's old, is new again? The implementation is a little different (i.e., no opto) from the 1984 version, but the final sound is eerily similar.

FMR Audio RNC/RNLA Funk Logic Bundle Features

  • Funk Logic LARC-11000
    • Black Anodized Aluminum Front Panel
    • Crisp White Silk Screened Front Text
    • Zinc Plated Mounting Tray (pre-assembled)
    • Button Extensions
    • Mounting Bolts
  • FMR Audio RNC
    • Stereo compressor in 1/3 rack size.
    • Accurate & repeatable 5-parameter controls.
    • "Normal" mode for serious signal squashing. Very fast attack times allow positive control of percussive sources.
    • "Super Nice" mode for near invisible compression. This mode cascades three stereo compressors in series to reduce compression artifacts.
    • Single TRS-cable attachement to many "insert" jacks.
    • 1/4" TRS sidechain insert for special effects.
    • No audio flows through front-panel controls, permitting short audio runs to avoid hum/noise pickup.
    • Rack-mountable.
    • Rugged extruded aluminum and electro-galvanized steel enclosure.
  • FMR Audio RNLA
    • Stereo compressor in 1/3 rack size.
    • Accurate & repeatable 5-parameter controls.
    • Imparts an obvious, euphonic "thickness" to the source.
    • "Log Release" mode to restore transients lost on some percussive sources.
    • Attack & Release controls are calibrated in the famous and coveted Tufnel scale.
    • Single TRS-cable attachment to many "insert" jacks.
    • 1/4" TRS sidechain insert for special effects.
    • Rack-mountable.
    • Rugged extruded aluminum and electro-galvanized steel enclosure.
