Roll Music RMS755 Super Stereo Mixbus Compressor Details
The sound of stereo buss compression has become ubiquitous in todayís larger-than-life music. When itís done well it can enhance the sense of cohesion and fullness that makes a recording sound like a record. When itís done poorly it can make a recording sound bloated, puffy, muddy, muffled, distorted, and just plain bad. The stereo mix presents a challenge to the compressor that is unlike processing an individual track. Its charge is to control dynamics on a wide range of sounds without pumping on the kick drum, muddying the cymbals, burying the snare or losing focus on the vocals.
The RMS755 Super Stereo compressor from Roll Music Systems was created for just this daunting task. Its controls are specifically suited for tailoring a mix. We didnít waste time or money on gates, external triggers, and other unrelated functions. Instead, the Super Stereo provides wide and precise control over attack and release time, including a unique dual release mode that allows slower release on long, loud passages while retaining control over fast transient recovery. Thereís also a switchable 150Hz high-pass filter in the sidechain to avoid pumping on big bass beats. Internal jumpers allow you to select several other settings from 60Hz up to 250Hz as well, a very simple swap. All of this comes together with a superbly transparent response characteristic and pristine audio quality to create one smooth, satisfying dynamics processor that lets you hear the music, not the compression.
When you invest in tools, you want to protect your investment by choosing quality tools that last, like the Super Stereo compressor. A stainless-steel chassis and faceplate with virtually indestructible laser-engraved lettering houses a short, clean signal path with only top-grade amplifiers and components, robust internal power supply, and burly controls that scream quality and reliability.

What We Think - Roll Music RMS755 Review
"This thing rocks! Well, the deal is it can do the aggressive squash well without choking the high end out of it...and it can do light taming very well also. This is a versatile box that would be a strong addition to anybody's mix arsenal! From country to death metal the Super Stereo does the trick. The hi-pass sidechain can also be swapped (easily, with internal jumpers) and experimenting with different frequency settings can net even more possibilities with letting that low end shine.From super colorful pumping to easy transparent peak riding, the Roll Music RMS755 Super Stereo Mixbus Compressor delivers!"
