The Smart Research C1 Compressor features two sets of controls and two audio channels but it does not include sidechain inputs or crush facility which are present on the C2.

The real deal. November 22, 2015
Reviewer: Nathan Turnbull from Sydney, Australia  

I was talked out of selling my C1 by a well known mastering engineer here in Sydney. He basically said it was 'the one' as far as representing an SSL 4K quad compressor, which is entirely possible given Alan Smart's association with Solid State Logic during the 1980s. I am sure glad is said that! This compressor really goes rock. It has that slightly lazy compression envelope that glues everything together is such a musical way. Alan Smart and the team at Smart Research are really top notch people too! I have ordered spare parts and he even took the time to leave a little hand written note in the package. Its a top quality piece of gear made by great people whom clearly are very passionate about what they do.

I whacked some drums there it here if you want to see it in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9aeOr5v8vxE
