Foote Control Systems P3S Compressor
The Foote Control Systems P3S boasts a smooth sound and predictable control for easy, quick setup. The audio path of the P3S was meticulously crafted using the finest available analog components.
The P3S is equipped with a powerful new feature, the ability to freely mix compressor time constants to create unusual compression types such as RMS + AR, AR + NL or any other combination using the 4 time constant pushbuttons.
While the audio path is a very clean, low distortion design, the P3S is capable of a wide range of sonic manipulation from crystal clear low ratio compression that preserves the nuances of musical performance, to extreme over-compression. The P3S is capable of over 50dB of gain reduction, while remaining musical sounding. Like any sophisticated piece of audio equipment, the P3S takes a little bit of time for users to familiarize themselves with its capabilities and myriad ways to treat audio signals.
