The Daking FET II gives you the control you need over your tracks and mixes, while its transparency and subtlety allow your audio to sound uncompressed. The FET Compressor II, like Daking's EQs and preamps, uses discrete transistor technology, Class A amps, and transformer balanced inputs and outputs for great performance and low-noise operation. You get seven release time constants for an array of classic performance characteristics, and operation is incredibly intuitive.
Daking's FET II uses discrete transistor circuitry, transformer balanced inputs and outputs, and Class A amplifiers. The amplifiers are based on the original "A Range" circuits. The FET II uses a Field Effect Transistor as the gain change element. It's a great feeling to know you're working with a piece of gear that keeps your mixes under control transparently while giving you very reliable, low-noise operation.
The FET II includes seven release time constants: .5, 1, 1.5, Neve 33609 Auto, A&D •, Compex Auto, Fairchild 670 #5, and Fairchild 670 #6. It's like having several great units built into one!
Having broken into the music industry as the drummer for '60s psychedelic band the Blues Magoos, Geoff Daking went on to truly make his mark designing and building boutique-quality studio gear. His company's latest offerings not only look classic, sound great, and perform solidly - you'll be knocked out by their decidedly non-boutique prices. Daking puts a premium on putting quality components at the heart of his gear, from circuits to transformers to amplifiers, while implementing modern techniques to ensure reliable, consistent performance.
