The Mackie QUAD Comp/Gate along with it's sibling the Mackie QUAD EQ where two of the last great products to come out of Mackie Corporation.
The Mackie QUAD series products provided four channels of anlaogue in and out, with quality digital conversion to treat the signal in the digital domain, with analogue conversion out.
The Mackie Quad Comp Compressor/Gate was part of a family of digital outboard gear from Mackie based on the Mackie TT24 digital mixer engineering developments and featured 24bit D/A – A/D conversion.
We thought it would be good to share the love, not to mention the design and engineering expertise developed during the TT24 program.
The four channel gate/expander and compressor/limiter has a friendly front panel and a host of features that go beyond its simple appearance. Built-in independent key filters for both the gate and compressor allow for frequency-dependent gating and compression.
The simplicity of the interface makes the unit practical for entry level users, and fast enough for professional live sound engineers in any environment and studio application. The sound quality of the processing makes the unit lovely for the high end user as well. The Quad-Comp/Gate is stuffed full of compression and gating, just waiting to be unleashed!
