Q2 Audio F765 (Stereo Pair)

Q2 Audio F765 stereo Pair is the compression and limiting sections of the famous "Compex Limiter"™ built into a single 500 Series slot. The audio path contains the same blue Phillips type capacitors and BC series transistors as the original Compex.

Formatted after the vertical "N-Unit" with slight layout changes for enhanced usability, the F765 lives up to the reputation it's big brother, the F760X-RS, has made over decades of being a "secret weapon" on countless records.

The original F760-N module was used by major recording artists worldwide throughout the 60s, 70s, and 80s. This famous, iconic processor was instrumental in shaping the sounds of that era. Now as the F765 it returns to take a worthy place in the ever-popular 500 series rack system with it’s unique signature on the sounds of today.

• Single channel level control offering simultaneous compression gain reduction with peak limiting
• Precision calibrated compressor/limiter threshold control which allows the user to “dial up” the amount of compression required before peak limiting occurs
• Switched Compression values from 1:1 (amplifier), 2:1, 3:1, 5:1, 10:1 & 20:1 (limiter)
• Auto dual platform release function – allows fast transient recovery on a “build-up” slow release

• Input: 10K ohms Unbalanced
• Output: Transformer Balanced (Cinemag CMOB-3L) Max output: 20dBu, 18.5dBm
• Metering: Sifam Fast Responding analog meter
• Stereo Linking: Must order as stereo pair
• Power requirements: +/-16V DC @ 70mA per rail (brief 400mA turn-on surge).

Purple Audio ACTION is a FET compressor reminiscent of the MC77, designed to work in standard 500 racks.

The Action by Purple Audio features a constant impedance 600 ohm input attenuator feeding the input transformer, just like the MC77 units. This makes the input more resistant to overload by hot signals. After the input transformer, the signal is attenuated by the same gain reduction FET as in the MC77. The attenuated signal is buffered by a class A KDJ3 Op-Amp, which feeds the output fader. Lastly, the class AB KDJ4 output Op-Amp drives the custom hexafilar nickel and steel output transformer. The total gain (with no attenuation) is 45dB, just like the MC77.
