Rounding out Rane's series of analog-controlled digital products for live sound applications, the C4 offers four feature-packed channels of compression and limiting in a 2U package. Internal and external sidechain options offer a fully adjustable parametric EQ for frequency-dependent compression or de-essing. The oversampled brickwall limiter determines the maximum output level and operates independently of the compressor. Adjacent channels link in a master/slave arrangement to ensure accurate tracking of stereo inputs. Meters show sidechain level relative to threshold, gain reduction and complete dynamic range.

Features include independent compressor/de-esser and limiter per channel; relative threshold de-essing remains calibrated at any gain/level; external sidechain with balanced/unbalanced TRS input; sidechain includes a fully parametric filter and compress, de-ess and listen modes; independent below threshold, gain reduction and limiter headroom metering; stereo link; all inputs and outputs are auto-balanced/unbalanced, XLR and TRS I/O; and an included universal internal power supply.

The C4 ($999) begins shipping Q1 of 2004.
