Tegeler Audio Manufaktur Vocal Leveler 500

Borrowing the same optical compressor circuit from their VTRC, the Tegeler Audio Vocal Leveler 500 is the perfect choice for smoothly shaping the dynamics of vocals, guitars, or any other instrument. Compression doesn't need to be complicated, and so the Vocal Leveler keeps things simple with only a few essential controls. Define the intensity of compression with the Gain Reduction control, and manage your volume with the Output level control. Beyond that, a bypass switch engages the effect, or allows parameters to be linked from a second unit for stereo operation, while a Release switch shapes the tail-end of compression to be Fast, Slow, or Automatically adjusted. For additionally utility, all potentiometers are stepped for exact recall of settings, and an internal FET circuit provides some special harmonic goodness as an added bonus. Give your dynamics a bit of a nudge with the Vocal Leveler 500 by Tegeler Audio.
