PreComp Applications

PreComp for voice-over in post production

The PreComp is the perfect channel strip for recording a voice-over in post production or tracking a vocal when recording. Plug your mic in, set the mic level, then add a touch of compression to level the signal and keep it out of the red. The PreComp is quick and easy to use.

Using the PreComp in a broadcast studio

The PreComp is the perfect front-end for on-air broadcast. Set the level, add the appropriate amount of compression to ensure the voice is maximised and let the show begin! For greater tonal control, add the Q4 parametric EQ into the signal chain using the Omniport 1/4" TRS insert.

Using the PreComp for live recording

Use the PreComp to capture the signals right from the microphones and keep the dynamics under control to prevent distortion. Split the signal by using the ┬╝" TRS output on the Workhorse to feed the recorder and the XLR out to feed the PA system.
