The T-Komp has a unique design which offers a modern take on the old vari-mu ratio curve. The ratio is level dependent and increases with the signal level, a feature that will give you numerous possibilities.
To make the T-Komp more useful it has two ratio ranges. The first one goes up to 20:1, perfect for instrument tracking and smashing drums etc., the second, 2:1, is a more narrow range which makes it more suitable for bus compression.
The T-Komp can be selected between feed-forward mode for a punchy, modern response or feed-back mode with a smoother, more musical response.
The RMS detector has five settings, four from fast to slow where number four, the slowest, is similar to the old 160VU. The fifth position is a program dependent adaptive mode.
Input impedance: 24kohm
Output impedance: 50ohm
Max in/output level: +26dBu
Frequency response: 20Hz to 20kHz +/- 0,1dB
Signal to noise ratio @ 0dBu: better than 94dB
THD: level and compression dependent, mostly even harmonics
Make-up gain: 0 to +20dB
Blend control: from dry to wet
- 1mS / 40mS (most useful for peak limiting)
- 5mS / 200mS
- 10mS / 400mS
- 25mS / 1000mS (similare to the old 160vu)
- Adaptive mode
The attack and release are locked in relationship to each other.
FB: selects feed-back mode
HP filter: 150Hz, -6dB octave
In: compression in/out
2:1: selects a more narrow ratio range
Gain reduction meter
115v or 230v, selectable

Swedish video reviewer MixGus has made an in-depth review of the T-Komp.
It’s a 20 min video where he uses the T-Komp both on separate tracks, drum bus and the mix bus.
