Dave Hill Titan Compressor Limiter
Excellent condition, works perfectly. This is a really incredible compressor, Dave Hill (aka Crane Song) gear is top quality. Retails for $1700 new, save a bunch here.
Titan is an analog compressor-limiter with a very large range of color and control choices with recall.  The main audio path is a discrete class A design. Resetability is attained by using stepped controls and encoders that have their values displayed on Titian's color LCD display.  Titian is a digitally controlled analog device in design with a very high speed dsp side chain that allows the design to push the limits beyond what is possible in the design of an analog side chain. 

The compressor-limiter controls are the normal; Threshold, Attack, Release, Shape, Bypass-In-Link, Meter Select, and make up Gain.  These controls have their settings displayed on a color LCD display.  The Shape control shows the knee of the compressor. With the knee characteristic being graphically drawn on the LCD to allow the user to see the knee's shape. The graphical display updates with the changing of the Threshold and Shape controls.  When stereo linked the unit selected as control master will control all functions on the second channel. 

In addition there are controls that can provide color choices;

VCA COLOR
The VCA COLOR control provides a mix between a very clean PWM gain control device and a vintage gain control element.  The vintage gain control element is a diode type compressor circuit.  There are 16 steps in the cross fade-mix control for a wide range in choices

PARALLEL MIX
The PARALLEL MIX control blends the unprocessed audio with the compressed audio, a parallel compression function.  There are 16 steps in the cross fade-mix control for a wide range in choices.

DYNAMIC COLOR
The DYNAMIC COLOR control is a control that provides harmonic content that is opposite in nature of the harmonic content that the vintage gain control element generates.  The effect of the Dynamic Color control can be described as making the sound "bigger".  This function has 16 steps to provide a wide range of sonic control.

FAT - AIR
The FAT - AIR switch that will add air or fatness to the compressed audio

Titan is a single rack space 100 to 240 Volt switchable   50, 60 Hz
