Great unit
David R. 5284, 23.08.2018
I had used a few compressor units in the past with mixed results but with the ART SCL2 I found ease of use with great quality of build.

Once set up this unit gave me the kind of control I had been looking for but never quite found.

This unit is used as part of a band set up to control vocal peaks and gives us a much more balanced / controlled sound which is exactly what we were looking for.

Compresseur à prix attractif, l'accessibilité est bien construite, la connectique propre et agréable, les fonctions font bien le travail et ouvrent sur nombre de possibilités sans aboutir à la sensation d'un son qui pompe et qui alourdirait la compression, bref Art fait là un produit bon marché et de fidélité qui donne envie de se tourner vers d'autre produits de leur fabrication. Thomann toujours aussi efficaces!

Einfach zu handhaben, mittellebig wirkend
frig, 04.08.2019
Wir verwenden den Kompressor für ein Bandsetup mit ein paar Aufnahmen alle paar Monate.
Überwiegend wird der Kompressor verwendet um Spitzen im Gesang abzufedern und bei den Aufnahmen Snare und Bass-Drum zu komprimieren.
Die Knöpfe fühlen sich alle hochwertig und responsiv an. Die Anzeigen sind übersichtlich und verständlich, alle Informationen zur Verwendung fanden sich auch in der mitgelieferten Anleitung.
Mit XLR und balanced Input sowie entsprechenden Ausgängen ist es sehr einfach den Kompressorausgang in zwei Geräte zu speisen (bei uns: einmal ins Audiointerface und einmal ins Mischpult).
Auch wenn die Einheit an sich sehr robust wirkt hat sie doch (subjektiv) diesen mittelwertigen Eindruck, mMn. kann man das mit Behringerprodukten vergleichen, sie wirken auf Anhieb robust und langlebig, zeigen aber nach mittlerer Benutzungsdauer und normalem Anspruch (zwei- dreimal wöchentliche Bedienung) rasch Defekte oder Abnutzungsspuren.
Über den Sound selbst kann ich nicht viel sagen, da meine Ohren zu wenig verschiedene Kompressoren gehört haben um den Eigensound zu beurteilen. Das komprimiert wird hört man bei entsprechenden Einstellungen natürlich sehr deutlich raus ansonsten ist es ein "unauffälliges Gerät".

Eine klare Kaufempfehlung für Leute mit knappem Budget bzw. mit mangelnder Erfahrung um ein "professionelles" Gerät zu rechtfertigen, zum Erfahrungsammeln auf jeden Fall geeignet.

Schöner Kompressor
Benno aus H., 09.09.2015
Ich benutze den ART SCL2 vor Allem für Vocal- und Gitarrenaufnahmen - bisher bin ich sehr zufrieden! Das Gerät arbeitet unauffällig ohne großartige eigene Färbung des Signals.
Die Wellenkurve sieht sehr ausgeglichen aus und so hört es sich auch an. Bei Vocalaufnahmen ist noch zu erwähnen, dass gerade tendeziell schwierige Laute (wie "k", "t" oder "s") sehr schön sauber klingen. Sowohl im Mono- als auch Stereobetrieb durchaus brauchbar. Und die Verarbeitung ist wirklich hochwertig!
