Predictable control and ease of use bring the 541 to the forefront of dynamics processors at any price, ready for your API 500 Lunchbox!

The 541 Optical Compressor is a feedback style compressor, designed for relatively unobtrusive gain reduction.

The 541's control set is minimal, including a ten-segment LED gain reduction meter, a threshold control operating in the dbx-style counter-clockwise direction with a very arbitrary orientation.

Stereo pairs are linkable, please read the manual as there are different methods for linking in different 500 power supplies.

Our ONE WITH EVERYTHING ZEN WARRANTY extends the standard manufacturer warranty by one year, see our ZEN WARRANTY page for details.
