Crane Song STC-8H - Clipping can sometimes be a good thing in the analog realm, but when you're dealing with digital, clipping is the deathblow to the perfect take. Lucky for us, Crane Song's STC-8H provides overload protection, and a whole lot more. Like the Trakker (above), the STC-8H can emulate vintage compressors or be used to sculpt unique new tones. We situated the STC-8H in the recording chain and pushed it hard recording a bass guitar. The end result was a fat and punchy bass line that was perfectly "seated" in the mix. Next, we put the STC-8H to work on the mix bus, and it magically tied the mix together, perfectly preserving the dynamics and actually improving the mix.

Class-A Compressor/Peak Limiter
The STC-8H is a high quality stereo compressor combined with a remarkably dependable peak limiter, providing overload protection critical to digital recording and broadcast transmitters. The STC-8H's compressor is engineered to provide musically transparent gain control, but is also capable of emulating vintage equipment and creating distinctive new sounds.
Switchable Enhancement Circuit
In addition, a switchable enhancement circuit creates analog and tube like warmth to enrich lifeless audio and digital recordings. This vast flexibility is simplified by the inclusion of several optimized presets, allowing fast, easy set-up on a wide variety of sounds. It can operate in true stereo or discrete independent mono, accessible by a front panel switch.
Simultaneous Compression and Peak Limiting
The STC-8H's sophisticated side-chain allows both compression and peak limiting to take place simultaneously, using the same proprietary gain circuit. High signal quality is maintained by utilizing a discrete Class A audio path, and by eliminating any VCA or optical gain control elements.
The STC-8H requires 2 rack spaces. All inputs and outputs are transformerless and balanced. The toroidal power transformer is UL approved and allows four line voltages for international use.
