The JDK Audio R22 is a great 2 channel vintage style compressor that was purchased at a local music retailer for a great price. I had my eyes on this compressor for a while just didn’t want to fork out the money for it. Then the store was having a weekend sale and gave me 15 percent off in an email and I immediately jumped on this compressor because I heard another band use it before.


It is simple to use this compressor and if you are into vintage compressors like I am, than you will enjoy it as much as I do. This unit is well worth the 1000 dollars that it cost me to purchase it. The signal to noise ratio is 88 dBu (comp in) and the maximum level is 19dBu. This compressor gave me a warm classic tone to many different audio sources that I ran through it. Sometimes I like to get creative and run different instruments through these classic compressors just to hear what they can do to them.


On acoustic guitars and vocals this compressor was great. I have heard similar compressors in major studios and they cost double and sometimes triple what this R22 cost. The R22 gives two channels of API style compression and the model of compression it is based on is the ATI Paragon mixing console (which I was already familiar with).


This compressor does a great job with dynamics and still keeps a very natural sound without going overboard on the compression even if you start to “over compress” it will still come out pretty clean for the most part. I love this compressor a lot, and so does an electric guitar player that comes over to record a lot, this is the compressor he request every time and I think it is the sole reason he comes here to record now. JDK has had some gear in the past that I was not a fan of but the R22 is flat out great!
