The C544 is a Mono Colour Processor with four Colour Module Slots.
Each Colour Module stage has Drive/Trim circuit with 1:1 Ratio. The dual potentiometer controls the Drive Gain before the Colour Module and the Attenuation of the output signal from the Colour Module.
As a result, the Colour module Drive Intensitivity increases while the output level remains the same.
Each Colour Module stage has the Bypass Switch which allows the easy A/B operation.
The C544 has the +/-6dB Master Output Trim and the Master Bypass with the LED indicator.
The Master Bypass is located after the Master Output Trim.
Active Low Noise Colour Drive Circuit
The C544 has an active Gain Control Circuit. The first half of the Gain/Trim Dual Potentiometer is actively changing the Drive Gain.
Less Drive = less Gain, which means less noise in the background.
Other designs may use a fixed gain drive circuitry, which produces much higher noise floor levels. If more than one fixed gain stages are combined in series, the noise may become audible.
C544 will always deliver the lowest possible noise floor level. The C544 was designed from the beginning to be used by professionals in demanding studio applications.
Fully Compatible with DIYRE Colour Format
The C544 is fully compatible with DIY Recording Equipment Colour Format.
Any Colour Module made by DIYRE or other developers can be use in the C544 Colour Processor.
The C544 is also fully compatible with 500 API Format.
