  • Finalize
    Welcome to the heart of the Finalizer Express. You select which style of compression you need and how you want it to work with the adjust cursor keys. Move the LED to the lower left corner to use very subtle dynamics processing or to the upper right light corner for the heaviest and fullest dynamics processing you can imagine. Then there is everything in between - you have complete control.
  • Select Input
    Select analog balanced XLR input or digital input via AES/EBU, S/PDIF or Tos-link with a single touch of this button.
  • Analog Level
    Set the analog input level to fit your source.
  • Meters
    This section gives you a clear readout of what is happening inside the Express e.g. how hot are your input, output, soft-clipping, and compression levels.
  • Normalize Soft-Clip
    Turned on when lit. This section emulates the input stage of analog preamplifiers, giving you that sought after analog sounding soft saturation that adds warmth to your signal.
  • Gain
    Gain immediate control over your input and output levels using gain!
  • Look Ahead Delay
    Press this button to make the Finalizer Express process your signal even more smoothly. By 'Looking Ahead' and foreseeing any unwanted peak or transient information the Finalizer Express is prepared to control the level at the exact moment the anomoly occurs.
  • Soft-Clip
    With the output soft-clipper on, you can emulate the sound and feel of analog equipment, while retaining all the advantages of staying inside the Digital domain.
  • MIDI Channel
    Press these two buttons and use the arrow buttons to select which MIDI channel you wish the Finalizer Express to send and receive from. Especially useful when controlling a master fade with a sequencer.
  • Spectral Balance
    This is the EQ section that will allow you to adjust the spectral balance of your signal. The Emphasis buttons affect the band that corresponds to the knob below for adjusting the low, mid, and high end frequencies.
  • Fade In/Fade Out
    Control your fades using the Fader knob, a remote Master Fader, or a MIDI sequencer. The Express also transmits Fader values via MIDI, so you can record a fade with a sequencer and play it back later, (controlling the fade via MIDI), any way you like.
  • Output
    The Bypass button gives you the ability to hear the enhancements the Finalizer Express adds to your signal. Bypass and listen, compare the two, and adjust the Finalized signal to give you exactly what your mix needs.
  • Analog Out
    From -26 to +6dB, the Knob in this section lets you turn your analog out level up or down quickly and easily. The clear numbering actually tells you exactly what level is coming out of the Finalizer Express.
