From the Front:
"I looked at several designs of compressors and EQs but only one brand fit my criteria of being truly versatile: JDK. I knew that I wanted two channels
of outboard EQ and compression that could handle any task I asked of them. I chose the R22 and R24 because they performed superbly at being workhorse tools while also offering a touch of
class. The R24 is very smooth and is excellent as a sweetening and tracking EQ for additive as well as subtractive EQing on individual tracks as well as program material. The compressor
can be whatever you want it to be — transparent? No problem. Or it can have the flavor and similar pumping slam of its cousin, the API 2500.
"The R22 and R24 are of an industrial build quality with fantastic metal work and super thick steel faceplates. The pots are super smooth and the
knobs are built to last. The toggle switches are solid and the R22's VUs are nice and bright. Both interfaces are well thought out, fun to use and visually appealing in a very classic
way. Pair all of this with API's super personable staff, excellent customer service, a reputation that precedes them, and, let's not forget, great prices. This is a professional product
line that is truly a smart buy."
