    The Model B240B combines technologies of our Logic-Assisted gate and Easyrider automatic compressor.

    The Logic-Assisted Gate provides reliable, accurate, and stable gate operation. The patented design is designed to never false trigger, click or chatter. Once triggered, the gate progresses through its attack, hold and release sequence.

    The Model 240 is designed to have both the compressor and the gate work as a seamlessly integrated system. When the Logic-Assisted gate activates, the Easyrider compressor is prevented from releasing. This avoids the conflicting the compressor attempting to raise signal level while the gate attempts to reduce it. The gain reduction is frozen until the gate is opened again, avoiding level jumps.

    A front panel multicolored LED bar graph meter displays either peak output level or gain reduction.
