The emulations offer combinations of Soft, Medium and Hard Knee settings; Loud, Medium and Normal 'Thrust' settings; and Feed-back and Feed-forward compression. This compressor can offer subtle to aggressive compression. The 'Thrust' settings are various levels of high-pass filtering in the sidechain, allowing less bass signal being fed to the compressor's detection circuit. This results in heavier / punchier bass in the output signal. Feed-back is a vintage style, while feed-forward is a modern style of compression.

The Joemeek SC2 was one of the first products to expose the industry to Ted Fletcher's circuit design. The SC2 uses a photo-electric gain-control element with modern servo-control techniques, which results in accuracy and speed of response to the light source. The strength of the SC2 is in stereo bus compression. The SC2 is not the type of machine that can be simply set and left. It requires experimentation and tweaking. It provides both very musical limiting and compression and reacts to changes in sound in a way that is pleasant to the ear.

Its General Electric US military specification valves (ECC83/12AX7A) and high retention gold plated ceramic valve bases allow the C-1 to produce a fat sound. The first valve stage acts as a voltage amplifier, and the second stage forms part of the gain control element. The gain control is performed by TLA's unique transconductance stage which avoids the use of VCAs. This improves transparency and minimises distortion. This compressor is capable of more drastic action, but generally speaking, its strength is unobtrusive control rather than deliberate creative effect.
