The story behind ‘dark’ is that I was searching for the subtle sounds that compressors are capable of back when we were making the SC2 and I found that by altering the timing shape of the release, the sound became somehow ‘darker’, so I put a switch in to switch from the original SC2 to the slightly darker sound.

The C2 is definitely the most under-rated equipment ever! It’s a superb compressor using the same opto devices as the original SC2 so it has the same sound as the best of the SC2s, the release circuit is not quite the same as the SC2V4 but quite honestly there is no difference in performance, it still has the ‘dark’ sound that makes these compressors unique. :)
