The world's only all-tube based multiband mastering compressor!
The Tube-Tech SMC 2BM is the only all-tube based stereo mastering compressor that features multiband compression. Designed specifically for mastering, it offers Tube-Tech's renowned sound quality and precision, plus greater flexibility for the mastering engineer. Based on Tube-Tech's SMC 2B, the SMC 2BM adds matched resistor level controls for precise replication of previously used settings. The 12 step-matched resistor gain controls on the SMC 2BM guarantee channel to channel and recall accuracy within 0.1 dB. Side-chain controls employ 31-detent potentiometers. The unit includes variable crossover points for precise control of all three bands of opto-compression. Independent band-specific threshold, ratio, attack, release and gain parameters make the unit flexible, as well as accurate.
