The TUBE-TECH SMC 2BM Stereo Multiband Compressor is an all tube-based compressor that adds the warmth of vintage quality masters to your mix.
TUBE-TECH SMC2BM is the mastering version of the famous SMC2B Stereo Multiband Compressor. On SMC2BM all audio controls feature High Quality switches,fitted with precision resistors, to ensure extreme accuracy in settings and recalls. The SMC2BM has become one of the favorite mixing/mastering compressors for many top mastering engineers around the world. The sound of SMC2BM is the same as SMC2B.
Switchable crossover points ensure precise control with all three bands of opto-compression.Independent band specific Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release & Gain parameters make the SMC 2BM as flexible as it is accurate.Gain controls are fitted with 12 position gold plated switches with 1dB/step.Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release and Balance controls are fitted with potentiometers with 31 detents.The TUBE-TECH SMC 2BM Stereo Multiband Compressor features three independent optical stereo compressors.The signal is divided into three bands (Low, Mid & High) by 6 dB/octave x-over networks with 12 selectable frequencies: 60 1200 Hz for Low/Mid band and 6 selectable frequencies: 1,2 6,0 kHz for the Mid/High band.The design of the x-over networks optimizes the summing of all three bands, resulting in a flat frequency response (within +/-0,25 dB), when the gain controls for each band are set at the same level.The three compressors feature Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release and Gain and a display showing gain reduction. Master levels are set with Output Gain and Balance controls.Both Input and Output are balanced and have fully floating transformers with a static screen.
The power supply and the sidechain circuit is based on a solid state circuit. With the exception of the output stage all DC voltages are stabilized.

Meilleur achat ever!
Un gros merci a Louis Simard .... je viens d'installer le Tube tech sur ma chaine de MasterBus tout y est, chaleur profondeur ,compression très subtile, avec une belle rondeur dans les basses. Cette boite est juste magique un A-B avec mon mix original- Read more
unity gain et ont a l'impression de gagner 2-3 db..Ce n'est pas pour toute les bourses j'en conviens mais si vous chercher a investir dans l'analogue vous ne serai pas décu du SMc2Bm PS: le1000$ de plus pour la version Mastering vaut vraiment la peine pour faire un recall! et voila
