Tube-Tech Smc 2Bm Mastering Multi-Band  ...Tube-Tech – Tube-Tech Smc 2Bm Mastering Multi-Band 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.

The three compressors feature Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release, and Gain controls, and a display showing gain reduction. Master levels are set with Output Gain and Balance controls. Three bands with Adjustable Crossover PointsThe signal is divided into three bands (Low, Mid & High) by 6dB/octave crossover networks with 12 selectable frequencies: 60 – 1200Hz for Low/Mid band and 6 selectable frequencies: 1.2 – 6.0 Hz for the Mid/High band. The design of the crossover 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 two crossover frequencies are made with a single RC circuit thereby preserving optimum summation of the three bands at the ouThe world’s only “all tube based” multiband compressor designThree bands per channel with variable crossover frequencies between bandsStereo sidechain with variable Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release and Gain controls for all three bandsMaster Output Gain (off to +10 dB)Balance Control (+/-1,5 dB)LED display showing compressionFreq. response @ -3 dB: 5 Hz to 60 kHzLow noise: < -60 dBu @10 dB gainPotentiometers with 31 detents for Threshold, Ratio, Attach, Release and BalanceGain controls with 12 positions gold plated switchesFrequency switches with 6 positions gold plated switchesClickless bypass relay Tube-Tech, Compressors & Limiters SMC2BM

Tube-Tech Eq 1Am Full Range Mastering …

Tube-Tech Eq 1Am Full Range Mastering  ...Tube-Tech – Tube-Tech Eq 1Am Full Range Mastering Equalizer
The Tube-Tech EQ 1AM is the mastering version of the version of the Tube-Tech EQ 1A. Whether you’re adding overall sheen and polish to a final mic, smoothing out harsh vocals and instruments, or just going for some power and punch, the EQ 1AM provides the exactly results you’d expect from a world-class EQ, and does it effortlessly. Built for mastering, the EQ 1M features stepped rotary switches for accuracy and parameter recall. Tube-Tech EQ 1AM Full Range Equalizer, First Take:One-channel, all-tube based parametric equalizerHigh- and low-cut filters25kHz cut for anti-aliasing filtersHigh- and low-cut shelving EQ sections and three overlapping bands with stepped rotary controls for gain and bandwidthAll-Tube Based Parametric EQThe EQ 1AM has seven EQ sections that can be switched in and out, including high- and low-cut, high and low shelving, and three overlapping bands ranging from 40Hz to 20kHz. Except for the power supply, the EQ unit is all-tube based. Both the input and output stages have fully floating transformers for superior electronic isolation, which results in noise-free, ground-loop immune operation. All voltages (with the exception of the anode voltage at the output stage) are DC stabilized, since any variation in the DC energy when combined with the musical signal would cause distortion. Put simply, the EQ 1AM’s DC-stabilized circuits keep the EQ bands free of any unwanted artifacts. EQ is smooth and distortion-free. High- and Low-Cut Filters The cut filters are designed with unity gain amplifiers. This is significant since they don’t load down the source or draw any current. Therefore, they drive the load as if it were a perfect voltage source. They also eliminate distortion due to overload, crosstalk, and other electromagnetic interference. The low- and high-cut sections include a frequency switch with a choice of six frequencies, a slope switch and an inLow cut at 6 frequencies: Slope 6 dB or 12 dB/octaveHigh cut at 6 frequencies: Slope 6 dB or 12 dB/octaveBand 1-3, bell type: 36 overlapping frequencies (12 per band), +/- 20 dB with variable bandwidthLow shelving at 6 frequencies: +/- 15 dBHigh shelving at 6 frequencies: +/- 15 dBAll switches gold platedConductive plastic potentiometersFrequency response: 5 Hz to 60 kHzVery low noise: < -85 dBUMaster bypass with clickless relayAll 7 sections fitted with separate in/out switch Tube-Tech, Equalizers EQ1AM
