newTube Tech Tube-Tech SMC2BM Multiband Mastering Compressor

The Tube-Tech SMC2BM is one of the most creative and musical audio tools available, and an all-time favourite for countless sound engineers around the world.
  • Description
  • Features

The Tube-Tech SMC2BM is the mastering version of the Tube-Tech SMC2B Stereo Multiband Compressor. The SMC2BM 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.

Switchable crossover points ensure precise control of 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.
On the SMC2BM all audio controls feature High Quality switches, fitted with precision resistors, to ensure extreme accuracy in settings and recalls.

On the SMC2BM all audio controls feature High Quality switches, fitted with precision resistors, to ensure extreme accuracy in settings and recalls.

The design of the x-over networks optimises 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 stabilised.

The SMC2BM is one of the most creative and musical audio tools available, and an all-time favourite for countless sound engineers around the world.
