    The BTUBE-TECH SMC 2BB Stereo Multiband Compressor is an all tube-based compressor that adds the warmth of vintage quality masters to your mix.

    Variable crossover points ensure precise control with all three bands of opto-compression. Independent band specific Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release & Gain parameters make the SMC 2B as flexible as it is accurate.

    The TUBE-TECH SMC 2B Stereo Multiband Compressor features three independent optical stereo compressors. The signal is divided into three bands (Low, Mid & High) by 6 dBoctave x-over networks with variable frequencies: 60-1200 Hz for LowMid band and 1,2-6 kHz for the MidHigh 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 stabilised.
