The MBC502 500-Series Multi-Band Optical Compressor from SM Pro Audio is designed to provide you with two-channels of frequency specific compression in a dual-slot 500-Series module. It has a 16-stage frequency range selector, allowing you to choose your center frequency. The MBC502 features channel independent input gain control, compression levels, and attack and release times. Each channel also features a compression mute button, which allows the compression-muted channel to function as a filter.
Metering is provided by the MBC502's front panel master level VU meter and its dual gain reduction LED displays. It features a master circuit bypass button as well as a Master Level knob, designed to give you control over the output of both channels of compression. It can be used with any 500-Series power supply and occupies two slots.
- Editing is performed via dedicated oil damped rotary controls, with each compression band sporting independent controls. The exception is the Master Level knob, which gives you simultaneous control over the output levels of both compressor bands
- The MBC502 audio circuit uses the LME 49720 low distortion/low noise Op Amps for its audio output
