BC2-ME Rev 2 Mastering Buss Compressor


Rev. 2! Front panel now includes the power switch. Includes a high quality blend control with 21 steps. (4-deck potentiometer with conductive plasic and 21 detents).

TK Audio’s vision is to make products that will satisfy our customers needs. During years of success with our BC1, we got a lot of requests for customized units with stepped controls, more suitable for mastering. Therefore we now have the BC2-ME, a unit perfect for mastering. Aside from the stepped controls we also added some nice features like illuminated switches, switchable output-stage between electronically-balanced or transformer balanced class-A.

BC2-ME uses the same basic sound path as the BC1, plus the extra features. The class-A mode offers a more vintage tone, like fat, punchy low-end response with more low mid character. The output section is the same as is found in the DP1. BC2-ME also has a switch that adds extra harmonics to the compressed signal. The blend control offers 23 steps from straight to compressed signal.
