The upgrade to TK Audio’s famous BC2-ME Mastering Buss Compressor now features a dedicated blend control boasting 21 steps! As its manufacturer will readily attest, the BC2-ME Rev 2 is the perfect unit for mastering. Aside from the stepped controls, the unit’s functionality is improved by the implementation of a switchable output-stage (electronically balanced or transformer balanced class-A) and illuminated switches.
In addition to these stellar upgrades, the BC2-ME Rev 2 benefits form the same signal path as its predecessor, and the same output section found on the DP1. There’s also a dedicated switch for adding more harmonics to the compressed signal.
