SKU: BBE-482I

    Product Description

    If you're unfamiliar with BBE Sound, the company practically made its name from its rackmount Sonic Maximizer units, which are still used extensively in studios today. Made up of a number of filters, BBE Sonic Maximizers are used to excite anaemic-sounding audio signals to record-worthy quality.

    The all-analogue 482i Sonic Maximizer restores natural brilliance and clarity to an audio signal by the use of two integrated functions. First, it adjusts the phase relationships between the low, mid and high frequencies through adding progressively longer delay times to lower frequencies, creating a kind of mirror curve to neutralize the effect of loudspeaker phase distortion. Second, the Sonic Maximizer augments higher and lower frequencies as loudspeakers tend to be less efficient in their extreme treble and bass ranges.

    The end result is a dynamic, program-driven restoration which reveals more of the natural texture and detail in the sound without causing fatigue that is often associated with exciter effects, psychoacoustic processors or excessive use of equalizers.
