A Compressor/Limiter/Gate PLUS a Sonic Maximizer!
The BBE MaxCom is a highly sophisticated dual-channel compressor and limiter with gate, housed in a compact and easy-to-use package. It provides a live or recorded mix with all the clean, clear punch that only a truly professional dynamics controller can. However, the MaxCom is much more than a high-quality, superbly engineered compressor/limiter - it also includes a BBE Sonic Maximizer built in!BBE MaxCom at a Glance:
- A compressor/limiter that includes a Sonic Maximizer!
- High-end VCA eliminates artifacts in compressor/gate
- Two independent compressor/limiters with full control functions
- Easy to operate, robust construction, distortion-free operation
A compressor/limiter that includes a Sonic Maximizer!
The MaxCom is the first signal processor of its kind to feature an onboard BBE Sonic Maximizer. The BBE high-definition sound process employed by the Sonic Maximizer is world-renowned among music and sound professionals for remarkable improvements in total sound quality, bringing crystalline clarity and air to your source material as well as revealing rich harmonic subtleties. The MaxCom employs BBE's latest technology, with the very same 4th-generation BBE professional chipset which powers the 482i and 882i Sonic Maximizers. You'll be amazed by the improvement the MaxCom plus the Sonic Maximizer makes in the sound of your tracks!
High-end VCA eliminates noise and artifacts in compressor/gate
The "over-engineering" in the MaxCom ensures that both its compression and gating provide versatility and excellent sonic performance in situations where other compressor/gates often produce undesirable processing artifacts. At the heart of the MaxCom is a THAT Corporation VCA known throughout the industry as the premier dynamics processing VCA, that gives the MaxCom remarkable sound quality for a compressor/limiter in this price range.
Two independent compressor/limiters with full control functions
The MaxCom single-rack-space dynamics processor includes two independent full-featured compressor/limiters, each channel having independent controls for threshold, compression ratio, attack time and release time. Additionally, the MaxCom's "linking" function allows for phase-coherent tracking of stereo signals and adjustment from the Channel One controls. Comprehensive metering on the MaxCom is achieved via dual bargraph meters on each channel that indicate input level and gain reduction.
Easy to operate, robust construction, distortion-free operation
MaxCom's intuitive design makes it easy to operate, and its rigorous engineering and robust construction assure clean, distortion free audio and a predictable, repeatable range of control from undetectable to clearly identifiable. Whether the goal is to pull a "lost" instrument up in the mix, control vocal levels or dial in hard-limited speaker protection, the MaxCom can accomplish the task with ease, reliability and sonic excellence. By offering a superb, full-featured compressor/limiter with an integrated BBE Sonic Maximizer system, the MaxCom has no equal at any price.
