|TK Audio’s newest 500 series module, BC501 stereo bus compressor. Featuring all the power of TK’s flagship BC1-S, the new BC-501 adds even more functions taken from the BC2ME mastering compressor, such as additional ratio settings (1.25:1, 6:1), a THD switch that adds more even harmonics to the signal, and three HPF setting from which to choose (80Hz, 150Hz, 220Hz).
All controls are detented for easy, precise recall. A dedicated Wet/Dry knob allows blending between the original and compressed signals, and an external sidechain input (accessible via stereo 1/8 mini TRS jack) is also provided. I’ve worked overtime preserving all the magic glue of the BC1-S in a 500 series module while giving it even more fine control, states TK Audio president Thomas Kristiansson: I hope everyone will be as pleased as I am with our new baby.
TK Audio was created seven years ago with the idea of bringing modern sensibilities to classic designs. All products are individually hand built and tested in Sweden.
